Getting ready to cook

    Preparing the tortillas

    • Place the tortillas on a chopping board in a pile.
    • Cut the tortillas into triangles.
    • Put oil into a deep frying pan, no more than 1/3 full. Heat it up to 350°F
    • Carefully place 4 or 5 triangles in the hot oil, turn over after 20 seconds, lift out after another 20 seconds.
    • Place on kitchen paper, set on a wire rack.
    • Move quickly to the bowl of cinnamon sugar.

    Preparing the cinnamon sugar

    • Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl, I like to use a hand whisk. Once it is a consistent shade, it is ready to use.
