Flying Lotus - Flamagra Music Album Reviews

On Steven Ellison’s sixth album, his sweeping jazz-funk feels limitless. It sounds more like a sketchbook with FlyLo crafting each minute with great care and technical dexterity.
You’re Dead! was such a momentous piece of work, and such an inflection point in Flying Lotus’ career, that his earlier albums can now sound conventional by comparison. They were original and daring, but remained planted in soil tilled by pioneers like Dilla and Madlib. You’re Dead! offered a different vision: ecstatic, shapeshifting, deeply collaborative, and with a remarkable ability to mask its making. Where most beat music foregrounds surfaces and processes—the fingerprints on the pads of the MPC, the dust in the grooves of the wax—the 2014 album flowed like magical liquid with no discernable source. Where beat music is grounded, You’re Dead! was pure vapor, a lungful of atoms returned swirling into the universe.

Cheesy Chicken Flautas are a super simple recipe that you

Key to Success #1 – Make Flavorful Chicken
I like to make Salsa Chicken in the Instant Pot. Salsa Chicken is a combination of boneless skinless chicken breasts and salsa that is pressure cooked until it’s tender and perfect for shredding.

You can also make Salsa Chicken in a slow cooker. Or you can make Salsa Chicken using a sous vide cooker. I actually made Salsa Chicken sous vide and it turned out great. I’ll be sharing that recipe with you very soon.

If you already have some shredded chicken, you can use that in this recipe and just add a half cup of you favorite type of salsa, either homemade or store bought.

Key to Success #2 – Make Them Cheesy
Cream cheese is an important cornerstone of these Cheesy Chicken Flautas. The cream cheese along with the fiesta blend cheese adds a great creaminess and lots of flavor.

Fiesta blend cheese is usually a combination of Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Queso Quesadilla, and Asadero cheeses. You can use just Monterey Jack or just cheddar if you’d prefer. Really, just about any cheese you prefer will work in this recipe.

Key to Success #3 – Use Burrito-sized Tortillas
The amount of flautas made by this recipe and the amount of chicken to put into each tortilla is based on using a burrito-sized tortilla. You’ll need to adjust the amount of filling if you use a different sized tortilla.

With burrito-sized tortillas, you’ll roll the tortilla up around the chicken mixture then cut each one in half. You’ll use 16 tortillas and you’ll end up with 32 flautas.

Key to Success #4 – Spray with Cooking Spray Before Baking
As you roll up and cut the flautas, line them up on a rimmed baking sheet. I used a half-sheet pan and 36 flautas filled up about 1 1/3 pans.

Next, lightly spray the flautas with non-stick cooking spray. This little bit of oil will help the flautas get crisp as they are baked. You could also brush the flautas with a little olive oil.

Key to Success #5 – Make More … or Less
This recipe can easily be doubled if you need to make more flautas. Or you can half the recipe if you need less flautas.

These Cheesy Chicken Flautas make great leftovers too. They can be reheated in the oven, in the microwave or in the air fryer.

Make It a Party
Cheesy Chicken Flautas are a great dish to take to a party. You can make a pretty Pull-Apart Chicken Flauta Ring by arranging the chicken flautas in a ring and adding more shredded cheese between the layers.

Tip! Place a small bowl in the center of the baking pan and arrange the flautas in a circle around it. Remove the bowl before baking.

The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.
