Fresh out of the fryer and liberally dusted with cinnamon sugar, these fluffy treats make it easy to indulge without worry. Read on to see why these gluten-free churros are a hit in Salt Lake City.

What Is the Story Behind Churros?

Before diving into this churro’s incredible ingredients, let’s take a stroll down memory lane. First, we will tell you all about the history behind the churro.

The history of the churro dates back to the 16th century. However, Spain and Portugal have different stories about how the churro was invented.

The Portuguese say their sailors brought the recipe home from their travels to China. The Spanish claim that the recipe originated in the mountains, where they could not access baked goods. They used basic ingredients to fry the dough in a pan over the fire.

Today, churros are consumed differently depending on the culture. For example, in Spain, people eat churros for breakfast. It is more like an afternoon or dinner dessert in Mexico and other places around the globe.

How Does Taqueria 27 Make Their Churros?

Now it is time to talk about how Taqueria 27 makes one of the best gluten-free desserts. The key is to use fresh, fried, gluten-free dough.

There are several different gluten-free doughs out there. Rice or almond flours are two options that you can use. The next step is to add starch, which can be either the potato or tapioca variety.

After frying the dough, you are going to sprinkle sugar on it. What makes Taqueria 27’s churro stand out is the Mexican chocolate sugar.

You already know Taqueria 27 takes their gluten-free Mexican food to the next level. We elevate the churro game by adding chocolate sauce and whipped cream. This dessert is officially more than a sugar stick from a street vendor.

What Goes Great with a Churro?

Churros are the perfect dessert after you pig out at Taqueria 27. We are known for our tacos and enchiladas.
