Baked Chicken Flautas
I grew up in the kitchen eating Mexican food every day and never got tired of it. These are a great dish for "Mexican or Taco Night." They are easy to eat and what kid doesn't like chicken tacos (that's what my 8-year-old brother calls them). Others prefer to microwave the tortillas, roll up the flautas, and then deep-fry them. Baking them just makes me feel a tad less guilty. I like to serve these with refried beans, fresh lettuce, green salsa, and top it off with more shredded cheese and sour cream.
If you are in a hurry, you could buy a roasted chicken from the grocery store and shred that chicken instead, cutting your cooking time almost in half!
