Sopapillas are a tasty Spanish treat to get your sweet fix. I remember learning how to make them in a middle school Spanish class, and since then this has been a favorite dessert. Getting homemade Sopapillas at a Mexican restaurant often will result in having the puffed pastries. They are a little more difficult to make that way at home, so here is an easy shortcut.

What you need:
  • Tortillas
  • Oil for frying
  • Cinnamon and Sugar (mixed)
  • Honey (optional)
  • Ice Cream (optional)
What you do:
  • Cut the tortillas into quarters, then cut the quarters in half - this makes 8 triangles per tortilla. Use as many tortillas as necessary for amount of people eating.
  • Cover the bottom of a frying pan with oil and have a plate ready with a paper towel covering it to soak some of the oil after cooking.
  • Add the tortilla triangles to the hot oil; flip. They will puff a little bit from the heat. Remove from oil and place on paper towel.
  • Sprinkle hot tortilla triangles with cinnamon and sugar.
  • After all tortilla triangles are cooked and covered with cinnamon and sugar, put on serving plates, drizzle with honey and add ice cream
