    Duritos? Duros?



    I have seen these little orange wheels in the grocery store for years but never really knew what they were. I bought some today after seeing a foodnetwork show. Wow! They are delicious. Put some oil in a skillet and drop them in. When the float to the top and turn brown they are done. About five seconds. You can't put them in the oil one at a time, the first ones will burn before you get it out. I put a handfull in at one time. A little salt or sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. And the best part? The produce bag I filled up cost me $.78 cents. I used safflower oil but any oil you use to fry is okay. Google says:
    Mexicansnack foodmade of puffed wheat, often flavored with chilli and lime.[1]
    Got fabric?

    I Googled and the authenic ones were always made of wheat to form a hard pasta thus the name Duro. DH thought they were good for a different snack.

    My aunt and uncle would bring them back from Mexico. My kids call them "wagon wheels". I fry them in oil. We love them sprinkled with seasoned salt or cinnamon and sugar.

    I used to see these in a bulk barrell in the produce section, but I never see them anymore. I'll have to check the Hispanic foods aisle to see if they come prepackaged. I've always wanted to make them, but I don't like frying things. I'll have to try the microwave trick if I find some.

    My dog love them plain for a treat. LOL. Many dogs have a wheat allergy so I would't suggest these if you don't know.
