These flautas are a double whammy! We can’t decide what we like more, the tangy crema or the incredible creamy Mexican-spiced chicken! Luckily, both flavours are present in these baked tortillas. Enjoy!

Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Halve the tomatoes. Core, then cut the pepper into 1/4-inch strips. Zest, then juice the lime. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season the chicken all over with the Mexican Seasoning. Season with salt and pepper.


Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then the chicken. Sear, until chicken is golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer to a baking sheet. Sprinkle the sliced peppers around the chicken. Bake the chicken and peppers in the middle of the oven, until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.**


While chicken and peppers cook, stir together sour cream and lime zest in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Whisk together 1 tbsp lime juice, 2 tbsp oil and 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl all for 4 ppl) in a large bowl. Set aside.


When chicken is done, transfer to a cutting board. Thinly cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Add the chicken, peppers, half the cheese, tomato sauce and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl) to a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Season with pepper.


Turn oven to broil. Arrange tortillas on a clean surface. Divide chicken mixture down the middle of each tortilla. Roll tortillas tightly over filling, then arrange them on a foil-lined baking sheet, seam-side down. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Broil in the middle of the oven, until golden-brown, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on the flautas so they don't burn!)


Add spinach and tomatoes to the large bowl with the dressing. Toss to combine. Divide chicken flautas and spinach salad between plates. Dollop the crema over top.
