Wandering and Feasting: Churros con Chocolate!

A paper cone full of freshly fried churros, in Sevilla, in the Santa Cruz barrio.

Before this trip to Spain, when I thought of churros I thought of the Mexican version, deep fried and rolled in cinnamon and sugar.  While still quite, quite fond of that version, I have found a new love: churros con chocolate.  We first tried them in Madrid: deep fried dough, dipped into a cup of hot chocolate so thick it was like a pudding.  A traditional Spanish breakfast food.  "A very powerful breakfast," as our waiter said.

This was in Granada, enjoyed in the lovely Plaza Bib-Rambla.

One side of the beautiful plaza.

One more look.

Happy Weekend and Happy Feasting!
