We are huge Mexican fans. I usually like to make something Mexican for dinner Friday nights as a weekend "kick-off". I always order Chicken Flautas when we are out for Mexican, however, never tried making at home. I decided to give it a try & was happy with the results.
Simple Chicken Flautas
1/2 whole chicken shredded
1 can chicken broth
1 cup Monetary Jack Cheese (shredded)
1 cup Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
24 Corn Tortillas
I like to cook my chicken in a crock pot with a can of chicken broth, however, you could boil if you prefer. Another easy solution is to buy a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken instead. I usually have a chicken already in the freezer & at 99 cents a lb...you can't beat that. It takes about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours to cook in the crock pot.
Once chicken is falling off the bones, shred. I only used 1/2 the chicken and that make plenty. I used the rest of my shredded chicken in a casserole the following week.
Mix chicken with salsa (I used 2 cups of my homemade salsa). To soften tortillas place each one in frying pan, on medium heat, with small amount of vegetable oil. 5-10 seconds on each side.
Scoop about 1 tablespoon of chicken mixture in center of tortilla & sprinkle cheese on top. Roll tightly and place on baking sheet (seam side down). Sprinkle a little more cheese on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes.
