More About This Recipe

  • Don’t know what to make as a sweet ending to your Mexican meal? These Apple Enchiladas will have you shouting, “Ole!”

    I always have lingering tortillas in my kitchen and found the perfect dessert to use those up. This dessert is super easy as uses ingredients that you might already have in your kitchen.

    Apple Enchiladas are tortillas filled with cream cheese and warm apple filling, all smothered in a light caramel topping. Yum.

    All you have to do is take a tortilla and spread a little sweetened cream cheese down the center.  Top that with some apple pie filling.

    You could use fresh apples here but then you would have to peel, core, and chop the apples and that’s just way too much work in my book! Besides, when I need a quick dessert I don’t want to have to wait for the apples to bake. Apple pie filling is already sweet, tender, and ready to be eaten in these enchiladas with a fraction of the work.

    The enchiladas bake in a light caramel syrup until golden brown. Don’t burn your mouth like I did trying to bite into these babies straight out of the oven. Serve them warm with a scoop of ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    You will wow your friends and family with these and they don’t have to know that they were ridiculously easy!
