  • Form into golf ball-sized pieces on a lightly-floured surface, then press to form into disks about 3/4-inch thick.

  • Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the chapaleles on both sides until crisped and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Alternatively, they may be baked in a 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
