I used a heart shaped cookie cutter and tossed these in 1/3c powdered sugar with a teaspoon (heaping) of cinnamon after they were done. These were easy, awesome and very tasty.

OMG! I use to live in AZ, and we would get these in our favorite restaurant. They are SO great! The trick is definitely having the oil hot enough, and rolling thin.

Wonderful, authentic recipe to those of us in the Southwestern U.S. Note: As stated cut these in 3 inch squares. Smaller squares do not rise properly!! I'd sugges 4-5 inch squares if you want to stuff them.

5 stars for flavor and ease of preparation. These puffed up perfectly. However, if you're going to stuff them, you must kneed the dough well. If you'd like them with powdered sugar, kneed them less and they will melt in your mouth. YUM. Thanks for sharing!

I first made sopapillas many years ago when a recipe for them was passed out in my 8th grade Spanish class. I don't have that recipe any more, but this one worked out perfectly. Recently, while dining out with my children, I ordered sopapillas from the menu, hoping that my kids would enjoy pinching off a corner and filling them with honey, as I used to do. Well, let me tell you, many restaurants aren't making sopapillas like they used to! At two different Mexican restaurants, we ordered sopapillas and were brought nothing more than a fried flour tortilla sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar! I'll be honest, I have no idea which version of sopapillas is authentic, but I was very disappointed not to be able to find the puffy little pillows of goodness in any restaurants! So I set out to make my own, and this is the recipe I chose. I halved the recipe, though, as I didn't need THAT many sopapillas--no matter how good they are! :)

Great recipe! I didn't have any problem with these puffing up. We ate them with cinnamon sugar and homemade vanilla ice cream. Thank you!!

Thank you for posting this. I grew up in New Mexico and have missed having them. Where I'm from they're drizzled with honey but I'm a fan of cinnamon sugar so that will be what I have:)
