An English speaker’s perspective

Discover Spanish With Us


We just got home from the state fair. Something we always eat there are called churros. They are a deep fried batter covered with sugar and cinnamon. Something like a donut. Sometimes they are shaped into circles and sometimes they are just straight like sticks.

I read that they are a popular breakfast food in Spain and Mexico. We have never eaten them for breakfast, but they are always present at any crowded event. They are very cheap and easy to make.

The fact that they are easy to make lends itself to a common idiom. Hacer como churros means to do easily. Kind of the idea that something is quick and easy to do. Maybe like our English expression, like a piece of cake.

I am curious as to which other countries eat churros.
