Our eight children love helping make these sweet crunchy treats. We fry flour tortillas for a few seconds in oil, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. They're fun to make for a large group. I usually do the frying, then have one of the older kids add the coating.

"A totally quick way to fry Elephant Ears to create from 6" flour taco's. Yield 10 servings. Great dessert for a 'Mexican' dinner! Looks good to me!!!"

"Made these on-site at a Sunday School fundraiser dinner. People were eating them faster than we could make them! They were so fast, easy and delicious - my oldest son likes to make them at home now for a treat."

"I was stuck at home from having surgery. My sis hadn't filled my grocery list. I'm normally not at home so I had very few items. For some reason I had a bag of tortillas. I came across your website. From your website and my tortillas I made 3 meals. As I started on the elephant ears my sis and fam came in. After grabbing a bite, she swore I had been to our local Mexican restaurant (I'm not suppose to drive) I had to show her your website and my bag of sugar. They raved over the dessert .... thx!"
