Baked Cream Cheese Chicken Flautas

What a long day. Our dryer broke almost two weeks ago and it still has yet to get fixed. My mom and sister have been moving so we're been helping get them packed. With Kitty moving my husband and I have had the pleasure of temporarily adopting her kitten Q. With all that and a bunch of other stuff, I've been exhausted - and it's only Tuesday. Ugh.

Anyway, when I went to get cream cheese for this week's tasty treat (Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars)  it was on sale. So naturally I loaded up. When I started meal planning for the week last night I figured I might as well figure out something to make with it before it went bad ... or turned into more cheesecake which was much more likely to happen this week. With my penchant for Mexican food, it's only natural that I decided on a Mexican dish. I thought I would try a baked flauta to at least have the appearance of a healthy dish. And healthy or not, it was amazing.

Try it tonight and watch your family be amazed by such a simple dinner.
