Aunt Michele’s Flautas – Happy Birthday Mom!

This is my Aunt Michele’s Recipe. I only make these once a year as they make a HUGE, Greasy mess, and well they are really bad for you! They are fried goodness, but holy mess! So my mom LOVES these! I usually make these for her for her Birthday or for Mother’s Day! So what mom wants on her day, mom gets! So my Mom’s Birthday is January 28th and I had her over for dinner! Told her I would make her flautas, cause I know she loves them and then I told her to pick what else she wanted. She picked my Macaroni Salad.
