The best Mexican dishes are definitely “los antojitos”, which include tostadas, empanadas, huaraches, and sopes to mention a few, and of course the famous flautas! In this recipe I will show you how to make this delicious meal and hopefully you will be able to enjoy a small piece of Mexico too.
Flautas are originally from Sinaloa, which is a state in northern Mexico, and that is why their popularity has spread to many parts of the United States. They consist of a corn tortilla, filled with different ingredients such as the shredded chicken in this recipe, but it can also include beef or mashed potatoes, and then rolled up and fried. You can choose whichever variety you want when you try this!
The thing that I love about this dish is the fresh flavors of the pico de gallo, or salsa fresca as they call it in some places. The other toppings are cheese, chopped lettuce, cream and, if you like avocado, you can even add guacamole.
Make sure to watch them carefully when frying them. The length of time that you leave it in the oil depends on the texture that you prefer. For example, in my house, my husband likes them a little bit softer, but I love them extra crispy! If you are brave, you can add some chopped jalapeno too.
This recipe, without a doubt, brings back so many memories from my youth and how it was always my favorite meal to come home and eat after school. I am so proud of my Mexican roots and especially the food! I invite you to make these flautas and let me know how they turn out!
