Cheese Flautas


In a pan a littler larger than a corn tortilla, melt enough shortening or lard to fill it ¼ inch deep. With tongs dip a corn tortilla in the hot shortening or lard for a few seconds, just long enough so that it is soft and pliable. Remove and lay on a plate.

Sprinkle grated Longhorn or Monterey Jack cheese down the centre of the tortilla. Place 1 tablespoon tomato purée in the centre of the cheese. Lay a strip of green chilli about ½ inch wide on top of the cheese. Roll the tortilla up into a cigar-shape without pinching ends together. Fry until brown on both sides.

These are delicious served with guacamole and sour cream on the side.
