For Flautas

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 cup corn canned and drained
  • 2 chicken breasts I used 2 chicken breasts from a roasted chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1 cup salsa store bought
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Tex Mex or Mexican cheese blend, I used Kraft
  • 10 flour tortillas 6 inch
  • 1/4 cup butter unsalted, melted

For Guacamole

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
  • In a medium size skillet heat the olive oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add corn to skillet and cook for another 2 minutes. Add shredded chicken, salsa and sour cream, stir and cook for about 3 more minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
  • Warm the tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds so that they're easier to roll. The chicken mixture should be enough to fill 10 tortillas.
  • Butter a 9x13 inch baking with some of the melted butter. Lay a tortilla flat and top with a couple tablespoons of the chicken mixture. Tightly roll up the tortilla and place it in the baking dish. Brush with melted butter. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until tortillas turn golden brown.
  • While the flautas are baking, make the guacamole. In a small bowl mash the avocado then add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
  • Serve guacamole over flautas and enjoy.
