Always a favorite of my kids, this recipe explains how to make a snowflake shaped snack out of a tortilla. It is a fun and easy snake the entire family can help make, although an adult should be in charge of doing all of the frying.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- Flour Tortillas
- Powdered Sugar
Use the same technique as cutting out paper snowflakes to make snowflake shapes out of flour tortillas. You will want to fold the tortilla in half at least twice to get a nice design. You may need to warm the tortilla in the microwave a little bit first to make it more flexible. Put about a 1/4 of an inch of oil in pan and fry the tortilla until it is crisp. Remove it using tongs and set it on some paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
We top our snowflakes with powdered sugar so they are white, but you can try other toppings. Try one or more of these ideas:
- Spread jam on one side of the tortilla.
- Top the tortilla with refried beans.
- Melt some cheese on top.
- Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and sugar.
- Use bologna, turkey, ham, cheese, etc. and make a snowflake sandwich.
There are many possibilities.
