  • Shortening or lard
  • Corn tortillas
  • Longhorn or Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • Tomato puree
  • Green chile strips


  1. In a pan a littler larger than a corn tortilla, melt enough shortening or lard to fill it 1/4 inch deep. With tongs dip a corn tortilla in the hot shortening or lard for a few seconds, just long enough so that it is soft and pliable. Remove and lay on a plate.
  2. Sprinkle grated Longhorn or Monterey Jack cheese down the center of the tortilla.
  3. Place 1 tablespoon tomato puree in the center of the cheese.
  4. Lay a strip of green chile about 1/2 inch wide on top of the cheese.
  5. Roll the tortilla up into a cigar-shape without pinching ends together.
  6. Fry until brown on both sides.
