Chicken and Cheese Flautas

We love Mexican food, and this was a great Mexican dish that's easy to make at home.   You could use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, but we still love the crock pot salsa chicken.  These didn't take long to make, and you could easily add ingredients to your liking--maybe black beans inside or guacamole as a dipping sauce.

I got this recipe from Framed Cooks; she has such beautiful photos (and delicious recipes).  Check her out, if you haven't yet. 

We'll make these again!  Hope you try them and like them!

Chicken and Cheese Flautas

4 large flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
1 tsp cumin
1/2 cup salsa
Vegetable oil
Sour cream

In a small bowl, combine cheese, chicken, and cumin.  Mix well.  Place about 1/4 cup chicken mixture on each warm tortilla.  Top each with one tablespoon of salsa.  Roll up tightly; secure each with a toothpick.  Brush filled tortillas with oil.

In a large skillet, cook filled tortillas over medium heat for 4-6 minutes or until filling is hot and tortillas are toasted, turning occasionally.  Remove toothpicks, and serve with sour cream and jalapenos.
