Mexican Churros

Mexican Churros


  • 2 cups canola oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Heat water, margarine and salt to rolling boil in 3-quart saucepan. Stir in flour. Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat. Beat in eggs all at once and continue beating until smooth.
  • Heat oil to 1-1/2 inch depth in heavy skillet to 360 degrees.
  • Spoon the dough into a decorator’s tube with large star tip for authentic-looking churros. Squeeze 4-inch strips of dough into hot oil. Fry 3 or 4 strips at a time until golden brown, turning once; about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Drain. Mix sugar and cinnamon in brown paper bag. Shake the churros in the sugar mixture.
