Flautas

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.

Chicken Flautas

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

Mix well.

Add:
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.
