This is our secret recipe for Flautas, the secret is Parmesan cheese, I know, you are saying "huh", that's not Mexican, well after you taste them, then you will see how good they taste, you can also add other things inside, but I would make them like this first so you can see what might go good with them for next time. You can also add more cheese, I am a very light cheese eater now, so I always use less. To make these even more wonderful, add some sour cream and a dollop of guacamole and some shredded lettuce.
6 medium Flour tortilla's
2 med-sized chicken breast
1 ts garlic salt
1/2 white onion
1/2 cup cheese; grated, (more if needed)
1 tablespoon of Oil; and butter for frying
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; for rolling flautas in
I fillet the breast with a knife, each breast in 3 slices so that they cook quicker,
put salt, pepper, garlic salt on each fillet.
Cook chicken breast in a heated saute pan with butter, oil, Let cool, save juices
In food processor, put in onion, and process until minced,
set aside in a bowl, then cut chicken in pieces and process them as well until minced,
you may have to do a few batches. Once they are minced,
add them to the onion, add any chicken juices to the mix,
then add your cheese and mix well, add some salt and pepper and taste
it should bond together like meat loaf, that is the perfect consistency.
Take your tortillas and heat them on open fire, both sides,
get a few brown spots on there, that is good for flavor,
line up your tortillas and divide your mix among the 6 tortillas
. If you have extra then just make another one.
On a separate plate sprinkle a good portion of Parmesan cheese for rolling.
Roll up tortilla fairly tight without breaking them, when they are all rolled,
keep them seam side down on counter until you are ready to cook
.heat your oil and butter up in a saute pan, high heat and cook 3 at a time,
use 2 spoons to roll them as they cook, you can lean them up on each other
as you cook them on all sides, its very easy, you want them brown,
not burned, so just kind of keep rolling them, when they look fantastic,
take them out and set them in the Parmesan cheese and roll them,
covering them generously,
put them on a serving platter. You can heat them in the micro
if you need to keep them hot.
