"Every now and again we get emails from people asking us to post their recipes- which I love. I love recipe sharing and comparing how people make certain dishes, or how they add a nice twist to classics. This recipe comes from the V&V Supremo folks featuring their tasty cheeses. Of all the recipes, this one caught my attention the most (I'll be posting more in the next few days). Who doesn't love goeey, cheesy flautas for dinner? This recipe is easy, low key and flavorful and pleases vegetarians too (you can add some store bought shredded chicken if you want). Enjoy and stay tuned for more V&V Supremo recipes!"
