Quick & Easy Chicken Flautas

14 April 2020 Bookmark1
I continually love having several high-quality easy recipes for busy nights. these meals aren't completely homemade but as a substitute they use easy components which might be pantry staples.

These bird flautas use canned fowl. yes, canned hen through out years of cooking dinner i have observed that canned bird is really an awesome short & clean aspect to use for recipes.

I'd in no way serve it undeniable as is from the can, but whilst you upload other stuff to it, it is certainly appropriate and virtually no person can even inform the distinction. The canned chicken is what makes this recipe so short and easy to make.

Flautas are historically a rolled up tortilla with filling inner them. sort of like a taquito however flautas use flour tortillas. Which makes this recipe kid-friendly because i have by no means met a kid that does not like flour tortillas. 

Spraying the tops of the flautas earlier than baking with cooking spray, facilitates them to get outstanding crispy and browned. It actually is the secret step so don’t forget it.

Quick & Easy Chicken Flautas


  • 2 cans (12.5 oz each) chicken, drained & flaked
  • 6 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 8" flour tortillas


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Combine drained and flaked chicken, cream cheese, salsa, cheese, cumin, and garlic powder in a mixing bowl. Stir together until well combined. 
  3. Spread 3 tablespoons (a large spoonful) of chicken mixture onto a tortilla. Roll up tightly and place seam side down on a cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas. 
  4. If you use smaller tortillas then you won't need the full 3 tablespoons of filling, so adjust accordingly.
  5. Spray the tops of the flautas with cooking spray. Don't soak them but you want them to have a decent coating of cooking spray so they will get really brown and crispy. I also like to sprinkle some kosher salt on top of the sprayed flautas, but this is totally optional.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until they reach desired crispness that you want. Let cool for about 5-10 minutes before serving so the filling can cool and come together. Serve with dips of your choice (sour cream, salsa, guacamole).
