Green Chile Chicken Flautas

First time making and trying flautas! I was forced to eat frozen taquitos when I was younger and haven’t been interested in rolled tacos since. But I had some rotisserie chicken I needed to use up and I saw a post on instagram that looked so delicious! 

15 uncooked Flour Tortillas

4 cups Rotisserie Chicken

1 cup Onion; chopped

1 cup Bell Pepper; cored and chopped

2 cloves Garlic; minced

1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

½ teaspoon Ancho Chile Powder

4 oz Green Chiles; drained

1 cup Sweet Corn

½ cup Mexican Blend Cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Sauté the onions and bell peppers until tender before adding the garlic and cooking until fragrant. 

Add in the chicken and cook until heated through. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the spices, corn, cheese and green chiles. Remove from the heat and toss to coat.

Heat another skillet with ½” of oil over medium heat. While it heats up, fill each of the tortillas with the chicken mixture. Roll tightly, then set aside seam side down. 

Fry the flautas until golden brown on all sides and place on a wire rack to drain the excess oil. Garnish with sour cream, pico de gallo and guacamole.
