Looks delicious. How done was the duck cooked? How long in the grease?

It can't be more than a few minutes, I bet no more than 5.

Yeah this is about right. I did not time it, so I'm not real sure. But I would get oil hot, 380, and pull off after 2 minutes or when outside looks done. Probably hard to under cook it.

My first batch, oil was too hot, like 400 or higher. I threw on aways because I'm ADD and don't have patience... So , like 1 minute it was done on outside, I pulled off, threw the rest on, and oil cooled down (not sure of temp), and the oil seemed too low. I threw the first batch back in a minute or 2, cuz I figured not cooked enough. The darker ones was the first batch, they were the best. The other batch, not as good, probably too low of heat and too long in oil.

Those look really good. A small tip for next time.....flautas are usually made with a filling in which the meat has been pre-cooked then shredded. That way you don't have to 'cook' the flautas long enough to actually cook the filling but only long enough to fry the tortillas, melt the cheese, and warm the filling.

But you have inspired me to set aside some duck to make up a batch.

I talked to my wife about them, she was more worried about over cooking the meat. Some trial and error will need to take place to really perfect this.

Yea, thats why they typically do the shredded route. It is difficult to match the cooking times of a raw piece of meat on the inside to the thin tortilla on the outside. Agree on the trial and error to get everything just right but they do look really good and worth a few attempts to get them how you want them.

I am way over thinking this but.... I think you could cook all your duck ahead of time to rare (sous vide/smoker) then mix with your filling, then do your fry as not to over cook the duck but still fry the tortilla.

But looking forward to tweaking this a bit and hearing how others have adapted this to their tastes as well. Looks like a great use for some duck and a way to get others interested in the meat.

I am thinking about a creamy tomatillo sauce and a roasted tomatillo sauce to serve with them.

That makes perfect sense for pork or chicken, because you need to make sure it is cooked well done. But not duck. You definitely do not want to precook the duck. It is very hard to under cook the duck.

Agreed. Would not want to cook duck twice. FWIW, I made them last weekend and turned out perfect just as OP described in first post.

Just avocado, salt and lime. I used to bartend at a Mexican food resturant and would help in the kitchen every now and then, I would make 5 gal buckets of guacamole, and that is how they made it, but with lemons because they had more juice, you cant tell the difference.

JMO, guacamole best this way, try it. People over complicate it.

Exactly, I want to taste a hint of lime in my guac, hate when I can taste onion.
