Celebrating Mexican Cuisine – Churros

  • 0
  • October 26, 2017

Churros are in Mexico what doughnuts are in the U.S. But rather than being round, these are like long sticks. They are especially wonderful when freshly made and served warm. (I like dunking them in hot chamomile tea).

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Instructions

Combine water, margarine and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil, then stir in the flour. Continue stirring and cooking for about another minute over low heat until the mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat and beat in the eggs. Continue beating until smooth. Pour oil into a heavy skillet until it is about 1-1/2 inches deep. Place over heat and bring temperature to 360 degrees F.

Scoop the dough into a cake decorating tube with a large star tip. Squeeze 4-inch strips of dough into hot oil and fry until golden brown, turning once. Fry about 2 minutes on each side. You can do batches of 3 or 4 at a time. Drain churros on paper towels. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a bag. Shake the churros in the sugar mixture.

And here’s another great tasting Mexican treat– bizcochitos. These traditional thin, crisp sugar cookies are made any time of the year, but are always seen at fiestas and holidays such as Christmas. This version of the cookie was originally given to me by Maria T. from El Paso, Texas. and has become one of my favorite cookies.

And, of course, if you struggle with discomfort caused by high acid in various foods and beverages, Prelief may help!

From unbearable pain to active Mom again

Hi,Thank you for talking with me today. I had called to tell you how wonderful your Prelief product is. I have been suffering from bladder pain for years. It started after I had my 1st child and got worse after my 2nd. I have gone to numerous doctors for what I initially thought were recurring bladder infections.


Regards, N.M.

A distressed college student finds normalcy and happiness

Hi there, I have interstitial cystitis (IC), also known as “painful bladder syndrome. ” As a 25 year old man in college, having this painful disease is very distressing not only due to the significant discomfort, but also because it affects my mood, my ability to study and do well on exams, and my willingness to participate in activities and live a full life. My urologist has had me on Elmiron, various antidepressants, pain medications, and more to treat my IC.
