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).
