Process in a food processor or blender until pureed. transfer to a small bowl; cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • Remove meat from saucepan. Strain liquid, reserving onion mixture. When meat is cool enough to handle, shred with two forks. Combine onion mixture and meat; divide between tortillas. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.
  • In an electric skillet or deep fat fryer, heat oil to 375. Cook flautas until golden brown, turning to cook all sides. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the salsa verde.
