Roll or fold it up and deep fry it. There are so many dishes where those are some of the final instructions.
The wrapper can be a variety of things such as egg roll wrappers (egg rolls), tortillas (taquitos and flautas), bread dough and even breaded meat. The filling can be anything under the sun from meats and seafood, to cheese and vegetables. You can even have chocolate filled deep-fried pastry bites.
The radishes were a curious ingredient.
I used my immersion blender to really get the avocado creamy.
The radishes are ready.
Filling the tortillas.
Lined up and ready for the fryer. They had to be held together by toothpicks.
I realize this could be anything in the picture. Take my word for it. It was the flautas.
A great little snack.
Prep Time: 0 hours 15 minutes | Cook Time: 0 hours 15 minutes | Makes: 4 servings | Difficulty: Easy
- 1 Hass avocado, halved and pitted
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 limes (1 halved, 1 cut into wedges)
- Kosher salt
- 6 radishes, thinly sliced
- 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
- 1 1/2 cups fresh salsa
- 16 corn tortillas
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro
Scoop the avocado into a blender. Add the sour cream and the juice of 1/2 lime and pulse until smooth. Season with salt.
Squeeze the remaining 1/2 lime over the radishes in a small bowl and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Toss the chicken with 3/4 cup salsa in a medium bowl.
Wrap the tortillas in paper towels and microwave until soft, about 45 seconds. Spoon the chicken mixture down the middle of the tortillas. Fold in the ends and roll up like a burrito; secure with toothpicks.
Heat 3/4 inch vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F. Fry the flautas, turning as needed, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove with tongs; drain on paper towels and remove the toothpicks. Serve with the avocado cream, radishes, cilantro, lime wedges and the remaining 3/4 cup salsa.
