Chicken Flautas With Chunky Guacamole

"Ole!!! Flautas are similar to taquitos, which are rolled tacos. These flautas use flour tortillas to give them light crispiness! The perfect accompaniment is chunky guacamole, with many of the same flavors from the flautas--enjoy!"

Ready In:
12 flautas




  • FLAUTAS: In a bowl, combine all flauta ingredients (excluding tortillas and oil). Allow to rest about 15 minutes to marry flavors.
  • Place about 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture in center of flour tortilla, and roll-up like a cigar. Secure with a toothpick.
  • Continue with remaining tortillas. Keep flautas covered with a damp paper towel to prevent drying out.
  • Heat enough oil in skillet to come almost halfway up sides of flautas (about 1/4 inch depth).
  • Quickly fry flautas on all sides until lightly golden brown. This happens very quickly, so don't walk away.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve with Chunky Guacamole.
  • CHUNKY GUACAMOLE: Dice avocados into chunks and place in a medium bowl.
  • Add remaining guacamole ingredients, and gently toss to combine.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

  1. 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!
  2. Oh yeah, these were so good!! I was worried the filling would be too dry and once you dipped it in the guacamole, it was perfect :) For the guacamole I used lime juice instead of lemon. Whole family enjoyed!
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
