Can we just talk for a second about how much I am looking forward to the Hunger Games movie? I feel embarrassed by it. Like admitting I am totally obsessed with Twilight (I’m not. Ok I am kinda am, ugh). WHY do I like all these movies? Is it a series thing? Star wars, Love. Harry Potter, I watch parts of movies at least once a week. Twilight, less so, I went through a phase with that. Why do I feel like people judge me because I love all that crap? Are you secretly judging me? Its ok if you are. I will try not to judge you for judging me. :) Do you ever wish there was like an Eternal Sunshine erase your memory pill you could buy at CVS so you could watch Star Wars and Harry Potter like it was your first time ever? I think about that a lot, and think about how awesome that would be. Please tell me some of you feel the same way as me!
Ok. Chicken Flautas. These make the perfect lunch AND make really good left overs. They are almost as good as cold pizza. I envision these are the perfect after school or after work snack. I hope you will think so too. These Quick & Easy Baked Chicken Flautas are so good!

Hi I love these and was wondering if I can make it in the morning and keep it in the fridge until dinner. I made the mixture like someone else suggested but was wondering if I could roll them up too or will that make it soggy? Thanks :)
Okay just found your blog on Pinterest (of course) and could not agree with you more on those movies!!! Umm Star Wars, love. Harry Potter, yes. Not Twilight because the acting made me cringe but Hunger Games, absolutely. I also watch superhero movies and Indiana Jones more than once… Also add any Jane Austen book made into a movie. Okay I could get really carried away talking about movies…
Just made these last week! They were really easy and I loved the flavor of them more than their fried counterparts.
Where did you get the roasted chicken?
Just finished making these tasty treats! I have a very happy belly, this is going into my recipe box!
Made these tonight for dinner, and they were delish! Thanks for the recipe!
These are SO good!!! They are officially in my weekly dinner menu :D
Can these be frozen and re-heated? I need to fill my freezer with quick and easy meals.
Question: how do you remove the milk from the corn? I’ve never heard of that before. Can’t wait to try these though! Your recipes are always amazing!
I loved the twilight books, but the movies (ok…I’ve only seen the first two, so I may need to give them a second chance) were overrated. And I hadn’t even heard of the Hunger Games untill the hype for the movie started. LOVED Harry Potter though, both the books and the movies!
Hi! This just means after you you cut the kernels off you should run the back of your knife along the cob to remove excess liquid..the “milk”..which has a lot of flavor!
Wow! Thank you for this!!! I made it over the weekend for my best friend’s engagement party and they were a huge hit! I got a littel creative with it and used sun dried tomotoe tortillas and added thinly sliced avacado to the inside of the roll. I’ve never been the one at a party to bring the favorite dish…I gotta tell ya, it was a good feeling!!! Thanks ladies!!!!
Just made the filling for these to have ready for dinner later in the week, and I’m having a hard time not eating it all right out of the bowl. Delicious!
I totally agree that it would be so nice to go back and see a movie, like Harry Potter or even Hugo, again for the first time. If you haven’t seen Hugo, I highly recommend. It had the same affect on me that seeing the first Harry Potter movie did. Made me feel like a kid again. :)
This looks lovely, the Baked Chicken Flautas. Cannot wait to try them when cool weather hits. Good football food. I will pin them under Game Day Food.
And yes, I do wish CVS sold an Eternal Sunshine Memory Erase pill, so people could forget and enjoy the sunshiney part of life, whenever. Everyone should have a sunshiney memory-filled life. Not just for rewatching Star Wars. Or Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Or Whatever.
Aah my husband and I had these with dinner last night, they were DELICIOUS!
I love chicken flautas. I’m totally sold on trying these with corn tortillas. Thanks!
Have you ever tried this recipe with corn tortillas?
Hi Katie! Yes! I actually love using corn tortillas. I usually fill them less and roll them tighter. I also brush them with a small amount of oil to make sure they crisp up in the oven. (using corn tortillas basically turn them into “baked taquitos”) They’re super good this way too!

Ohh! These look yummy and fairly easy (for me!) to make! And yeah, I’m not really all that excited about the Hunger Games but only because I haven’t read the book, I think. Not saying I won’t go see it though!
Looks absolutely divine! So simple! Saturday lunch here we go!
I got to go to an advanced screening of Hunger Games last night and it was awesome! I admittedly have not read the books so I wasn’t as crazy over the movie as my friends but I’m totally hooked and will read the entire series…this weekend. People, run don’t walk to the theater.
