Growing up in a Mexican household I got to grow up learning how to cook Mexican dishes by mom, who is an amazing cook. Chicken flautas is hands down the best and easiest dish that became my favorite to cook.
This was one of the first dishes my mom taught me how to make as a child, which I can make from the back of my hand without using a recipe. Sometimes on my days off I make chicken flautas for my family, which they enjoy very much. One thing for sure is that I am glad my mom was able to share this with me because now I can pass this down to my kids one day.
What You Will Need:
- Corn Tortillas
- Whole Chicken
- 2 tablespoons of Oil
- Cheese Powder
- Sour Cream
- Red or Green Salsa
First you want to strip a whole cooked chicken until it is boneless and start picking them apart in small pieces. Place the shredded chicken in a bowl.
Next you want to grab about 6-8 corn tortillas and place them in a Ziplock bag and place it in the microwave for about 1 minute. This way the tortilla comes out warm and soft for it to be rolled up with the chicken inside.
Once you finished rolling the tortillas and chicken. You want to grab a pan and place 2 tablespoon of oil inside. Once you start seeing the oil sizzling, go ahead and start placing as many flautas as you can fit in the pan for it can start grilling.
As you roll the flautas around on the pan, it should start hardening into a light brown shade. That lets you know it is ready to go and place them onto a container that will hold all flautas together.
Finally, we have the best for last, the toppings. You want to go ahead add lettuce on top, along with the shredded cheese, and sour cream on top. I personally love spice in my food, so adding salsa on flautas just makes up the whole dish a lot better. Enjoy!
