  • Step 1

    Prepare green salsa by placing tomatillos, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and salt in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Transfer to saucepan and cook until tomatillo sauce changes color to olive green, about 5 to 6 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in medium non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add potatoes and red bell peppers, stirring constantly until potatoes are lightly browned and peppers are tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

  • Step 3

    Warm tortillas for 10 to 15 seconds on each side in an ungreased pan.

  • Step 4

    Assemble flautas by spreading the mixture and shredded cheese evenly on center each tortilla, leaving a half inch border around the edges. Roll up the tortillas tightly. Heat 2 tablespoons canola oil on same skillet over medium high heat. Place flautas seam side down and allow to cook for 2 minutes. Carefully flip and continue cooking until evenly golden and crisp, about 4 to 5 minutes total.

  • Step 5

    Top flautas with warm green salsa and garnish with sour cream.
