Combine the chicken, cheese and cumin in a small bowl. Place about 1/4 of the chicken mixture on each tortilla. Top with 1 Tbs. salsa. Roll tightly and secure with a toothpick. Brush with oil.  Alternately, put the oil in the skillet and sort of shallow/deep fry the flautas. Cook flautas over medium heat in a 10-inch skillet 4-6 minutes, turning occasionally until filling is hot and tortillas are toasted. Remove toothpicks and serve with guacamole and sour cream if desired.
