Delicious and easy to make Chicken Flautas


  • 23 cups of shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup of Pico De Gallo – I used store bought
  • 1 small can of diced green chiles – undrained
  • 1 cup of shredded Mexican style cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. of onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. of ground pepper
  • 12 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • oil – canola or vegetable oil works well



  • In a large bowl, mix chicken spices, pico De Gallo, cheese, and spices
  • Fill a skillet with about 2 inches high of oil and heat it over medium heat to 375 degrees
  • Place about 2 large spoonfuls of filling onto each flour tortilla
  • Roll tightly and secure with a toothpick – slide it in sideways
  • Place about 4 at a time, seam side down into heated oil
  • Fry each side until golden brown
  • Remove and place on paper towels to drain any excess oil
  • Take toothpicks out of each Flauta before serving


Keeping Flautas Warm

Keep them warm on a parchment-lined baking sheet in the oven that is set to warm or the lowest temperature while preparing the rest of the Flautas

Frying time:

I fried each side for about 1 minute before turning

If they are browning too quickly or turning dark brown, turn the heat down a smidge
