I realized last night as I made these delectable flautas that food is a very important part of my happiness, or at least the happiness of my stomach. It's a winner with everyone else too.
Saute in a pan with 2 T shortening:
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
Combine and stir in:
1 T cornstarch
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
1/2 c. chicken broth
2 1/4 c. chicken, cooked and chopped
1 4 oz. can chopped green chilies
Cook until thickened and remove from heat.
Spoon mixture into center of flour tortilla, roll up and fry in 1/4" hot oil. Cook until lightly browned and crisp.
These are best served while hot. Enjoy them with guacamole, salsa or sour cream.
