Yummy!! This is something a little different and very tasty! Next time I'm planning on Making a HUGE batch, frying them and flash freezing them on cookie sheets so my husband and kids can heat them up when they want too, or so I have a ready made appetizer for unexpected guests!!
This is such a fun recipe to make with the kids. You can make it as easy or as complicated as you want. For homemade crust try my Best Pizza Dough #123446 and Homemade Marinara Sauce #125116 or do it quick with the Rhoades frozen bread dough and a premade pizza sauce.
My mom has made these for as long as I can remember. I didn't know till I was married that sopapillas are usually a dessert. They take a little work and practice, but it is well worth it! If they are made correctly They should puff up with a hollow center. If yours don't puff up like they are suppose to just pile the filling on top like a Navajo taco!!
This is a very rich comfort food. It works great with a nice green salad.
Update: I neglected to list the cornmeal in the first posting- I think that will explain Shecancooks problem. Sorry for any negative results due to this.
I like to figure out restaurant recipes so I can make my favorites at home (we have a 20 month old girl need I say more!) This is a yummy version that makes great leftovers.
Recipe #123659 makes two 9 by 13 deep dish pans or you can make 1 pizza and a small batch of breadsticks.
