Make the Mexican Fried Ice Cream authentic for me please?

I have to make a Spanish-speaking culture dish and on the last minute I changed mine up to the Mexican Fried Ice Cream. I researched on Mexican Fried Ice Cream and most of them say it is not a "traditional" dish but more of a "adaptation" or varient. That may take some points off of my total score but if I can argue that it IS a Spanish-speaking dish then that would be helpful! Prepare me an arguement that Mexican Fried Ice cream is a Spanish-speaking dish.

    I'm sorry, but it isn't a truly Mexican dish. If it were, I think I would be able to buy it at taquerias or taco trucks. It is generally only served in heavily Americanized Mexican restaurants. Of course Ice Cream of any kind isn't traditional food in Mexico, because it doesn't get cold enough to make it without modern technology.

    Also, how are you going to do this? Are you bringing a cooler and a deep fryer to your class? If you do it at home, it's going to melt by the time you do your presentation.

    Some authentic foods that would work a lot better:

    Corn tortillas

    Beans and rice

    Tamales

    Jarritos soda

    Chorizo

    Empanadas

    Taquitos
