Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for frying the tortillas

1 1/2 cups peeled and finely chopped russet potatoes (about 1 russet potato)

1/4 cup finely chopped onions

6 ounces raw pork chorizo, removed from casing

10 corn tortillas 

1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded, for serving 

Crumbled queso fresco, for serving

Mexican crema, for serving 

Store-bought salsa, for serving

Directions

Special equipment:
10 toothpicks
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
