Taco Bell Style Cinnamon Twists

Taco Bell Style Cinnamon Twists created by alenafoodphoto

Copycat recipe of Taco Bell Cinnamon Twists. These are not twisted because it is very difficult to keep the twist in the dough while cooking. It's easy when done in the factory like Taco Bell's. Otherwise, these are very tasty. Your choice of cinnamon sugar (Taco Bell) or powdered sugar (Non-Taco Bell).

ingredients

directions

  • Combine first set of ingredients, adding each ingredient as listed, and enough flour so that the dough is no longer sticky, but still very soft.
  • Using a floured working surface, roll small portions of dough at a time to paper-thin. Cut into 2 x 5-inch strips, and arrange in single layer on oiled cookie sheets.
  • In a deep, heavy saucepan or deep fryer, bring oil (at least 3 inches deep) to 400°F Carefully add a few strips to the oil. They'll fall to the bottom but will surface as they brown (about 2 minutes).
  • Lift out with tongs and drop into brown grocery bag containing seasoning mix. Gently shake then remove coated strips. Serve immediately.

    Love that I can make them at home.

    They're actually made of a Mexican ingredient called duro pellets that puff up perfectly ( there are different kinds not all are twists)

    I haven't actually made this recipe and I'm sure its good but this isn't the recipe. My daughter works in the kitchen at a Taco Bell and their recipe is so easy it'll surprise you. All you need is: Rice based twisted noodles Cinnamon Sugar Oil for frying (deep fryer works best) Metal straining spoon Paper towels Heat the oil Drop no more than handful of noodles into hot oil (they should start expanding in a few seconds) and fry for about 30 seconds. When they're finished cooking they will drop down to the bottom & come back up. When finished remove from oil & place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and enjoy!
