This is a traditional Chilean snack, or maybe an appetizer. The truth is that it's a snack eaten during winter time, especially when it rains. It is typical to arrive home after walking through the rainy streets of Santiago and sit down to have a cup of tea and eat a couple of sopaipillas. You can also eat ones sold by street vendors, but they usually don't taste as good as home-made ones. If you can't find zapallo, pumpkin is a good substitute.
Give sopaipillas some Chilean flavor using zapallo, a white-shelled squash with orange flesh. Boiled until soft, the squash is stirred into dough, which is rolled out and cut into circles then fried into crisp appetizers or snacks.
