From 'Comida Mexicana' by Rosa Cienfuegos
Flautas A twist on the traditional taco, as this one is deep-fried! An ideal recipe for using left-over meats from the night before; this version uses Lamb Barbacoa

  1. Warm the tortillas in a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan to 180°C.
  3. Meanwhile, divide the barbacoa evenly among the warm tortillas, then roll them up and secure with toothpicks.
  4. Working in batches, deep-fry the flautas for 4-5 minutes, until crispy on both sides. Transfer to a paper towel, standing upright to drain the excess oil.
  5. Remove the toothpicks and serve the flautas in pairs, topped with the lettuce, tomato, sour cream, avocado, cheese, and salsa.
