Chipotle Chicken Flauta Bites


My husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in Cancun. We toured ancient ruins, splashed in the ocean, soaked up the sun, and enjoyed Mexican cuisine. Not only did we bring home wonderful memories, but also ideas for delectable South of the border recipes including savory Chipotle Chicken Flauta Bites.
4 ounces  of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup  of roasted rotisserie chicken
1/2 cup  of Kraft Sandwich Shop Chipotle Mayo
1 cup of Sweet Habanero Paradise Pepper Sauce, divided
1 cup of fresh cilantro stems
4 six inch fresh Mex flour tortillas
1 Tbsp. of canola oil
1 cup of feta cheese, crumbled

  1. Spread 1 ounce of Philadelphia cream cheese over each tortilla leaving 1/2 inch around edges.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon of Kraft Chipotle Mayo over cream cheese and 3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese for each tortilla.
  3. Add 1/4 cup roasted rotisserie chicken down the center of each tortilla spread with cream cheese and chipotle mayo.
  4. Starting from one end, roll each tortilla into a tube shape.
  5. In a saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons oil and brown each side of flauta for 2 minutes or until golden brown (turn once.)
  6. Cut each flauta in half and spread 1/2 tablespoon of sweet habanero Paradise Pepper Sauce over the top of each flauta portion followed by 1 tablespoon feta cheese.
  7. For serving, squeeze some chipotle mayo on plate and set flauta on top. Serve with a sprig of fresh cilantro and a small condiment cup of sweet habanero pepper sauce for dipping.
  8. Note: I purchased my pre-cooked flour tortillas from my favorite fresh Mex restaurant.
