I've never made sopapillas, do you make them from scratch or do you get the box mix? I should give it a whirl. Ah, green chile. My mom came up last month and brought us some. Verrrry tasty to say the least. Do you jar or freeze yours?
Just another note (on topic of course;) )
We also use corn tortillas for tacos. We don't generally fry them in this house though. We either heat them in a ziploc in the microwave to lock in the moisture (white corn) and for yellow corn tortillas we spray a little oil on both sides and heat them up on the grill.
