Remember when Chi-Chi's was all the rage? The fresh tortilla chips with the mild and hot salsa? The Mexican pizza? The burritos? The sopapillas?
Chi-Chi's went into a major decline in our area - going from a hot spot to a closed down shell of a restaurant in a matter of years. Isn't it interesting how just twenty years ago places like Chi-Chi's were considered exotic? moving on....
I still remember the sopapillas. Fried pieces of dough that you could dip into honey, chocolate sauce or strawberry sauce - I loved them.
Because today is May 5th - Cinco de Mayo - I'm going to try to recreate sopapillas tonight for dessert!
