Churritos
(sweet tortilla fritters)

Directions:

Churritos can be served on their own as sweet fritters. They are also great with vanilla ice cream. If you do not want to eat fried food you can bake these treats in the oven. 

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the tortillas into 1/2 inch strips. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake in oven until crunchy. 

To Fry: Fry the tortillas in heated oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry tortillas until golden on both sides. Place cooked tortillas on paper towels. Repeat until all are fried. Sprinkle the tortillas with cinnamon and sugar. Serve while still hot.
