My husband is hispanic and started making these shortly after we were married. I was suprised that most of the flauta recipes on here called for deep frying them! We've always baked them! Also, instead of dipping each tortilla in oil, you can coat both sides with cooking spray--just heat tortillas in the microwave first--it should work just the same. Also, your chicken breast size will determine how many you actually make (I estimated what we normally make) You can use whatever fillings you want and add whatever you'd like...this is just the base of what we typically use.
