Sopapillas - Albuquerque, New Mexico Treat

The Sopapillas thought to have originated 200 years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico is a deep fried pastry pocket eaten as a desert or savory pocket. I stumbled across this delight about 4 years ago in old Albuquerque one night and asked for a recommendation for desert. I was given these golden pillows served hot and a squeeze bottle of honey, pick one up with your fingers and drizzle honey over top I was hooked! As you bite into the crispy pastry the sweetness of the warm honey and soft inside just melts in your mouth.
The air pocket created by deep frying allows you to use this as a vehicle to fill with  vegetables, taco beef, shredded chicken or pork load up with salsa and cheese and you have never had a taco quit like this before
