Chicken Flautas

I can't remember where I found this recipe, so if it's yours, thanks for sharing. These are delicious. I do need to get better at keeping them rolled tight while frying them.

As you can see, there is also rice in the above picture. This was my attempt to modify a recipe for Cilantro Lime Rice that I found on The lime was very overpowering and this rice got horrible reviews from the family. It does have potential though and when I figure out how to make it better, I will post it. So for now, just enjoy the flautas, they are so good.

1 pkg 6 inch flour tortillas
2 chicken breasts (cooked and shredded)
1 can Rotel tomatoes with cilantro and lime
1 finely chopped green onion
1/2 tsp Garlic salt

Mix together ingredients (except tortillas). Heat oil in pan. Put a small amount of chicken mixture into each tortilla and roll tight. Fry in oil while holding tightly with tongs, turning a few times until brown and crispy. Place on paper towel to remove excess oil, sprinkle with a little salt then serve dipped in sour cream and salsa while still hot.

  1. I tried that cilantro lime rice at allrecipes too a couple of months ago. Brett liked it but I hated it. The flavors were off and did not taste like Cafe Rio rice. That is what I was going for.

    I need to try these flautas. I love them when eating out.

  2. I love flautas. I'll have to give these a try!

  3. Oh yummy! These look really good, I can't wait to try them.
