How to make it

  • Frijoles a la Charra:
  • Heat a skillet with oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and chiles and continue cooking, stirring often, until the onion is soft. Add the tomatoes and cumin and cook 5 minutes more. Add the beans and salt to taste. Cook covered for 30 minutes then uncovered for another 30 minutes. I like to smoosh my beans a little to create a thicker consistency.
  • Sopapillas:
  • Mix the yeast with the warm water and let it sit for five minutes.
  • Combine the flour and salt. Add the butter and sugar to the yeast/water mixture and then slowly add to the flour and salt. Knead for two minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Rise in a covered, greased bowl for one hour or until dough is doubled in size.
  • After dough has risen, punch it down, and on a floured surface, roll it out into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut out 3 inch squares, and then cut squares on the diagonal into triangles.
  • Heat up three inches of oil in a big pot to 375 degrees. Fry two triangles of dough at a time in the oil for one minute on each side. The dough should puff when it hits the oil. Drain on paper towels (Makes about 18 sopapillas).

    This is an interesting recipe. I usually see sopapillas as a dessert topped with honey, powdered sugar or chocolate. This looks good, I will have to try them like this! Thanks for sharing.
