The celebration of the big soccer games starts June 12 and goes through July 13, a whole month of passion, emotions, and joy. In few words, we will be experiencing the fever of the soccer games and this calls for tasty food for fans.

With these flautas I am ready to cheer for El Tri my favorite team, you know I am always loyal to my country and los colores de la camiseta. I invite you to  join me in the kitchen to cook this recipe for Chicken Flautas Tricolor using the authentic flavors of the Crema Mexicana and the Ranchero Queso Fresco from who else but my favorite Mexican cheese Cacique Go Auténtico!

Season your chicken tenderloins and grill on a skillet when ready chop  and set aside. Using soft flour tortillas start building the flautas by stuffing with 1 or 2 teaspoons of the chopped grilled chicken and roll. Do this until you get 12 flautas and set them aside on a plate until ready to fry.
