My kids just love to order this at Mexican restaurants so I couldn't resist saving this recipe. It is from Taste of Home.

"This is the best!" said my 3yo son. "Make this again next time....I love this stuff....Oh. My. Gosh," he added. My 11yo son said, "the honey's really good with it." I don't know what temperature I had the oil, but mine started coming undone after about 8 seconds. But wow these were good! Thank you for posting this! Reviewed for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #15.
