Origin of churroSpanish
A thick fritter of fried dough that is often dipped in chocolate just before it is eaten.
Origin of churroSpanish, perhaps from churro, coarse, (sheep) having coarse wool, (one) speaking Spanish with an Aragonese accent (the fritter perhaps being so called because of its appearance or its possible place of origin), probably of Iberian origin; akin to Portuguese surro, uncleanliness, filth (as from sweat).
From Spanish churro.
