Easy Chicken Flautas
Chicken flautas, also known as rolled tacos, are tortillas filled with seasoned chicken and deep-fried for a tasty Mexican-inspired appetizer or meal.
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter; add the flour and stir until well combined.
Add the onion and cook and stir for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the onion softens.
Lemon juice and black olives are mixed.
Add 1 tablespoon oil, paprika, black pepper, and salt to the onion mixture; stir and cook for 2 minutes, or until heated through.
Add chicken to the mixture; turn off the heat and cover the skillet.
Over medium-high heat, warm the oil in a sizable, heavy saucepan or deep fryer.
Wrap up the chicken mixture in tortillas.
Wrap a toothpick around the tortilla as you roll it around the filling.
Working in batches, brown rolled tortillas for about 2 minutes in hot oil.
Transfer the warm tortillas to a plate lined with paper towels using a slotted spoon or tongs.
