  • 2 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 10 Tortillas Con Madre flour tortillas


In a large pot or skillet, add at least one inch of oil and heat over medium-high (350° F if using a thermometer).

While the oil is heating, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish and set aside.

Fry tortillas for 2 to 3 minutes, flipping every 15 seconds, until golden brown and crisp through.

Remove from oil and let the excess oil drip back into the pan. Immediately dredge or sprinkle tortilla with cinnamon-sugar mix. Serve immediately.
