Churros

I was recently introduced to Churros by a Mexican friend, who claimed that she could keep eating them and never get tired. Churros turned out to be fritters…. Mexican fritters which tasted ethereal when dunked in chocolate sauce. Turns out the friend was right. I kept eating them yesterday, especially since I’d made a generous quantity of the chocolate sauce to go with them.

  1. I agree with your friend. When I tried Churros for the first time, I don’t want to stop eating them. When I made them myself, I just can’t tell myself to stop. Churros became an instant favorite of mine.

    These churros are incredibly divine and more divine with chocolate sauce! Thanks for bringing these to FF15. Hope you are having fun! :)
