#1. Chicken flautas

Chicken flautas

This easy chicken recipe comes courtesy of Delish and consists of shredded chicken wrapped in flour tortillas and then pan-fried. According to Delish, “flautas are somewhere between taquitos and chimichangas.” 


  • 2 cups shredded, cooked chicken
  • 1/4 cup canned, chopped green chiles
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1 cup queso blanco (or crumbled feta)
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt (omit if the chicken is already seasoned)
  • 2 tsp. hot sauce, optional
  • 10 7″ flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup vegetable, canola, or other neutral oil
  • For serving: pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole


  • In a large bowl, combine chicken, chiles, cheese, salt, and hot sauce (if using).
  • Lay 1 tortilla down on a work surface. Spread a heaping 1/4 cup of the chicken mixture onto the bottom third of the tortilla. Roll up tightly and place seam side down on a plate. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
  • In a 10” skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches between 350-375 degrees F.
  • Add 3 of the flautas to the oil, seam side down. Cook, turning every 30 to 60 seconds, until golden all over, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Transfer flautas to a large paper towel-lined plate or baking sheet. Repeat with remaining flautas.
  • Serve immediately with pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole.

This flavorful soup is your companion on cold days as well as a base for other meals like chicken and rice casserole.

  • Water
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Herbes de Provence
  • Bay leaves
  • Cloves
  • Black peppercorns
  • Salt
  • Soy sauce


  • Add the above ingredients into a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to low and let it simmer (uncovered) for about 2 1/2 hours.
  • Carefully remove the chicken from the broth, debone and return the bones to the stock pot.
  • Let the broth cook till ready. This is usually when it has reduced by 1/3 or 1/2.
  • After it’s done cooking, pour the broth through a strainer to separate the liquid from the other ingredients.
  • Refrigerate the broth overnight and remove surface fat the next day.
  • Now you can use the homemade chicken broth, or you can freeze it and save it for later. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days, and in the freezer for about 3 months.
