This may be the greatest simple dessert to have in your arsenal, perfectly crisp, uniquely flavoured, and easy to whip up on a whim.



  1.   Heat oil on medium high heat. Test that it is hot by adding a tiny piece of tortilla to the oil, if it bubbles around it a lot, it’s ready.
  2.  Carefully add tortillas to the oil, one at a time, separating them with space as they fry.
  3. They should immediately puff up and begin to get golden on the underside, flip with tongs and brown the other side until golden. It should only take about 20-30 seconds to fry them up.
  4. Remove all from oil and place in large bowl with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Be careful not to break them while tossing them inside the mixture until they are all coated. Remove from mix and store in a container. Repeat until all tortillas are cooked, adding more cinnamon sugar mix to bowl if needed.  
  6. Enjoy with ice cream or straight up on their own!
