Full recipe in video below!


  • 2 cans (12.5 oz each) chicken, drained & flaked

  • 3 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened

  • 1/3 cup salsa

  • 1 cup light shredded monterey jack cheese

  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 6 tortillas- 1 point each

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees or preheat air fryer.

  • Combine drained and flaked chicken, cream cheese, salsa, cheese, cumin, and garlic powder in a mixing bowl. Stir together until well combined.

  • Spread 3 tablespoons (a large spoonful) of chicken mixture onto a tortilla. Roll up tightly and place seam side down on a cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining tortillas. *If you use smaller tortillas then you won't need the full 3 tablespoons of filling, so adjust accordingly.

  • Spray the tops of the flautas with cooking spray. Don't soak them but you want them to have a decent coating of cooking spray so they will get really brown and crispy. I also like to sprinkle some kosher salt on top of the sprayed flautas, but this is totally optional.

  • Bake or air fry for 18-20 minutes or until they reach desired crispness that you want. Let cool for about 5-10 minutes before serving so the filling can cool and come together. Serve with dips of your choice (sour cream, salsa, guacamole).
