Churros

Churros may be more familiar to you as a dessert that you see at a state fair or at a
mall stand, but in Spain and Portugal, children and adults alike enjoy churros for
breakfast! Usually, churros come with a chocolate dip – but as a breakfast, it is
usually enjoyed with a drink. Champurrado or hot chocolate for kids, and café con
leche for adults.
Churros are a sweet way to start your day!
