As a mom to four kiddos, I don't always have the time that I would like to make dinner. If it were up to me, I would be preparing and serving complex dishes that have a lot of ingredients - but that's not the case, there just isn't always time for that! I need easy, real homemade meals that can be made in 30 minutes or less. These Weeknight Flautas are just that - 4 ingredients needed and they are on the table before you know it. My kinda meal! And don't let the number of ingredients in this recipe fool you about the flavor that's packed inside - with the help of Campbell's new Soups for Easy Cooking, these flautas have the flavors of tomato, peppers, onion, garlic, lime juice and cilantro.

These Weeknight Flautas were an absolute hit at our house - from the 2-year olds to the adults! My kids' favorite dish to request for take-out is rolled taquitos {with guacamole and cheese} from our favorite Mexican restaurant. These flautas easily took the take-out taquito's place. Easily. Since these aren't fried {they're baked}, this is a healthier option. Plus, it's less expensive and takes about the same amount of time as running up to the restaurant. These Weeknight Flautas have quickly made their way into our weeknight dinner rotation!

So, is the best part about this recipe the delicious flavors? Or the short amount of time it takes to cook? It's a toss-up because both aspects are making this a winner-winner-chicken-dinner! I used Mexican Style Tomato Campbell's Soups for Easy Cooking, which was a perfect flavor pairing with the condiments of guacamole, sour cream and salsa. I bet this Weeknight Flautas recipe would be awesome with the other Soups for Easy Cooking varieties as well, maybe just switch up the condiments for better flavor pairings.

Campbell's Soups for Easy Cooking are available in the following varieties:

Savory Portobello Mushroom {try as a substitute to Cream of Mushroom}
Creamy Herb & Garlic with Chicken Stock {try as a substitute to Cream of Chicken}
Sweet Onion {try as a substitute to Condensed French Onion Soup}
Mexican Style Tomato {try as a substitute to Condensed Tomato Soup}

These Soups for Easy Cooking are specifically designed to be used as an ingredient for cooking but can also be enjoyed in a bowl, as good ol' soup. If you'd like to give a Soups for Easy Cooking a try {maybe jazz up a classic dish that calls for a "Cream of" soup} - make sure to bring along this .75¢ coupon to the store with you! {coupon goes live on 3/13 on and will be valid for 1 month} I found the soups on the soup aisle at my local Walmart.
