  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Mix together chicken, cream of chicken soup, diced green chile peppers, 1 tsp. chipotle powder, cumin, and coriander in a medium size saucepan. Heat over medium heat until hot. Remove from heat.
  3. Place about 3 tablespoons of the chicken filling along the edge of a tortilla. Roll the tortilla up more tight than loose. Put a toothpick through the middle of the flauta to hold in place. Place on a sprayed large baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  4. In a small bowl mix together the canola oil and remaining ground chipotle pepper.
  5. Lightly brush the flautas with the oil mixture. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool.
  6. Remove toothpicks, slice each flautas on the diagonal. Transfer on your favorite fiesta platter, sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro, serve with low fat sour cream and salsa.

Very tasty and easy recipe to build on. Personally I like a lot of flavor so the first time I made this as written (using chipotle powder in the filling since it wasn't very clear on the ingredients list) and thought it was good, but could be better. The next time I added a half can of rinsed and drained black beans, a chipotle pepper in adobo (diced) that I had left over from something else and about a cup of shredded "Mexican blend" cheese into the filling. It was to die for! I also got a few more flautas out of it that way, lol. Served it up with some yellow rice that I added a bit of diced red pepper, onion and jalapeño to and a guacamole salad as well. Don't get me wrong, the original recipe was tasty! It just needed a bit more pizzazz for me. Try it once by the book and then see what you think would make it suit you even better. Also, if you're not a fan of chipotle use regular chili powder instead.

These were really good! I used at least 3 cups of shredded chicken (1.4 lbs) and added about 3 Tablespoons of shredded cheese in each flautist. The chipotle seasoning on top added an interesting flavor. Glad I found the recipe!
