About This Recipe 

Eva's restaurant, Beso, is located on the Las Vegas strip and brings a Latin flare to traditional steakhouse fare. 


1/3 cup lard
1 pinch of salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs
3 cups sugar
2 tbsp. cinnamon
4 quarts vegetable oil, for deep-frying


1. In a medium saucepan, bring lard, 1 cup water, and salt to a boil. Add flour and stir until mixture starts to pull away from sides of the pan. Remove the pan from heat and immediately add to the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until cooled to just above room temperature.

2. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until dough is smooth and combined. Transfer dough to a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip (#7).

3. In a bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

4. In a 6-quart saucepan, heat oil to 350°F (on a deep-frying thermometer). Pipe churro batter into hot oil in 3-inch lengths. Fry until golden brown. With a slotted spoon, transfer churros to cinnamon sugar and toss. Serve hot.
