Lunes Latino: Churros

Here it is! The Latino recipe you've been waiting for. Mely brings you the official Rhodes version of a Mexican churro - and may we just say it's 'muy delicioso'! Add some hot chocolate...

Ingredients:

  • Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
  • 4 Cups canola oil
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Background:

Churros are the best known Mexican dessert food. In Mexico, you will find street vendors making and selling freshly made Churros. In the United States, they are hard to come by unless you go to a theme park, fair, or carnival.  Rhodes has made it easy to make your own churros and wow your neighbors. Just know they are meant to be eaten freshly made and warm. I have fond memories of warm churros with Mexican hot chocolate. YUM!!!

 

Directions:

Roll each roll into a thin 26-inch-long rope.

While holding an end with each hand, roll one end while keeping the other end still. Then bring your hands close together and you will find that the rope will roll and twist around itself. Now pinch together the ends.

Place sprayed plastic wrap on the counter and put the rolled churros on top of it.

You can let them sit and double in size or fry them now. I let mine double in size which gave me a much fluffier churro.

Now, heat the oil in a deep skillet to 350 degrees F.

Place each churro in the oil and fry about 3 minutes or until dark golden brown.

Grade:

Latino families are large and extended.  My Cousin’s, wife’s, sister’s, daughter is Marinitha Rodrigo Romero, a wonderful girl who volunteered to grade the recipe this week.  She is from Los Mochis, Sinaloa and wanted to see if these churros could compare to the street churros in her city. She absolutely loved the churros and gave them a 10 out of 10. These really do have the same flavors of a street churro with the added taste that only quality ingredients can give you… the quality Rhodes provides.

Love this recipe! I know my kids will too. Visiting you from A Bowl Full of Lemons.

Jenn, I am not kidding when I say that ever since I made these the first time, my husband has been asking for them every night we are home! They are so gooooooooood! I would even recommend making the dough roll shorter for added fluffiness and the authentic churro taste won't suffer as long as you cook it to that same color consistency.
