Cheesy Baked Chicken Flautas with Greek Yogurt Guacamole Dip

I found this recipe on pinterest and made it not even knowing what chicken flautas were. In case you're wondering, its a mexican dish (duh!) usually served fried...oh and they are delicious. My eyes saw a creamy cheesy filling wrapped in a tortilla and guacamole and I was like DONE and DONE.  I decided to bake them instead of frying them to make them a little healthier. I also swapped out sour cream for greek yogurt like I normally do. Believe me, you can not tell the difference. Its just as creamy and tasty! I also used greek yogurt in the guacamole. My friend Lindsey made this guacamole last weekend and I became obsessed. I figured the guacamole would be perfect to have with the flautas and it was!!
Guacamole Ingredients:
  • 4 avocados
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 jalapenos, diced with the seeds removed
  • 2 big spoonfuls of plain greek yogurt (you're welcome for the exact measurement!)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 lime
Guacamole Recipe:
  • Mix avocados and greek yogurt together until smooth. 
  • Add tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, and jalapenos. 
  • Add lime juice from one lime -this will help prevent the avocados from browning. 
  • Add salt and pepper as needed.

 Chicken Flautas Ingredients:
  • 16 tortillas
  • 3 chicken breasts, shredded 
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 8 oz bag of taco shredded cheese
  • 1 15 oz can of corn
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • olive oil
*Note..this is going to make enough for two 9x13 baking dishes. You can easily make one for dinner and freeze the other!

Chicken Flautas Recipe:
  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees
  • Heat a skillet with olive oil. Add onion and garlic. Cook until softened. Add corn and cook for another 2 minutes. Then, add shredded chicken, salsa, sour cream, and cheese. Stir and cook until combined and cheese is melted. (This will only take a 3-4 minutes.)
  • Spray two 9x13 baking dishes with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place some filling in each tortilla. Tightly roll the tortilla and place in the baking dish. 
  • Bake for about 15 minutes.
