Default Doņa Martha Makes Buņuelos

Yesterday was a fairly typical day at Do=F1a Martha's house. In the
morning she did three loads of laundry, made breakfast and cleaned
house. In the afternoon she made lunch for 10 people (asado de cerdo
con nopales), washed the dishes and then made 65 large bu=F1uelos
finishing the last of them at midnight.

http://rollybrook.com/bunuelos.htm They were so good! And so was the
asado -- see the nopales story for that recipe.

When I visited Taos pueblo several years ago, a Native American lady
was cooking bunuelos and selling them to tourists as "Indian Fry Bread"
for $3.00 apiece...

Actually, she was being honest (but maybe overcharging). Fry Bread is
a traditional part of the Navaho diet. Sugar sprinkles and baking
power would not be used in the traditional form, and it often has a
hole in the center. But today on the Res, there's usually little, if
any, difference between fry bread and a bu=F1uelo. In some parts of the
US Southwest, both are called sopapillo.
