I have no idea what the real name of these are…and if I do, I have no idea how to spell it anyway. We call them Sopapias.
Originally we had something similar at a Mexican restaurant when we went for someone’s birthday. We then ended up ordering them quite frequently. Then the restaurant closed. We’ve not been to another that makes them so I decided that I would just make up a recipe.
After a few tries this is what I came up with. They are actually very close to what we had at the restaurant.
These are so-so-so easy and very fast.
Take a flour tortilla and cut it into wedges like a pie. Next heat up about an 1/8″ of oil in the bottom of a frying pan. Heat the oil. Keep the heat on medium high. Put a single layer of wedges in the oil. It just takes a short bit and they will puff up a bit. Flip them. Just a bit more in the pan and they are done. Take the shells out and drain them on a paper towels.
Place them on a plan. Drizzle a little honey on them along with some cinnamon and sugar. Then squirt a bit of Reddi Whip on the top. Then they are done.
They need to served warm. We all love them and I love having a simple-and fast- dessert idea. Plus, I always have the ingredients on hand.
Give them a try sometime. You might be surprised on how good they really are.
