cook: 20 mins total: 50 mins prep: 30 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 servings


  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • ¼ cup chopped black olives
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground paprika
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups cooked shredded chicken
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • oil for frying, or as needed
  • toothpicks


    Step 1

    Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; stir flour into butter until smooth. Add onion to flour-butter mixture; cook and stir until onion is softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Mix black olives, lemon juice, oil, paprika, black pepper, and salt into onion mixture; cook and stir until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir chicken into mixture and remove skillet from heat and cover.

    Step 2

    Heat oil in a large, heavy saucepan or deep-fryer.

    Step 3

    Fill tortillas with chicken mixture. Roll tortilla around filling and secure with a toothpick.

    Step 4

    Fry the rolled tortillas, working in batches, in the hot oil until browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer fried tortillas to a paper towel-lined plate using a slotted spoon or tongs.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
