New Mexican Sopapillas

New Mexican Sopapillas

Every visitor to New Mexico falls in love with our sopapillas. Former residents of the Land of Enchantment lament about how much they miss them.  News Flash! They are so simple to make you don't have to be deprived ever again! 

Sopapillas are generally served along with a meal or as a dessert afterwards, but they can also be filled much like a burrito for a main dish. Try making them. I'm betting that once you see how easy they are to make they will become a regular treat at your house!

   

             Sopapillas






Sopapillas
 


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons vegetable shortening

3/4 cup warm water, plus more as needed

Peanut oil, for frying


Sift the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add the shortening and water, work them in with your hands to make a soft, pliable dough. Add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, if the dough feels too dry. Gather the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Put the dough in the refrigerator and chill for at least 1 hour so it will firm up a bit and be easier to roll and cut. (Dough can be prepared 1 day ahead, refrigerated.)


Unwrap the ball of dough and put on a lightly floured surface, cut in half. With a floured rolling pin, roll each piece of dough into a circle, about 1/4-inch thickness. Using a paring knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into triangles as you would a pizza. You should end up with 6 or 8 triangles per circle.


Heat 2-inches of oil to 375 degrees F in a heavy skillet or deep pot over medium-high heat.


Fry a few of the sopapillas at a time, keeping an eye on maintaining the oil temperature. As the sopapillas puff up and rise to the surface, flip them over with a slotted spoon, skimmer, or chopsticks; about 2 minutes on each side. Carefully remove the sopapillas from the oil and drain on several layers of paper towels. Cool slightly.
