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.
