Flautas
Ingredients
12
ounces lean ground beef or pork
1/4
cup chopped fresh poblano pepper or Anaheim pepper
1/2
2
cloves garlic, minced
1
tablespoon snipped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2
teaspoon ground cumin
1/4
teaspoon salt
 
Dash ground cinnamon
 
Dash ground cloves
8
8 inches flour tortillas
 
Cooking oil for frying
 
Shredded lettuce
 
Salsa
 
Dairy sour cream
1
ripe avocado, seeded, peeled and sliced
Directions
  1. For filling, in a medium skillet cook meat, pepper, onion, and garlic until no pink remains. Drain fat. Stir in oregano, cumin, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Cover; cook over low heat for 3 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; set aside. Meanwhile, stack tortillas and wrap tightly in foil. Heat in a 350 degree F oven for 10 minutes to soften.
  2. For each flauta, spoon about 2 tablespoons of the meat filling lengthwise down the center of tortilla. Roll up lightly; secure with a wooden toothpick.
  3. In a large skillet heat about 1/2 inch of oil over medium-high heat until a small piece of tortilla or bread sizzles when dropped into oil. Fry 3 or 4 flautas at a time, about 3 minutes or until crisp and golden, turning once. Use tongs to lift flautas from oil; tip carefully to allow fat to drain out of each end.
  4. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven while frying remaining flautas. To serve, remove toothpicks. Serve on shredded lettuce with salsa, sour cream, and avocado slices. Makes 4 servings.
