    Hunkle's Note:

    Nothing beats an authentic, off the street cart churro. I tried making authentic churros at home. Although they came out alright, they were a hassle. One day I had a can of flaky biscuits that were about to expire and needed to fit it into my Mexican brunch. They don't look exactly like a churro, but they taste very close to it and are far less messy to make. Hope you enjoy them.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (16 ounce) can refrigerated biscuits (flaky)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • 12 ounces vegetable oil


    1. 1
      Heat oil in a large deep fryer until the temperature registers 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Roll biscuits into 1/4 inch thin dough snakes. Rolling the flaky biscuit dough on its side will simulate the ridges seen on churros when deep fried. Cut dough snakes in half if they are too long to fit without bending into your fryer.
    3. 3
      Drop each dough snake into a paper bag filled with only the sugar (do not add the cinnamon yet) and shake to coat. The sugar will melt on the churro as it fries to make it sticky so the final sugar/cinnamon mixture adheres better.
    4. 4
      Shake off excess sugar.
    5. 5
      Fry each dough snake until golden brown and crispy on the edges.
    6. 6
      Remove from oil and drain on a wire rack. Do not drain on paper towels. The sticky sugar will stick to it.
    7. 7
      Once all the churros have been fried, add the cinnamon to the remaining sugar in the paper bag and shake to mix. Add more sugar if needed.
    8. 8
      Drop each cooked churro into the bag and shake to coat.
    9. 9
      Shake off excess sugar mixture and enjoy.
