Homemade Bunuelos/Sopaipilas

I finally figured out that I can add a 'blogger' follower gadget instead of a Google Plus followers gadget to my sidebar at right so if you'd like to follow me that option is available!  

My blog is still under construction and the sidebar still needs a bit of help but I'm liking what I see so far.  Maybe another week or so before things are (hopefully) perfect!  

We're having our first link up this Frugal Friday and I do hope you join us.  You can read about it here!  

And now on to the main reason for posting!  

Bunuelos/Sopaipilas can be made with store bought flour tortillas or by rolling out your homemade flour tortilla dough and frying it in oil.  The 'real' homemade ones are SOOOOOO much better but the store bought version are pretty a~ok too! 

Just fry your rolled out dough or storebought tortillas in some oil, let them drain, and then sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on the top of them.  They are so yummy!  
Great with coffee or on the side of a dish of ice cream.  
Some people call them bunuelos and other people call them Sopaipilas.   Fights might ensue about which is the right term but I just say 'either' and call them very, very good! 
By the way, Frugal Friday Linkup starts TOMORROW~  I do hope you join us with all of your frugal tips and hints on how you save money!  Please do join us!
