Churro French Toast #MexicanRecipes

Our forays into Mexican cuisine are pretty boring and Americanized- quesadillas, tacos, fried ice cream.   I searched through the Taste of Home site hoping to be inspired and boom, there it was- Churro French Toast.  Been on a big french toast kick lately. It's something we all love and makes a nice filling meal.

The use of the pudding mix was interesting, and I'm always looking for ways to justify my pudding and gelatin collection.  The french toast cooked up so golden and beautiful, and then into the cinnamon sugar mix. 

I searched high and low for the Dulce du Leche.  No luck.   People recommended the can of sweetened condensed milk in the crock pot method (The manufacturers strongly advise against that), or told me to reduce it on the stove.   In the end, my husband saved the day by bringing home a can of Eagle Caramel Flavored Sweetened Condensed milk.    It's probably bad that I know no such a thing exists, because I've now plotted about 15 more uses for it.  It put that delicious french toast right over the top, but be warned, a little goes a long way!   Thank you to Kelli S for the recipe!
