Video: Making buñuelos with Connie

Connie Ortiz-Johnson has been making buñuelos since she was a little girl growing up in Mexico.

The chef behind Connie’s Authentic Mexican Cuisine catering company shared her secrets for the perfect buñuelos with Hola Cultura.


Watch her technique for rolling out the dough until it’s nearly see-through before frying it for the most delicious buñuelos that are both crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.

We also have Connie’s recipe for the Buñuelos dough available on Hola Cultura’s TamalFest fundraising page.

For a $10 tax-deductible donation to benefit our next festival of Latin American tamales, take home the recipe too.
