Mexican Crispas

To celebrate the feast of St. Juan Diego today we made Mexican Crispas.
I referred to them here in this post, but for you visual readers (like myself) here are better directions.
All you need is:
Granulated sugar
Oil (I use Canola)
Flour tortillas (I use store bought, I'm kind of the Semi-Semi Homemade cook)

Cut tortillas into triangles and fry in oil, browning both sides.

Then, place onto paper towels to drain a little of the oil, but not too long, just long enough to put more into the pan, then put the hot ones into a mixture of Cinnamon and Sugar in a bag, and shake to coat.
That's it.
Then eat warm or cold.
But, they are really good warm!
I've been making these since I was a teen, and that was over 20 years ago!
