Triangle Buns?

  • k

Has anyone ever heard of triangle buns?? I had them years ago at a friend's house, and they were absolutely delicious. The buns are tortilla-like, triangular, hollow, and served with chili. The eating method involves ripping off one of the corners of the bun, and scooping chili inside to create a chili-stuffed 'hotpocket'. Anyway, if anyone knows the recipe for the buns I would totally appreciate it being posted. Thanks!!

  1. Your description reminds me of sopapillas. I wonder if "triangle buns" could be the same thing?
