Homemade Crustos!

Derived from our favorite fast food taco place- Taco Time, I thought I would share the most simple Crustos recipe known to man. SIDE NOTE:  Contrary to what my brother-in-law Stevie thinks, Crustos are served at all Taco Time establishments and not just the one in Price, Utah. This one's for you Stevie! :D
NEEDS: 1/4 Vegetable oil (or canola oil)
Flour tortillas
Cinnamon & Sugar
Frying pan
Begin by cutting your tortillas in fourths (or strips if you desire) and set them aside. Heat the oil in a frying pan. (I used a small pan, so 1/4 cup of oil was all I needed- bigger pan...use more oil) TIP- heat your oil on high, you want them to brown fairly quickly to avoid the tortilla soaking up the oil. If you fry them fast, they will crisp instead of turn soggy. Place the tortilla in the hot oil. Have tongs in hand, so you can flip quickly and easily. Brown on both sides and place onto a plate covered in paper towel. Immediately sprinkle with a generous helping of cinnamon and sugar. Repeat the process until all the tortillas are done. Even our picky, picky 4 year old scarfed these fry puppies up!! Enjoy!!
