Delicious Chicken Flautas with a cheesy chicken filling tightly rolled in a golden, fried flour tortilla.
Add the Canola oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat, and wait for the oil to reach between 350°-375°. In the meantime, assemble the flautas.
Mix the shredded chicken and cheese in a large bowl together and set aside until ready to use.
Wrap a stack of 3-5 flour tortillas at a time in damp paper towel and place on a microwavable -safe plate. Microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute intervals, just until the tortillas are soft and pliable.
Add about 2 tablespoons of filling to each tortillas and roll tightly. Once you have 3-4 flautas assembled, begin adding them to the oil one at a time.
Gently add the flautas to the hot oil seam-side down, and using a pair of tongs, hold it in place for about 15 seconds. Fry for 30-45 seconds on each side, or until the flauta is golden in color. Set aside on a plate lined with paper towels, and repeat with remaining flautas.
Serve with desired topping and enjoy!
