This crunchy treat is a Chilean version of buñuelos, and can be made either sweet or savory.

This traditional Chilean recipe can best be described as a crispy buñuelo. I like to sprinkle my sopaipillas with powdered sugar, or for a savory variation, I dip them in hummus, pico de gallo or ceviche.

You are going to love these crunchy treats!
