Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
A couple of things. If you aren't where to find the uncooked tortillas, look for them in the refrigerated section. Often times you will find them near the block and shredded cheeses. A tip to perfect frying is to make sure the oil is good and hot before you try to fry the flautas. That way they will begin cooking as soon as you drop them in, rather than soaking up the grease before the cooking starts.
