Chicken Flautas

15 flautas

servings

20 minutes

total time

Ingredients

2 c. shredded, cooked chicken

1/4 c. canned, chopped green chiles

1 c. shredded fiesta cheese

1 c. queso blanco

2 tsp. hot sauce, optional

15 small flour tortillas

1/2 c. vegetable, canola, or other neutral oil

For serving: pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole

Directions

In a large bowl, combine chicken, chiles, cheeses, and hot sauce (if using).

Lay 1 tortilla down on a work surface. Spread a heaping 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture onto the bottom third of the tortilla. Roll up tightly and place seam side down on a plate. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

In a 10” skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches between 350-375 degrees F. (You want to hear a sizzle as soon as the food hits the oil.)

Add 3 of the flautas to the oil, seam side down. Cook, turning every 30 to 60 seconds, until golden all over, about 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer flautas to a large paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet. Repeat with remaining flautas. Serve immediately with pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole.

Notes

Try subbing fiesta cheese next time
