These were called “turkey tacos” when the recipe was given to me but I’d think of them as more like flautas. Whatever you call them, it was a great different way to use up the last of the turkey. Fried some corn tortillas just a minute or so on each side, then drained on paper towels. Shredded the last of the turkey. Grated some cheese (a mix of Jack and Cheddar or the Mexican blend they sell at the store if you’re buying the pre-shredded stuff). Put some turkey and cheese in each tortilla and roll them up, pin them together with a toothpick if needed, then fry them again until crispy. Lay in a baking pan, top with some cheese and heat in a low often (250) while you cook some rice and beans. Very simple. Very good.
