Step 1

In a deep skillet, saute onions in butter 10 minutes. Remove to a mixing bowl.

Step 2

Wipe skillet clean and add enough oil to approximately 1 inch deep. Heat oil over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking.

Step 3

While oil is heating, combine all ingredients except flour tortillas in the mixing bowl. Lay out the four tortillas and portion 1/4 of the mixture onto each tortilla. Wrap burrito style with seam side down.

Step 4

When oil is ready, fry 2 burritos, seam side down, until lightly browned on undersides (1 to 2 minutes). Turn over with tongs and fry until golden (1 to 2 minutes). Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly. Fry the remaining 2 burritos as you did the first two.

Step 5

Serve immediately.
