Preparation:

Put water, salt and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil; once the mix is boiling, add the flour all at once and stir well until the dough comes away easily from the sides of the pan. Remove from heat, and add both eggs, one at a time, until well combined.

Place dough in a pastry bag with a mid-sized star tip.

Heat the oil in a clean pot; once it's ready, squeeze the pastry bag and carefully drop strips of dough into the oil, cutting it with a knife to release from the bag. Fry until golden brown on all sides.

Place fried dough on a paper towel to absorb excess oil, and roll around in sugar.

Once you've made the churros, proceed to fill them with dulce de leche.

To do that, place dulce de leche in a pastry bag with a plain narrow tip, put the tip inside each end of the churros and squeeze until they're filled.
