Give us all things Churro!! In the evenings, in a park not too far from our home the Churro Man is setting up his stand. He carefully lays the churro dough into the hot grease in a circular pattern. The churros cook in the grease until they are golden brown. You can smell it from far away. It’s then he lifts the churros into a box he has filled with a cinnamon sugar mixture. The sugar melts into the creases of the hot churro. It is perfection! He cuts the churros into smaller pieces and places them into small brown paper bags where the excess grease is absorbed. He then will offer chocolate or sweetened condensed milk to dip them into. It is an experience to eat from the Churro Man’s stand.
One you won’t soon forget!
If you don’t have a Churro Man close by, these churro bites are a yummy second! They will get eaten quickly. Make a big batch!
