There is no snack more traditionally Spanish than churros, crisp doughnut sticks or loops, sprinkled with sugar and consumed with a cup of rich, thick hot chocolate. Both churros and the technique of deep-frying were first brought to Cuba by the Spanish. Today, hundreds of years later, Cubans are still deep-frying churros—and everything else, from pork to plantains.
