Enjoy a simple treat with friends and families. Rolled in a crunchy tortilla flautas are easy to make. Don’t forget to serve the flautas hot on a platter with a bowl of your favorite flavor of Cocina Fresca Salsa for dipping.


Ingredients

  • Large chicken breasts with skin and bone
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Toothpicks
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Seasoning of choice

Instructions

  1. Boil the chicken breasts until they are cooked through.

  2. Remove the chicken and let it cool until you can handle it comfortably. Remove the skin and bones and shred the meat with a fork.

  3. Season to taste with your favorite Texas-Style spices.

  4. Roll 2 tablespoons of chicken into a corn tortilla until it is a tight “cigar”. Use a toothpick to secure.

  5. In a large skillet, heat ¼ inch of oil over medium heat. Add the flautas 4-5 at a time and cook them until they are golden brown and crispy on all sides, turning them as they cook. Continue to cook the rest of the flautas, adding more oil as needed. Remove the toothpicks after you have fried.

  6. Serve the flautas hot on a platter with a bowl of your favorite flavor of Cocina Fresca Salsa for dipping.
