Taquitos and Flautas: What Is the Difference?
Do you like your tortilla rolled, filled with delicious ingredients, and fried? Then taquitos and flautas are for you. But why are there two varieties of delicious rolled and fried tortillas? The main difference is in the type of tortilla used.
If you love the delicious flavor and texture of a corn tortilla, especially once it is fried, then taquitos are for you. If you prefer the delightful texture of a flour tortilla, then you should give flautas a try. It is easy to remember which is which because flour and flautas both begin with the letters FL. With that little trick, you should never get confused between the two again. Just one note of caution: if you have an allergy, always check the packaging. For example, don’t assume there is no wheat just because a corn tortilla is used.
