The Making of Churros in Mexico

While on the hunt for a Christmas tree, we stopped off at Churros Toño. The vendor was making his first batch of the day and I was all too happy to watch the process. Churros are the best!

Based on what I saw, he started off with boiling water in a big steel pan and then added flour, vanilla, and some more water. It was time to mix. This was not an easy task. I know because he let me try to do it. A lot of arm strength is required.

When the batter no longer sticks to your fingers, it’s ready to fry. It’s a strange contraption they put the batter into to push out the long tube shape into the oil.

Next, you let the churro fry until it turns a golden brown.

Cut into pieces and drag through sugar. Happiness in a bag!
