Spoon 3 tablespoons meat filling down the center of 1 tortilla.
Fold sides of tortilla over filling and roll it up.
Secure with a toothpick, if necessary.
Assemble only 2 or 3 at a time, because the tortilla will absorb liquid from the sauce.
Deep fry in hot oil (about 350°F) in a deep fryer 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
Lift from fat with a slotted spoon.
Drain well.
Keep in a warm oven and finish cooking the rest.
