These Mexican fritters are very common at fairs. In my border hometown, the line at this stand is always overwhelming. People wait hours in line just to get a taste of these churros. I have run across several recipes but this is the best one by far.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
Keep the oil temperature consistently between 350 and 375 degrees F (175 and 190 degrees C) as you fry. If it gets too hot, turn off heat and let temperature drop down to that range.
