  1. 1 tsp. Chili Powder
  2. 1⁄2 tsp. Salt
  3. 1⁄2 tsp. Ground Cumin
  4. 1⁄2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  5. 1 Lb Pulled Nino's Rotisserie Chicken Meat
  6. 12 Flour Tortillas, 6”
  7. - Vegetable Cooking Spray, as needed
  8. 1 cup Green Cabbage, shredded
  9. 1⁄4 cup Green Onion
  10. 1⁄2 cup Red Bell Pepper, Finely Julienned
  11. 1⁄4 cup Cilantro, fresh, chopped
  12. 1⁄4 cup Black Beans, cooked
  13. 1⁄2 cup Reduced Fat Monterey Jack Cheese
  14. - Low Fat Sour Cream (Optional)
  15. - Low Soduim Teriyaki Sauce (Optional)
  16. - Avocado, small slice (Optional)
  1. In a medium size saute pan over medium high heat, spray the pan with vegetable spray and saute the green onion, cabbage and bell pepper until softened. Reserve in a small bowl.
  2. Again spray the saute pan with vegetable spray, toss together the first 5 ingredients and saute in the pan 1 to 2 minutes or until heated through.
  3. Warm the flour tortillas in a microwave oven for a few seconds or toast them (lightly) on both sides over an electric or gas range burner.
  4. Place one flour tortilla on a flat working surface. At the bottom edge of each place approximately 1/4 cup of the seasoned chicken and 1 tablespoon each of the vegetable mixture, the shredded cheese and the black beans. Sprinkle with a good teaspoon of the chopped cilantro on top of the above ingredients and roll up into a "flute" (flauta). Repeat for the remaining.
  5. Optional ingredients can also be added to your flauta.
