No one hates churros… at least, I’ve never met anyone who hates churros.
But, no one loves churros as much as I do.
Live footage of me in my home:
The flaky, crunchy, but somehow soft pastry is a delicious staple of one of my favorite places to visit — Mexico. Every time I go, I have a few main things in mind — the beach, churros, margaritas, churros and churros.
So, after my last trip, I decided it was about time to figure out how to make this delicious snack at home. I anticipated that the process would be hard a grueling, but honestly, it’s ~insanely~ easy.
Bon appetit, friends!
