My kids just love saying this, Sopapillas (Soap-ah-Pee-yas)! These are so easy to make and can be eaten plain, with the cinnamon and sugar mixture, or topped w/whipped cream and strawberry preserves.

These have been a NO-NO for me as I have been trying to eat better but I figured out a way to make them a little healthier so we can still enjoy them from time to time.




  • 8-10 flour tortillas, the smaller ones work better
  • canola oil for frying
  • 2 T. cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • whipped cream, optional
  • strawberry preserves or ice cream topping, optional
  • honey, optional


Use a pizza cutter or scissors to cut each tortilla into 4 wedges.

Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.

Heat the oil over a medium-high skillet. Fry tortillas until lightly browned and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. The tortillas will puff up as they cook.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar while warm.

Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of strawberry preserves, if desired. It can also be served with a drizzle of honey.


You can make these a little healthier by using low carb tortillas, coconut oil, and this cinnamon sugar mixture:

Use 2 T cinnamon to every 1/2 c. Stevia to make it in larger batches.

Also, go easy on the toppings and try to use sugar-free versions, if possible.
