Add onion and cook until soft.
Add sauce and simmer slowly about 10 minutes, stirring constantly until liquid has evaporated.
Keep warm, or reheat.
Fry one tortilla at a time in about 1/2-inch of hot oil (365°), until it becomes soft (just a few seconds).
Then fold it in half and hold slightly open with tongs or two forks so that there is a space between the halves for filling to be added later.
Fry the tortilla until crisp and light brown, turning as necessary to cook all sides.
The process takes about 1 minute only.
Drain on paper towels.
Fill each tortilla with meat sauce, lettuce, and cheese; top with sauce.
