The first time I made these I followed the recipe and fried in oil, I liked them then but didn't like how oily they were from frying. The next I made these I borrowed the directions for Oven Fried Chimichangas #28148, I brushed the flautas with 2 T melted butter and baked at 400 for 25 minutes, they came out great!
We really enjoyed these. I used a 4 cheese Mexican blend, since I had it on hand, and the avocado I had was a little on the mushy side so it wasn't quite as chunky. Nonetheless, it was quite delicious! I used Sakeenah's suggestion and baked the flautas, and they were perfect. Thanks for sharing!
Delish, and there are leftovers for me! LOL I made this for dinner with a friend and they were great! My avocado was a little less firm and I used a plum tomato from the yard, small dice, so not so chunky, more 'creamy.' I also used a pepper jack, for a little extra heat! These rolled up easily and fried up pretty quickly. I may try the brushing with oil and baking, next time. Sounds like the same result, with a little less oil! Thanks for sharing, Charmie777.
This was a nice combo. We liked the flavor of the flautas and agree that this is a great way to use left over chicken. We thought the mixture could be a little more moist though and wished they had been baked rather than fried to be more figure friendly. Good luck chef!
These were great! I didn't add the cheese, as my dining companion is lactose intolerant but they didn't feel like they were missing anything. Thanks and good luck!
Wonderful authentic taste. Guacamole was the best I have had, even better than my favorite mexican restaurant!
Winning Crispy Crunchy Chicken Flautas with a Great Creamy Guacamole! Very easy to make. Even thought I hate to fry food this is quick. I was wanting to add more cheese and didn`t because I wanted to stay as close to the recipe as I can. Good Luck! Thanks.
This was a FANTASTIC recipe. I try to stay away from fried food, but couldn't resist making this when I read the ingredients... and I'll definitely be making it again. :) My jalapeno was rather large and I have small children, so I only 1/2 of it in the flautas and the other 1/2 in the guacamole. Both turned out delicious, but I might try more jalapeno next time for me and my hubby. The guacamole was wonderful and a great complement to the flautas. I can't think of anything I would change except maybe a little bit more cheese as it was hard to taste. Can't wait to make these again!! Oh, I made the whole batch and toasted the leftovers in my toaster oven for a few minutes... they were just as tasty! Thanks for this great creation!
I can't believe I didn't think of this!! ;) This was *Excellent* I knew when I saw the ingredients I would enjoy this recipe. I love taquitos and guacamole. I've never used flour tortillas, I think this gave it a nice crunch. This was really easy to prepare. Served along side spanish rice and beans. Made a perfect Mexican Fiesta. Great RSC Recipe, good luck! ~V
