Crunchy cinnamon-sugar snacks like my girls love to get at Taco Bell...yummy for snacks, dessert, slumber parties, football parties, or 'just cause.' Great with Mexican Hot Chocolate! :o)
- Combine cinnamon and sugar; set aside.
- Pour oil 2" deep in medium skillet; heat to 375.
- Cut each tortilla into 8 strips, each approx 1" wide.
- Fry 3-5 strips at a time until golden brown and crisp, turning once.
- Remove and drain on paper towels.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon mix while still warm.
- Serve immediately.
I had some leftover tortillas and stumbled upon this recipe. i just cut them to strips and dumped them in the deep fryer. they don't take long to crisp and brown so keep an eye on them. I like mine sweet so i put a cinnamon sugar mixture in a bowl, put the crispas in, and shook it up to coat them well.
This was a very good recipe and didn't make a mess like I thought it would. My whole family gobbled them up. I will be making this again soon!
now why didn't i think of this???? thanks winkki!! what a great snack, i found i had to IMMEDIATELY sprinkle with the sugar mixture to get it to stick well.....worked great! had the whole hive lined up and eating them as fast as i could whip them out LOL.
