As you can see in a previous post of mine here, I am quite a fan of the Better Bean Company line of products.

All of their products are gluten free, vegan, non-GMO, and are packed in BPA-free packaging that is both recyclable & freezable. Pretty impressive, right? They truly are better beans...

I recently gave their Uncanny Refried Black Beans a try, and boy were they tasty!

I knew immediately that I wanted to create something that allowed their already amazing flavor to shine through. Hence, these beautiful flautas. . .

I started by whipping up a batch of my red chile sauce, for which you can find the recipe :: here ::. The only modification I made was using Ancho chiles in place of the New Mexican chiles. You can use any dried red chile you would like, the technique & recipe will work all the same! And, if you find yourself pinched for time, you can always purchase pre-made sauce if you prefer. Either way, red chile is always delicious, yeah?

And, check out those yummy beans. . .
