Chicken Taquitos (Flautas de Pollo)

  • Chicken Taquitos with lettuce and sour cream

Taquitos (AKA flautas). You’ve probably seen them in large brightly colored boxes in the frozen food aisle of your neighborhood big-box store. If you’ve never had homemade flautas before, you’re in for a real treat. They are so simple and easy to make, yet absolutely delicious and dangerously addictive!

The trick is to buy good quality tortillas and to microwave them before you fill and fry them. Traditionally the would be par-cooked individually on a skillet, but this more modern approach allows you to prep a whole stack of tortillas in one go.

For a variation, substitute the shredded poached chicken with a dry-rubbed slow cooker beef (try a brisket!).
