From burritos to quesadillas, you really can’t go wrong with chicken wrapped in a tortilla! Flautas are our new favorite obsession. Made with shredded chicken wrapped in flour tortillas and then pan-fried, they’re somewhere between taquitos and chimichangas. They come together quickly, making them perfect party appetizers or a great weeknight meal served with Mexican rice and beans.
The really great thing about these is how versatile they are. You can use rotisserie chicken, cheddar, and queso blanco like we have here, or change it up with what you prefer or have at home. We’ve added flavor and spice with the addition of canned green chiles, but you can use salsa or pickled jalapenos instead. You could also use a different combination of cheeses such as Monterey jack, pepper jack, Oaxaca, or feta. For a variation, try shredded pork instead of chicken.
