Homemade Flautas
Ingredients
4 cups cubed Raley's pork shoulder roast, trimmed of fat
1 (16- oz.) container Raley's Fresh Pico de Gallo
1 (7.75- oz.) can El Pato Mexican Style Tomato Sauce
1 (7- oz.) can salsa verde
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. oregano leaves
12 flour tortillas
3 slices pepper Jack cheese, cut into 12 strips
2 tbsp. oil
Guacamole (optional)
Directions

Prep: 25 minutes, Cook: 2 hours total, Makes: 12 flautas

1. Combine pork, pico de gallo, tomato sauce, salsa and seasonings in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.

2. Remove lid and simmer for 1 hour more or until pork shreds easily (a potato masher makes quick work of this). Simmer for a few minutes more until fairly dry.

3. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with foil; spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon about 2 tbsp. shredded pork down the center of each tortilla. Top each with a strip of cheese; roll up and secure with a toothpick.

4. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush with oil. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy and lightly browned. Serve with additional pico de gallo and guacamole.
