Pollo Fundido Flautas

This was the easiest meal to throw together!

All it took was six simple ingredients to make one irresistible flauta!

Pollo Fundido is typically shredded chicken inside a flour tortilla, fried, then topped with delicious cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Simply delicious! I thought I might stick the cheddar and cream cheese on the inside, and instead of frying it, I would bake them into a sweet little roll.

Turned out A-MAZ-ING!!


I used rotisserie chicken for this recipe. I just grabbed a whole rotisserie chicken from the deli, skinned it, and pulled off and shredded the chicken. I store the chicken in my fridge and pull it out whenever I need to use it! One chicken can go a long way!












Start off by combining softened cream cheese, 1 1/2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup of diced green onion, and 1 tsp of crushed red pepper in a bowl.

Give it all a good mix…












Lay out a soft taco size flour tortilla and spread out 1 tablespoon of the mixture. Then lay another heaping tablespoon of shredded chicken on top.













Roll it up and place it on a greased baking sheet, seams facing down.













Spray the tops with cooking spray.

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, flip, and bake for another 7 minutes.

These are so mouth-watering and delicious!
You can’t stop at just one!

    I am so glad you found my blog! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! And I think they would be safe to eat at room temp, my kids always love leftovers in their lunch boxes! {beats a pb&j!}

    I have just recently found your blog and it's amazing, thank you so much for all of the new recipes! Can't wait to try them, I have a few on my menu for this week 🙂 Do you think these would be good at room temp, thinking of making them for my boys lunchboxes this week

    I haven't had flautas in such a long time! And I love how you baked yours. And I'm fantasizing about the guacamole in the picture almost as much as I am about the flautas.
