Funny, I had a sopapilla this morning. The Mexican guy at our feria (farmer's market) was there this morning with tacos and conchas and sopapillas. I had two tacos, one braised pig cheeks and the other ears and something or other with chile verde. Then I came back for a sopapilla. He was frying them in a big pot of lard. They were heavenly and I'll probably die sooner than I would have if I'd stuck to fruit for breakfast, but it was worth it.
Good luck with the sopapillas. They're pretty easy to make. Oil works well...but lard kicks butt!
Thanks everyone! :D
