1.) Season your chicken and poache in a skillet with chicken stock.

2.) While your chicken cooks, cut up your spinach to make 2-3 cups (It really shrivels up to nothing when it cooks).  If you have a jalepeno, chop it up and add it along with the spinach to a skillet with a little chicken stock and cook it.  I used green pepper sauce because I didn’t have a jalepeno.

3.) After your chicken cooks, let it cool for a few minutes then shred it with 3 forks.  At this point you can add a little more seasoning to taste.

4.) After you shred your chicken, cut your tortillas in half, and prepare a large baking sheet for assembly.

5.) On the long edge of the tortilla, spoon 2-3 spoonfuls of the chicken mixture, cheese, and spinach.  Roll it towards the curved edge.

6.) You should have 8-10 flautas.  Brush the top of each flauta with olive oil spread and put the sheet  in a 450 degree pre-heated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
