Churros on the street corner – Mexico

Cooking:

 

The finished product: To be dipped in a large shallow bowl holding a mixture of sugar, cinnamon, and (the chef’s secret ingredient) chocolate powder.

 

By the time the chef wraps our churros in a large sheet of brown paper a long line up has formed behind us.

These treats are definitely worth the wait.
