Chicken Flautas with Black Beans
  • 6 10  inches  flour tortillas
  • 1/2  cup  chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1  clove garlic, minced
  • 1  teaspoon  cooking oil
  • 2  cups  shredded cooked chicken
  • 1  cup  canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2  cup  bottled salsa
  • 1/2  cup  shredded Mexican cheese blend (2 ozs.)
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh cilantro or oregano
  •  Cooking oil for frying
  • 3  cups  shredded lettuce
  •  Purchased guacamole (optional)
  •  Bottled salsa (optional)
  •  Dairy sour cream (optional)
  •  Cilantro leaves (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wrap tortillas tightly in foil. Heat in oven about 10 minutes or until heated through.

2. Meanwhile, for filling, in a large saucepan, cook onion and garlic in the 1 teaspoon hot oil until tender. Stir in chicken, black beans, 1/2 cup bottled salsa, the cheese, and 2 tablespoons cilantro.

3. For each flauta, spoon about 1/2 cup filling across each warm tortilla about 1-1/2 inches from one edge. Roll up tortillas as tightly as possible. Secure with wooden toothpicks.

4. In a very large, deep skillet, heat 1-1/2 inches of cooking oil to 365 degrees F. Fry flautas, two at a time, for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp and golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Keep fried flautas warm in a 300 degrees F oven while frying remaining flautas.

5. To serve, remove toothpicks. Halve flautas crosswise. If desired, serve with guacamole, salsa, sour cream, and cilantro.
