Three-ingredient Shredded Chicken Flautas made simply using flour tortillas, shredded chicken, and Mexican cheese; served with homemade avocado cream sauce.


Units Scale

For the Flauntas:

For the Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce:

  • 2 medium avocados
  • 1 tbsp pico de gallo
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp cilantro flakes
  • 1 tbsp parsley flakes
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Dash red cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Begin by following the Instant Pot (paid link) Whole Roasted Chicken recipe instructions. Shred the chicken into pieces.
  2. Layer the flour tortilla with chicken and top off with shredded cheese. Roll each shell as tight as possible and use a toothpick to keep the ingredients in place.
  3. Heat a cooking pan to medium heat and coat the pan with cooking oil. First, remove the toothpick and fry on the folded side to seal the ingredients. Cook for 2 -3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Set to the side.
  4. For the Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce, remove the shell and seed from the avocados. Place avocado in a bowl. Add pico de gallo, sour cream, lemon juice, cilantro flakes, parsley flakes, paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, red cayenne pepper, and sea salt into the bowl. Mix until smooth.
