Ingredients :

1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

Directions:

Preheat the oven to the warm setting or about 200 degrees F.
Fill a large saucepan with about ¾ inch oil. Heat over medium heat to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine chicken, cheese, salsa, diced chiles, garlic salt and pepper.
Working with 4 tortillas at a time, spread a heaping spoonful of chicken filling along the middle of each tortilla. Roll the tortillas tightly around the filling and secure each one with a toothpick.
Using tongs, hold each flauta in hot oil until firm, then release to continue cooking. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes, then remove to a paper towel–lined plate and immediately season with salt.
