Chicken Flautas

I guess a good Happy Valentine's Day is in order. Hubby and I don't celebrate so it didn't really occur to me that PB would be into it.  But yesterday PB told me he wants to celebrate.  I am not going all out crazy, maybe a little heart shaped pancakes for breakfast and a new shirt.  This kid loves button down shirts and is going to be so excited to get a new one.  Hubby is away on business and is actually meeting up with his best friend tonight. I love that the 2 of them will be going out on Valentine's Day, cracks me up picturing them out with all the couples.  So I think maybe PB and I will go out for dinner tonight to celebrate, maybe even get dressed up.  Or maybe just stay home and eat some flautas...

This is my go to meal right now.  I have not been in the mood to be adventurous with dinner and this is the only new thing I have made lately.  If you can make a quesadilla, you are half way to making flautas.  I just pick up a rotisserie chicken and shred it.  Then I spread some chipotle salsa on a tortilla and sprinkle some cheese and add the shredded chicken.  Roll that tortilla up and poke a toothpick through it to hold it closed.  I brush a little olive oil on the outside and cook until it is nice and brown on all sides.  

I serve with rice and black beans, PB's favorite. I also put out some guac and plain greek yogurt for dipping.  If you are still eating fat free sour cream, you need to make the switch to greek yogurt.  It is really thick like real sour cream and it tastes almost the same.  The first time you eat it you will notice a small difference but then you are used to it.  I top my baked potato with tons of it and have stopped using butter.  I also use it to make all my dips now instead of sour cream.  AND there is no fat, tons of protein and very few calories. That dollop on my plate is about 11 calories, how ridiculous!!! Sorry, I got a little sidetracked. PB loves this meal, he likes quesadillas and this is just a little bit different and he loves dipping.  You have to try this!

If you celebrate, I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day.
