Easy Chicken Flautas

Martha Price


If you have leftover chicken, these flautas are a snap to make! They taste so good, and the ingredients can be varied to suit your taste.

They are baked instead of fried, but still turn out crispy.

I like to serve them with sour cream, salsa and guacamole for dipping. Try them, you'll like them!
