I have some exciting news, I’ll be one of the Keynote Speakers at the 30th Annual Student Conference on Latinx Affairs at Texas A&M University this April!

I’ll be visiting Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio while I’m there. If you have any favorite food spots, please feel free to share your recommendations with me!
I was procrastinating over the weekend, trying to live my best life binging on the new season of “One Day at a Time”, until I convinced myself I needed to get up and be productive. I remembered I had a couple of cans of jackfruit from Trader Joe’s sitting in my pantry from a post that never came to fruition, so I started to think about what I could MacGyver with them and with what I had around, and flautas started to sound really good.
Some people use flour tortillas for their flautas, but I personally like to use corn because I prefer its crunch. When it comes to the filling, you can pretty much get away with stuffing them with just about anything. I didn’t have any portobellos hanging in the fridge, but those would also be a good substitute for jackfruit and would give the filling even more fajita vibes.
I was a bit skeptical about how the vegan crema would taste, but it actually turned out pretty delicious, there’s a whole lot of flavor in there and it tastes even better after it has chilled in the fridge for one or two hours.
If you need something to binge this weekend, One Day at a Time is worth the watch, and the new Queer Eye on Netflix is also pretty great. It’s nice to see the guys take the time to unpack stigmas like what it means to be femme and queer, or even talk about what it is like to be Black in Trump’s America, and of course if you need something to eat while you’re binging away, give these flautas a try.
Have a great Valentine’s Day!
