Called sopaipillas in Spanish, these treats originated in Old Town Albuquerque over three centuries ago. This out-of-the-ordinary modern version is made oatfully healthy for extra nutrition. Delicious drenched with Orange Honey Butter.

New Mexican Fry Bread

  • 1 cup Oat Blend flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 5 tablespoons warm water

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl; cut in shortening. Stir in warm water. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead and fold until smooth and satiny. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes. Form into 1-inch balls; keep covered. Roll each ball into a thin 3-inch circle. Cover circles with waxed paper, separating circles. Pinch and pull circle edges (lightly) as you drop into preheated oil in Presto® electric deep fryer. Fry 1 or 2 at a time. Fry 1 minute; turn and fry 1 minute or until golden brown. Serve with honey or Orange Honey Butter.
Makes about 1 dozen.

  • 1/2 cup butter (1-stick)
