cooking instructions
Flautas:
Saute the onion and garlic in the oil until soft.
Mix the onion, chicken, coriander, cumin and sour cream.
Heat the oil and cook the tortillas, one at a time, for a few seconds to soften,
being careful they do not become too crisp.
Overlap two tortillas (cover one half of one with the other) and place on it a couple
of tablespoons of the filling.
Sprinkle with cheese, roll tightly, and secure with toothpicks.
Deep fry until crisp and browned, then drain.
Remove the toothpicks and serve with avocado sauce and salsa on the side for dipping.


Avocado Hot Sauce:
Place all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth
