Sopapillas [moved from San Francisco board]

Long long time ago when I was young and poor and very pregnant with my son, I lived in New Mexico. All I craved was New Mexican food. Not Tex Mex, not some gringo Mexican but real goodness New Mexican. Unfortunately, going out to eat was a huge treat, and being so poor it didn't happen at all. So, I learned to cook nearly everything from scratch...beans, rice, chile, enchilada sauch, tortillas, even sopapillas!

Sopapillas are REALLY easy to make from scratch. Just whip up a batch of your favorite biscuit dough....let sit a good 30 minutes (or longer) before rolling it out about 1/8" thick. Cut into long triangles and pop into hot oil. When the down sides turn golden brown, flip over and they'll puff up. Drain on paper towels and serve with honey! Or stuff with your favorite taco fixings! Yum!
