Ingredients

8 ozs Ground beef
8 ozs Ground pork
1/4 C Fresh poblano pepper, chopped
1/2 C Onion, chopped
4 Garlic cloves, minced
1 T Snipped fresh oregano or 1 t dried oregano, crushed
1/2 t Cumin, ground

Dash ground cinnamon
Dash ground cloves
8 Low carb tortillas
Cooking oil for frying
Shredded lettuce
Salsa
Sour cream
Ripe avocado, seeded, peeled, and sliced

Directions

In a medium skillet cook meats, pepper, onion, and garlic until no pink remains. Drain fat.



Stir in oregano, cumin, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Cover; cook over low heat for 3 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; set aside.



Stack tortillas and wrap tightly in foil. Heat in a 350F degree oven for 10 minutes to soften.



Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the meat filling lengthwise down the center of a tortilla. Roll up tightly and secure with a toothpick.



IN a large skillet heat about 1/2 inch of oil over medium heat until a small piece of tortilla sizzles when dropped into the oil.



Fry 3 or 4 flautas at a time, about 3 minutes or until crisp and golden, turning once. Use tongs to lift flautas from the oil; tip carefully to allow fat to drain out of each end of the flautas.



Drain flautas on paper towels. keep warm in a 300F degree oven while frying remaining flautas.



To serve, remove toothpicks. Serve on shredded lettuce with salsa, sour cream and avocado slices.
