10 flautas


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

  • 3 cooked chicken breasts, shredded

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded Mexican cheese blend

  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles

  • ¾ cup sweet BBQ sauce

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 10 flour tortillas

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and red bell pepper; cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Set aside.

  3. Combine chicken, onion-pepper mixture, Mexican cheese, chiles, BBQ sauce, and chili powder in a bowl.

  4. Brush both sides of each tortilla with butter. Warm tortillas in a skillet over low heat, about 5 minutes.

  5. Spoon 1/3 cup chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up tightly; place seam-side down in the prepared baking pan.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven, brushing with any remaining melted butter, until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can also use a whole roasted chicken, both white and dark meat.
