Ingredients

  • 2 cups Shredded Salsa Chicken See Notes For Recipe
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese Your Preference
  • 8 Flour Tortillas Fajita Size
  • Cooking Spray

Optional Pairings:

  • 1 Large Ripe Avocado Smashed and mixed with lime juice and salt
  • Pickled Red Onions Thinly sliced red onions, pickled with lime juice and salt
  • Shredded Cabbage
  • Chopped Tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet with cooking oil. Warm tortillas in the oven while it's preheating for about 3-5 min just until they are just warm and soft.

  2. Place 2 spoonfuls or enough chicken to cover tortilla end to end, and top with shredded cheese. I like to place chicken and cheese just below the center in order to have more area to roll the flauta tightly.
  3. Place seem side down on greased baking sheet. After all flautas are rolled, space them out and spray each one with cooking oil from top to bottom.

  4. Bake for 12-14 min and turn them halfway. I use tongs to ensure they don't fall apart.
  5. While the flautas are baking you can make guacamole, or any other pairings you like to serve them with.
