Rolled tacos; these are the best. I learned how to make them and my husband loved them.
- 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
- 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.
Heat oil in a large, heavy saucepan or deep-fryer.
Fill tortillas with chicken mixture. Roll tortilla around filling and secure with a toothpick.
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.
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.
