1 15-ounce can refried beans

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1 pound ground beef

2 cups salsa divided

8 6-inch flour tortillas

1.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 tomato cored and chopped

1/2 head iceberg lettuce shredded

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 white onion chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium saucepan, combine the refried beans, cumin, garlic salt and Monterrey Jack cheese. Heat over low heat for a few minutes or until heated.
In a large skillet, crumble the beef and brown. Drain the grease. Add half of the salsa and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed.
Spread each tortilla with hot bean mixture and spread the meat over the beans. Roll the tortillas and place, seam side down in a single layer in a large well-greased baking pan.
Pour remaining salsa on top. Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese, tomato and onion. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Serve each flauta on a bed of lettuce and top with jalapenos and sour cream.
