What is a Churro?
A churro is long tube shaped, deep-fried dough, that is sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. Churros are usually dunked into a hot cup of chocolate or they can be filled with dulce de leche, cajeta, chocolate or vanilla. The churro originated in Spain, but can be found in cafes or sold in paper bags by street vendors all over Mexico City. They are traditionally eaten for breakfast although people eat them throughout the day as a snack.
