Ok, here's a recipe I have in my files. It's Caine's, from this website. I haven't tried it.
From: Caine on www.discusscooking.com
1 ½ c all purpose flour
2 t double-acting baking powder
¾ t salt
2 T shortening
½ c warm water
Oil for deep frying
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together into a large bowl. Cut the shortening into the flour until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add warm water and mix with the dough until it forms a ball.
On lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 5 minutes. Gather it into a ball, and cover with a kitchen towel. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a deep fryer or heavy saucepan to 400°F. Divide the dough in half and roll out each portion into an 8” circle. Cut each circle into four equal wedges. Fry the dough for 3 to 4 minutes, turning gently, until they puff up and turn golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Tradition dictates breaking one open, drizzling honey inside, and eating.
Also, several months ago, I bought what I thought was a bag of Masa Harina, and it ended up being a bag of Harina de Tortillas. Basically, it's a self-rising flour mix used to make flour tortillas. There was a Sopapilla recipe on the bag. I've made it twice, the most recently was two nights ago. For a "bagged mix" (yes, I used a bagged mix, please forgive me!), it was pretty good. My kids went nuts for them.
