Chicken Enchilada Flautas; yeah that sounds right. It is an appropriate name for something that isn’t quite what it is, and is really just what I do with leftover chicken. This is a dinner makeover, waste-not kind of recipe that takes about 20 minutes to prepare and is barely a recipe. Sounds like my kind of Friday.
“Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral.” Frank Lloyd Wright
