A classic New Mexican treat, these are best described as fluffy pockets of delight. They've got a perfectly crunchy exterior that gives way to a soft and chewy interior. Serve them up with a drizzle of honey or a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top. Or, better yet, try tearing off a corner and filling the inside with some honey. You won't be disappointed!
