Chicken Flautas:
2 large chicken breasts with skin and bone
24 corn tortillas
vegetable oil for frying

Creamy Spicy Avocado Sauce:
2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup yellow onion, cut into pieces
½ a lemons juice
6 tablespoons cilantro
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 clove garlic
2 tablespoons water
kosher salt to taste

For serving:
shredded lettuce, pico de gaillo, cojita cheese and sour cream and hot sauce

Creamy Spicy Avocado Sauce:

*Combine the ingredients in the jar of a blender and puree until it is really smooth

*Season to taste with kosher salt. Chill until ready to use


*Fill a large pot with salted water and add the chicken breasts

*Boil the chicken breasts until they are cooked through, about 20 minutes

*Remove the chicken and let it cool until you can handle it comfortably

*Remove the skin and bones and shred the meat with a fork

*Set it aside and use the chicken broth for something else

*Now roll 2 tablespoons of chicken into a corn tortilla until it is a tight “cigar”

*Use a toothpick to secure the cigar

*When they are all rolled up, prepare the oil

*In a large heavy skillet, heat ¼ inch of oil over medium heat

*Add the flautas 4-5 at a time and cook them until they are golden brown and crispy on all sides, turning them as they cook

*Continue to cook the rest of the flautas, adding more oil as needed

*Remove the toothpicks after you have fried

*Serve the flautas hot on a platter with a bowl of avocado sauce for dipping, or over a bed of shredded lettuce with cotija, salsa and sour cream and the avocado sauce over the top
