Directions

  1. Drain gravy from roast beef.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Fork shred the roast beef.
  4. Add just enough gravy to moisten. (Too soupy and it will splatter when frying).
  5. Heat tortillas (4 at a time) in microwave to soften. About 1 minute.
  6. Place approx 1 1/2 tablespoons of roast beef in center of tortilla (in a line).
  7. Fold tortilla over and roll to resemble a cigar.
  8. Fasten together with a toothpick(I found this makes it less likely to come undone when frying).
  9. Heat about 1/2 inch oil in a frying pan.
  10. To fry, place tortilla seam side down in hot oil.
  11. Fry till golden brown.
  12. Turn over and fry other side.
  13. Remove to a plate that has been cover with a paper towel to absorb oil.
  14. Remove toothpicks and sprinkle with salt.
  15. Serve with your favorite guacamole.
