Photo of the Day: Chilean Churros

From April 13 to 19, I traveled around Chile with two other American food journalists on a culinary media trip. Here's another snapshot from that week. —Robyn Lee


Having only been exposed to the skinny, sugar-coated, star-shaped variety of churros, I was surprised when I came across the completely different looking Chilean version at a bakery in Temuco. A churro in Chile is like an elongated hot dog bun-shaped doughnut sandwich filled with a layer of golden dulce de leche. The dough of this churro was a bit on the heavy side, but I can't say no to sweet bread slathered in sweet, creamy goodness. Not until I get diabetes, at least.
