If you have never had a sopapilla then you have not lived. A recipe is not really needed as they are just a flour tortilla sliced in fourths, deep fried to golden perfection, and then drizzled with sweet honey. However, if you need one, Sopapillas with a Side of Honey is a perfectly written example of these warm, puffy treats.
There are few things better in the world than homemade tortillas fried to perfection into a sopapilla. If I were a stay at home cook who did not have a full time job with a full time family then maybe homemade flour tortilla sopapillas would be made. Since I am not, the quick weeknight version will just have to fill the need. Instead of homemade flour tortillas, I use store bought flour tortillas, thick or thin versions. I have even used flour tortillas which had been left open and dried out. They all work just as well.
No to the cinnamon and sugar. This is not toast. There is not butter. These are not bunuelos. Bunuelos are a whole other deep fried goodness. The differences between the two are huge, night and day. You can read more about them here.
Scaled for Likability: Great
Are these the as good as the homemade versions. No but they are good all the same. To say they are as good would imply that homemade brownies are as good as those plastic wrapped versions with the colored sprinkles. You know the kind, the ones in the cardboard box marketed for lunch boxes and can sit in your pantry for months and month. Yeah, no. These are not as good as homemade but they are worlds better than those fake plastic wrapped brownies. In fact, I would argue one could not tell the difference between the two when given a taste test. In fact, this will have to be done the next time homemade tortillas are made.
