Churros are widely known as a Mexican or Spanish snack. However Churros are made in different ways around the world. It can be made as a dessert or snack and is very common to be bought as streetfood with chocolate sauce on top or to dip in. I have two recipes for Churros here. One with egg and butter and one without eggs and with oil. The dipping sauce is most often a chocolate sauce but could be something else as well. The easy way is to use Nutella. However I have the recipe of three different sauces here as well. It is just to go by your own preference really.

Tamales have always been loved by the Hispanic people and in the 1900’s they have become known and loved by all cultures as much as sushi and dim-sum, which were, in the past, also holiday and celebration foods.
