What's for Dinner Tonight? Chicken and Cheese Flautas

This is what I made for dinner tonight.
Chicken and Cheese Fluatas

10 flour taco shells
2 cups of pepper jack cheese (we used Colby jack)
1 1/2 cups shredded chicken ( I put about 1 lb of chicken breast in the slow cooker with a little taco seasoning and water, cooked all day, then shredded it - done the night before)
1 1/2 tsp cumin
Veg oil.

Mix the chicken, cheese, and cumin in a bowl. Heat up the tortilla shells in the microwave so they are easy to roll. Place about 1/4 cup of mixture on warm tortilla, roll up tightly, brush with oil. You may need to put a toothpick in them. Place in a medium heat skillet, turning to brown all the sides. I place seam side down first, then I don't need the toothpicks. If you have a deep fryer you could use one of those also.

Serve with guacamole, sour cream, and a little side salad.

Cost was about $6.51

Thank you so much for this recipe-we had it last night and it was delicious! I have a question about extra filling-would you recommend freezing it? We probably have enough left over to have the meal again without making a new batch. Thanks!

I would freeze the filling. That way you could pull out the meat anytime and make them. We are making them tonight.
