My man took the reigns again tonight for dinner. He is something of a connoisseur of all foods south of the border. So he offered to make flautas this week for dinner and I scheduled him for tonight! 


Anyway, they're pretty easy to make. Here's how it's done:

corn tortillas (we use Guerrero) 
oil for frying

1. In a deep fry pan, pour between 1/2 inch to an inch of oil. Turn the burner to medium and allow the oil to heat.
2. Meanwhile, Cook the chicken thoroughly and shred it. Or, if you prefer, shred it and then cook it. We're flexible.
3. Lay a little of the shredded chicken on a tortilla. Roll into a tube (we recommend sticking a toothpick through it to keep it that way, they tend to break easily) and put into the heated oil. Fry until lightly golden.

Enjoy topped with lettuce (or spinach if you forgot this is what you were having for dinner and didn't get any lettuce, but happily found it tasted alright), pevre, and sour cream. We had rice and black beans on the side. Delish! Thanks, hon!
