Lynnda's Story

These are so good. I don't usually fry the tortillas to make the baskets, but drape them over forms and bake them in the oven.

Ingredients

4 flour tortillas, 8 inch size
2 cups refried beans
2 cups shredded beef or chicken
1 cup salsa
oil for deep frying
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 avocado, sliced

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat 2 cups oil in deep 1 1/2 quart pot. Using tongs, put tortilla over top of pot and push into hot oil with a metal ladle so that sides of tortilla turn up to form a basket. Fry about 1 minute til golden and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat process with each tortilla.
2
Fill basket with layers of warm beans, shredded meat mixture, lettuce and cheese. Top with sour cream, avocado and salsa.
