    GingerlyJ's Note:

    This is my favorite Mexican dish. I have been searching for a recipe for years but all fell short. Then one Saturday morning i saw this on cooking for real with Sunny Anderson. It's just pure heaven It got it's name because of it's long thin shape. Flauta is Spanish for Flute

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 16

    Yield:

    Flautas

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fill a large pot with enough oil to reach 2 inches up the side of the pan. Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reads 375 degrees F. To make the flautas: In a pan over medium heat melt butter and saute onions and jalapenos until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, and cayenne pepper and cook until fragrant, another 2 minutes. Add chicken and salsa; stir to combine. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro, cheese and lime juice. Let cool slightly.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Working with 4 tortillas at a time, spread a heaping spoonful along the middle of each tortilla. Roll tortilla tightly around the filling and secure with a toothpick. Using tongs, hold each flauta in hot oil until firm, then release to continue cooking. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes, then remove to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately season with salt. Keep flautas warm in the oven on a sheet tray while assembling and cooking the remaining tortillas.
    4. 4
      To make the Avocado Cream: In a serving bowl, mash avocado, sour cream and lime juice until smooth. Season with salt, to taste.
    5. 5
      To serve, arrange flautas on a platter of shredded lettuce and serve with Avocado Cream on the side.

      I tried this last night, it was amazing, I used corn tortillas, they hold up way better during the frying process

      Fantastic dish!! I LOVE the avocado cream sauce, I adjusted the spices a bit (especially cilantro and salt) to taste and used my deep fryer. Leftovers were great, and I even froze the last of them and cooked them a couple weeks later and they were still very tasty! Thanks for sharing!
