Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 jalapenos
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 to 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 36 corn tortillas
Directions

In a pot, cover chicken with water. Add onion, jalapenos, and one teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil and simmer until tender, about 1 hour. Remove meat from pot and cool. Pull chicken apart into small pieces. Chicken should be continuously pulled apart until string-like consistency. In a deep pan, heat the oil to about 375 to 400 degrees F. Dip corn tortillas into hot oil for 1/2 a second or until tortilla is soft. Lay the shredded chicken in the middle of the corn tortillas. Add enough meat to make sure you taste the flavor of the meat and the corn tortilla. Roll the tortilla up and put toothpick through the middle of the flauta to hold in place. Once rolled, deep fry each flauta in the oil already heated (used to soften the corn tortillas) until corn tortillas turn to a golden brown or to your preference. Allow cooling off time. Remove toothpicks and serve 6 flautas on a plate with salsa or guacamole.
