Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Mexican #Bread: SOPAPILLAS (Fried Bread) from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is SOPAPILLAS!

I haven’t made these in ages. I used to make them for my family when the kids were still at home. But these are a marvelous, easy treat once in a while. Hot. Tender. Tasty. Drizzled with honey, they’re sticky goodness!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
