Simple, yet delicious
So I was going to a party tonight and wanted to bring something along to share. I had some leftover flour tortillas and decided I could make something yummy out of them. Back in the '80's, Taco Bell used to have a treat called Cinnamon Crispas on their menu. They weren't puffs like the Cinnamon Twists they have now; they were simply fried flour tortillas that were dredged in cinnamon and sugar. Simple, yet delicious. I put them out at the party and they were gone before I could get one for myself.

In a pie plate, mix together 1/2 cup granulated sugar with 2 tablespoons cinnamon.
Cut 6-8 soft-taco size flour tortillas into 1-inch strips or into wedges. Meanwhile, heat 1/2-inch oil in a large skillet* until hot enough for frying.
Fry a few strips at a time until light golden brown. Drain briefly on paper towels, then dredge the strips through the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Repeat with remaining strips.
These would be delicious served with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
*An electric skillet set at 350-degrees works well for this recipe. I received this one for Christmas and it performed well for me.
