Greg and I had a low-key anniversary, as it landed on a Monday. We be celebratin' tonight! He's taking me to the place where we had our wedding reception (an amazing Italian restaurant, in case you were wondering).
So, even though the actual anniversary was low-key, he grilled fajitas and I wanted to be in charge of dessert (being preggo with lil Baby O gives me even more of a sweet tooth). I wanted to make cheesecake, but he jokingly suggested sopapillas and started walking down the grocery aisle saying "SO-pa-PEE-yas!" in a high-pitched weird voice.
Then I thought about it... and it sounded delish. It could be my crazy craving, but I wanted to make it.
Have you non-Texans (I say that like it's a curse... ha) ever heard of this or had them before? I know it's a Tex-Mex thing.
I will admit, I wasn't super hardcore about the sopapillas, as I didn't make the dough myself. I know the sopapilla purists are probably cringing as they read this. Well, my way was actually really easy, and paired with a bowl of vanilla ice cream, it was heaven.
Here's what I did:
- Quartered some flour tortillas
- Heated some vegetable oil in a skillet
- Fried those babies up
- Rolled them around in a cinnamon/sugar mixture
- Ate them with vanilla ice cream
Here's what I regret:
- Not smothering it in honey. I even have some in the pantry. Silly Meg.
