  • 4Servings


  • Vegetable oil, for frying (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken, such as a store-bought rotisserie chicken
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup salsa verde
  • Salt
  • 16 soft corn tortillas (6-inch)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped jicama (or chopped radishes)
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 large tomato, cored and chopped


In a large, deep skillet, heat 1 inch of oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the chicken, cheese, salsa and 1/2 tsp. salt.

Wrap tortillas in a towel; microwave until warm, about 1 minute. Spoon a scant 1/4 cup chicken filling onto 1 tortilla; roll up snugly. Repeat with remaining chicken filling and tortillas. Fry the flautas seam sides down, turning once, until golden, about 5 minutes; drain on paper towels.

In a bowl, whisk 1/3 cup sour cream with the lime juice; season with salt. Toss in the remaining ingredients. Serve the flautas with the salad and the remaining sour cream, for dipping.
