  • 1214 corn tortillas or 810 flour tortillas
  • 6 small potatoes
  • 34 large carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 onions, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup vegan chorizo (see above)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/21 tsp salt or to taste


  • Shredded cabbage
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Avocado slices
  • Salsa Verde
  • Queso Fresco


  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook potatoes for 10-15 minutes depending on their size.
  2. Poke with a fork to check for doneness and then drain, and set aside to cool off. Once cooled, peel potatoes and mash.
  3. Meanwhile, the potatoes are cooking or cooling off, shred your carrots and add them to a large mixing bowl to season with cumin, onion powder, pepper, and salt.
  4. Turn a large pan on medium heat. Once hot, add oil and diced onions. Cook for 3-4 minutes, then add garlic and cook for another 30 seconds or so.
  5. Next, add shredded carrots and pan-fry for about 3 minutes and then add vegan chorizo to cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  6. Next, add water and potato puree. Mix everything together and turn the heat off after about 3 minutes.
  7. Turn a griddle on medium-high heat to heat up your tortillas. Heat up for about 30 seconds on each side.
  8. Place tortilla on a cutting board and add 1 spoonful of carrot-potato filling and roll up to form a flauta or taquito.
  9. Repeat step 8 until all flautas have been made. Brush lightly with oil and place in air fryer at 390 F for 7-10 minutes until golden crispy.
  10. Serve with shredded cabbage, salsa, avocado, cheese, and diced tomatoes.
