Lala Cinnamon Bunuelos With Vanilla Cream

Flour tortillas fried until crispy and sprinkled in a cinnamon brown sugar mixture and served with warm melted chocolate and vanilla whipped cream infused with tangy LALA® Crema Mexicana.


  • PREP TIME: 10-12 Minutes
  • COOK TIME: 10 Minutes
  • SERVES: 8


  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 ½ cups Cinnamon, ground
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • ¾ cup LALA® Crema Mexicana (Mexican Style Sour Cream)
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 ½ tbsp Powdered Sugar
  • As needed Vegetable Oil
  • 8 each 8” Flour Tortillas
  • 3 tbsp. Dark Chocolate Sauce


Mix sugars and cinnamon together in a bowl until well combined. Set aside.

Add the heavy cream, LALA® Crema Mexicana, vanilla extract and powdered sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and whip on high speed for 1-2 minutes or until medium/stiff peaks are reached. Store in a cool spot until ready to use.

Heat a heavy bottom pot over medium-high heat with a 5 inch layer of oil. Bring up to 350ºF.

Fry one flour tortilla at a time and cook on both sides for 1-2 minutes or until tortilla is an even golden brown. The tortilla will puff up and bubble, this is normal. If bubbles are too large, poke to deflate.

Once fried, place tortilla on a paper towel and allow excess oil to drip off and liberally sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the fried tortillas.

Allow to cool and repeat with the remaining 7 tortillas.

Stack tortillas on a serving dish and dollop a ½ cup of the vanilla cream on top and place the rest in a serving dish.

Finish with a drizzle of dark chocolate sauce over top of the tortillas. Enjoy immediately!
