So are any of you as crazy about Pinterest as I am? Being the food lover I am, I’m constantly on the hunt for new recipes to try and Pinterest is my go to for pinning new meal ideas. A few nights ago I decided to give on of the recipes on my Pinterest board a try, Chicken Flautas!
They turned out as delicious as they look!
* Boneless, Skineless Chicken Breasts (About 4)
* Baby Spinach
* Chicken Stock
* Burrito size tortillas (About 4-5)
* Mexican Blend Cheese
* Seasoning of Choice
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.
Here is the end product and the best part about it is that they are low in calories! They were yummy!
