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.


  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Oil for frying
  • 10 flour tortillas (6 inches)


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside. In a small skillet, heat 1/2 in of oil. Place one tortilla at a time in skillet, cook for 5 seconds; turn and cook 10 seconds longer or until browned. Place in sugar mixture; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
