  • 12 medium flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup cooked meat, shredded (tuna, turkey, chicken, etc.)
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 1 tomato, cubed
  • 1/4 cup parsley, washed and minced
  • 1/2 cup cooked corn
  • Salt to taste
  • Enough oil to fry
  • 12 toothpicks
  • Sour cream and salsa to garnish


    1. Heat the flour tortillas on both sides until quite warm. Keep them inside a clean kitchen cloth.
    2. Meanwhile, heat a deep, heavy iron pan with enough oil to fry.
    3. In a large bowl, mix the remaining ingredients draining any excess liquid. Fill each tortilla with about a tablespoon of the mixture and secure with a toothpick.
