It’s The First Day Of Fall. Is It Mexican Hot Chocolate Time?

Today is the first day of fall and all over the country it’s getting cooler. On a day like today I could go for some churros y chocolaté caliente. It’s not just for kids. Who doesn’t love fried dough and hot chocolate? The combination of these two treats originally comes from Spain but in it found its most popular form in Mexico. Even though I am Cuban, I grew up in Texas and this kind of hot chocolate, (the Mexican kind with the spices), are what I remember from childhood. Unfortunately, there isn’t anywhere to get these treats in my neighborhood so I’ve had to learn to make them myself. Churros y Chocolate Caliente

For Churros:
8 cups vegetable oil 1 cup water 1/2 cup butter 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup flour 3 eggs 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For Hot Chocolate:
2 Cups milk
1 Bar of Mexican Chocolate (like Abuelita)
1/3 of a Piloncillo or two tsp of brown sugar
Heat the oil in a pan until it is scald your face off hot. Mix the water, butter, and salt in a separate saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the flour and keep mixing until it forms a delicious dough ball. Quickly shove the dough into a piping bag, preferably with a star tip. If you don’t have a piping bag you can improvise by sticking the dough in a plastic storage bag and cutting off one of the corners. Squeeze the dough in long strands into the oil and fry to a golden brown. Drain on some paper towels when done. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle liberally on the churros.
To make the hot chocolate, simply bring the milk to a boil and break up the chocolate and piloncillo in the milk. Pretty easy. Now dip the churro in the chocolate and taste the friggin’ love.
