Chicken Flautas



Flautas are made from flour tortillas that are filled, rolled up, and fried until extra-crispy and bursting with a savory, spiced filling.

Chicken Flautas


This delicious, crunchy variation of tacos comes from Jalisco, Mexico, where it is popular snack food.





Tacos rolled tightly and pan-fried until crisp so they resemble tubes or “flutes,” become flautas.

Shortcut: For the easiest shredded chicken, pick up a rotisserie chicken from your grocery store, remove the bones and skin, and shred with two forks. One whole rotisserie chicken generally yields about 4 cups shredded.
