My Copycat of Chicken Flautas from Costco

B loooooves to stop at every demonstrator in Costco and try the food samples, just like his grandpa.  Last month, we tasted, and then bought,  Don Miguel’s Chicken Flautas – delicious!  However, they were all gone in 2 meals.  B asked if we could go buy some more so, of course, I looked at the ingredients and thought, “Pshaw!  I can make these!”  Last week, I happened to have all the ingredients on hand, so I made some tortillas, dumped a bunch of stuff in a skillet to mix and heat, rolled it up in my tortillas and we all loved it!  Here’s what I did (Mind you, I did not follow Don Miguel’s ingredients list exactly.  As always, I made it my own.):

I heated some canola oil in a skillet, added a can of drained and rinsed black beans and mashed them with a potato masher. Once they were hot and sizzling, I added diced meat I’d picked off a leftover rotisserie chicken and some of my homemade salsa. Stirred and heated until it was bubbly.

This was all the frozen corn I had, so I rinsed it under warm water in a colander, drained and added it to the pan.

While the corn was warming up in the pan, I shredded a bunch of Colby Jack cheese and added that to the pan, as well. Kept stirring until the cheese was melted and mixed throughout. I tasted it and it was SO GOOD I didn’t even want to bother with the tortillas! No seasonings were added because there was so much flavor in the mix already from the rotisserie chicken and homemade salsa.

I could only fit six, filled tortillas on the pan, so I stopped there and popped them in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.  One was enough for each of us for dinner!  The remaining filled tortillas went into the freezer to pull out for future lunches.  The rest of the filling I heated up the next day all by itself and ate it in a bowl.  It was DEELISH!
