Authentic Mexican Flautas

In few of our last posts, we have talked about the authentic Mexican cuisine. In this article, we have come up with another authentic Mexican food and that is the authentic Mexican Flautas. Flautas originated in Sinaloa, a state in northern Mexico. With time, it became popular all across the United States. The authentic Mexican Flautas consist of a corn tortilla, filled with a number of ingredients like the shredded chicken, mashed potatoes and beef, rolled up and then fried. In this article, we present the recipe of authentic Mexican style chicken Flautas.

Mexican Chicken Flautas

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Serves: 5

Ingredients:

  • 1 chicken breast, fully cooked and shredded
  • corn tortillas: 5
  • chopped lettuce
  • shredded cheese
  • table cream
  • toothpicks
  • frying oil
  • salsa verde

For the Pico De Gallo

  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 onion, dice
  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped jalapeno
  • lime juice
  • salt to taste

Directions:

  1. Layer chicken in the middle of heated tortillas and roll. Fix the flautas with tooth pick.
  2. Fry flautas into canola oil on a medium heat.
  3. Top with lettuce, table cream, lime juice, salsa and pico de gallo.

The part that I like most about this recipe is that it contains the fresh Mexican flavors of salsa fresca or pico de gallo. You may also use other toppings like chopped lettuce, cheese, crème and avocado with guacamole. In addition, make sure that you watch flautas carefully during frying. The amount of time that you fry them in the oil is based on your preferred texture. If you like them to be little bit softer, you should fry them longer. If you want, you can add some chopped jalapenos as topping to sharpen the Mexican flavors. This recipe is quick and makes a healthy and delicious breakfast if you prepare the filling before hand. Try this authentic Mexican Flautas recipe and I am sure you are going to like it.
