I love Mexican food–and crispy chicken flautas are one of my favorite items to order!

Since I love all things homemade, I decided it was high time that I tried to make this chicken flautas recipe. Rather than fry them, I decided to brush them lightly with butter and bake them instead.

Would you believe this recipe was just as good as fried flautas? This was so easy and amazing we have agreed to add these into our menu more often!
