Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: 10 toothpicks

In a large, heavy saute pan, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Saute the potatoes and onions until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the chorizo and cook until crisp, browned and fully cooked, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl and let cool.

Heat the tortillas directly on a gas burner just until they are soft and pliable, about 10 seconds per side. Place 2 tablespoons of the chorizo and potato mixture on each and roll to from a rolled taco. Stick each roll with a toothpick to hold.

In a separate heavy saute pan, heat enough oil for frying the tacos. When the oil it hot, add the rolled tacos in batches and fry on all sides until golden, about 4 minutes.

Cut the flautas in half and serve on a large platter topped with lettuce and crumbled queso fresco. Drizzle with Mexican crema and serve with salsa.
