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.
