Dulce de Leche Churros from La Tolteca

This week: Dulce de Leche Churros from La Tolteca
¿Como se dice?: Churros are a sweet and crunchy ending to any delicious Mexican feast, and go great with a mug of Mexican hot chocolate, champurrado or a strong cup of café. We grew up eating them fresh out of the fryer from stands out in front of Costco (with a hot dog on the side). What could possibly top that nostalgic churro memory and improve upon the classic deep-fried, cinnamon sugar-dusted treat? Why fill it with dulce de leche, naturalmente.

Bring a bit of México to your kitchen: We couldn't find a dulce de leche churro recipe where the churros were filled with sweet, caramel flavor, but you could easily whip up a dulce de leche sauce and either pipe it into cooled churros or serve it on the side for dipping. We can't guarantee that it's the same as La Tolteca's superb caramel-filled churros, but it's as close as you're going to get out of a home kitchen.
