    Mommy Diva's Note:

    The puffed pillow of fried bread called the sopaipilla was thought to be “invented” in Albuquerque over 200 years ago. A good thing made even better when stuffed with a wonderful bean and green chile sauce mixture. Another lovely recipe I am dying to try from Bueno's website. Sopaipillas and chile? YUM, say it isnt so! Makes eight 12oz servings according to their website listing. :) Can't wait to find out - now off to locate the mix! ***PLEASE NOTE that the Bueno sopaipilla mix and green chile sauce are not recognized on Zaar, so please be sure that is what you are using, not just any baking mix or plain green chile. It will not be the same. ;)

      A friend used to live in New Mexico and made these for me once. I absolutely loved them! She didn't use a mix for the sopapilla, what she did was make a pie crust with 2 tsp of baking powder in it for lift. Cooked them in the Crisco and they puffed up fine! She said she altered the fillings to what she had available (meat, veg, bean). Thanks for reminding me of these!
