These past couple of weeks, I have tried my hand at making a couple of new mexican breads. I didn't take pictures of the sopapillas, but let me assure you, they were puffy, chewy, and delicious! Sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and then drizzled with honey-- mmm, MMMM!
Nathan loved the tortillas; however, I thought that they were just a bit better than store-bought-- perhaps not enough to entice me to go through the mixing and rolling and grilling again. Next time I will try the refridgerated uncooked tortillas from the store and see how they stack up against my homemade.
