I’m like most other girls…I don’t care for the SuperBowl. The “Beyonce SuperBowl Half-Time Show” however is something that I can get into!

For this o’ so special occasion our party hosts were holding a ‘Best SuperBowl Dish’ contest (and if there’s anything you need to know about me it’s that I like to win). With the prized trophy in mind, I decided to try out PEASandCRAYONS‘ Baked Black Bean + Sweet Potato Flautas.

P. to the S. if you haven’t heard of PEASandCRAYONS she is AWESOME! Jenn is also a Registered Dietitian (so it’s a little unfair for me to even put ‘RD tested + approved’ on this recipe) & her witty posts will keep you giggling on top of her uber delicious, veggie-loaded recipes.

Sadly, I did not win the coveted ‘Best SuperBowl Dish’ trophy, but I did find a must-have recipe to add to my recipe collection. The flautas turned out super flavorful & they process was pretty simple once I set up my assembly line. Couple of notes:
1. If you used canned beans or mexi-corn, be sure to drain AND rinse the solids to get rid of excess salt (you don’t need it!).
2. DO NOT SKIP STEAMING THE TORTILLAS! OK, lesson learned. My 1st ‘un-steamed’ tortillas totes fell apart & were not pretty (still tasty, but not pretty)! 15 seconds in the microwave wrapped in a damp paper towel is all they need 🙂

Hope y’all give ‘em a try! I think they would freeze & reheat nicely if you wanted to make up a large batch. What were your favorite goodies from the SuperBowl?
