The photo above may look disgusting but believe me, this typical Chilean dish of Sopaipillas Pasadas is great!

Sopaipillas are a flat circular deep fried ‘bread’ made from pumpkin and flour.

When sopaipillas are immersed in a warm sauce that contains water, dark brown sugar, cinnamon and orange rind, they are called sopaipillas pasadas. This sweet dish is served heated which makes it a typical winter treat in Chile.

Just so you know, the sopaipillas in the photo at the top were homemade so are not the typical ‘industrial’ round flat ones.

Plain sopaipillas (not sopaipillas pasadas) are often sold from carts on the footpath though the healthiness of them is questionable. Personally my iron-clad stomach allows me to indulge in them. There is nothing better than smothering warm sopaipillas with mustard and pebre (seasoning of tomatoes with chopped onion, chili, coriander, and chives) on a cold winter night.

Have you tried Sopaipillas pasadas?
Have you eaten any normal sopaipillas from the carts in the street?

    Why didn’t you feature Torta Milojas. There is nothing to compare it to. I would like to make some but I don’t have the recipe. Do they serve it at Pomaire? I am planning to go there. Also is there an easy way to make Manjar Blanco?

      Hi Dottie,
      Eventually we will get around to featuring Torta Mil Hojas and yes they do serve it in Pomaire, usually by the slice in most places. As to an easy way to make Manjar Blanco, at the moment I have no idea, I usually only see the brown version of it. Maybe one of the readers can help us out.
      Saludos,
      Rob W.
