My kids were looking for a sugary snack this morning and we had none in the house, so I came up with these fried tortillas with cinnamon and sugar. Very uncomplicated and yummy. I have made them before with regular tortillas, but wanted to sneak some nutrition in them, so I used multi-grain tortillas and canola oil. I also cut them into the shape of their initials. Along with a strawberry-banana fat-free smoothie, I think they had some great nutrition and a yummy snack. PS... I shook the excess cinnamon and sugar off before serving. They look pretty with a lot on though, don't you think?
Below are the tortillas I used. The only trick is to have the oil on high so they only have to fry for about 1 minute or less on each side. That way, they get crispy and don't soak up the oil. Just heat your oil in a frying pan (take it off the heat if it starts to smoke) and get to work! One tortilla was enough for each boy. I had a half of one and an ice coffee. Great on a hot day!
