Last week I spent a few days in New Mexico (whole re-cap coming soon!) and one of the best things I ate during my trip were sopapillas. Have you had a sopapilla before? There are different iterations; before last week, the only version I have had were South American and Tex-Mex versions, but the puffy ones you see pictured are vastly different.
The New Mexican-style sopapilla is almost like a cross between a South American sopapilla and a Native American fry bread. Think of them like that. They’re soft and fluffy and puffy. You’re supposed to dust them with lots of powdered sugar, pinch off a corner and drizzle honey inside them. They leave you licking your fingers with a bunch of powdered sugar all over your face but you won’t care, trust me.
