Creamy Chicken Baked Flautas

Creamy Chicken Baked FlautasI have seen a few different creamy chicken flautas on the web lately and they inspired me to try my own version. I wanted to keep it flavorful while keeping it slightly healthy. They turned out really delicious! I loved that these flautas used up the extra Southwestern Roasted Chicken and cream cheese I had in the refrigerator. They were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside and they tasted fantastic dipped in the Cilantro and Lime Sour Cream.

Recipe and photos by For the Love of
  • 2 cups of roasted chicken, chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp sweet yellow onion, diced
  • 3 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese (I used 1/3 fat)
  • 3 tbsp Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded (I used lower fat)
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Flour Tortillas
  • Cooking spray

Creamy Chicken Baked Flautas

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil.

Combine the chicken, onion, cilantro, cream cheese, Monterey Jack, coriander, oregano, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Mix until well combined.

Wrap flour tortillas in wet paper towels and microwave them for 1 minute or until soft.

Place a bit chicken mixture down the center of the tortilla; roll. Place, seam side down, on a tinfoil lined baking sheet that’s been coated with cooking spray. Finish rolling the rest of the flautas, then spray each of them with cooking spray.

    Delicious and so simple to make. I accidentally added diced yellow PEPPER before I realized it said onion (which I also added) – it was a nice accidental addition! Thanks for a great meal!

    This is one of the best dinners I have made from a recipe that I found through Pinterest! The was so easy to make and yummy! The cilantro and lime sour cream dipping sauce suggested in the recipe is wonderful with this! However, I used plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. I will make this again!!

    These turned out so good! I added 1/4 tsp of cumin and instead of cooking spray on the top I brushed a mixture of olive oil and cayenne pepper for an extra kick!
