Sopapilla Mix

A taste of New Mexico. So easy just follow the recipe. 


1 package of Suárez Market Sopapilla Mix

2 tbsp. shortening or lard

¾ cups hot water

2 cups vegetable oil

To Dust & Drizzle

¼ cup confectioners sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

4 tbsp. honey

Directions:  In a large mixing bowl, add sopapilla mix and shortening. Use your hands to incorporate the shortening into the mix. Add hot water a little at a time and mix with your hands until dough is formed. Knead for 5-minutes. Place the dough in a plastic bag to rest. Cover with a towel. Rest the dough for 20-minutes. In a dutch oven, heat oil to 350˚. Once rested, divide dough into four pieces. Roll each piece into rectangles 1/4" thick. Cut into smaller squares. Once the oil reaches temperature, carefully add small squares into the oil. No more than three at a time. Cook to golden brown on both sides, flipping them with a fork or slotted spoon. The cooking time is approximately 4-minutes. Remove and place on a paper towel-lined cookie sheet. Dust with cinnamon powder sugar. Keep warm in an oven set on low. Serve with a drizzle of honey.
