My family gets so excited when I say I’m making flautas. They love to help make them and eat them! They’re perfect and never fall apart in little kid hands.

Gluten Free Chicken Flautas Recipe
method: Baked course: Main Course
cuisine: American diet: Gluten-Free
For the flautas:
- 2 lbs. chicken breast
- 2 tablespoons taco seasoning (if buying pre-packaged make sure it's gluten-free)
- non-stick olive oil spray
- tooth picks
- 2 cups chopped lettuce
- 2 medium chopped tomatoes
- 1/4 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1 cup guacamole
- 1 cup salsa
Add chicken to a medium sauce pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 15 - 20 minutes, or till no longer pink. When chicken is done, remove from water and shred in a large bowl. Add taco seasoning to meat and mix well.
Heat oven to 400°. Heat tortillas in microwave for 20 seconds on high. Take one tortilla and add a few tablespoons of shredded chicken (about 3 tablespoons) and tightly roll the flautas and secure with a toothpick. Place seam side down on a cookie sheet that has been coated with olive oil non-stick spray.
Continue rolling all 12 flautas and place all on the cookie sheet. Spray the tops of the flautas with non-stick olive oil spray and place and place in oven to bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve flautas over chopped lettuce and top with chopped tomatoes, onion, and cilantro. Drizzle with sour cream and serve with salsa and guacamole.
