This household enjoys a good dessert. We also favor anything wrapped up in a tortilla. Enter in to our world Apple Enchiladas. Apple pie filling, wrapped in flour tortillas and covered in a super easy caramel sauce.
Apple enchiladas are a super easy, sweet treat. All they take is a few minutes of prep work before a quick bake in the oven. They are delicious. Like I’m talking life changing.
- 2 cans of apple pie filling
- 8-12 flour tortillas (depending on size)
Warm tortillas in the microwave so they are easily pliable. In ours it was a quick 30 second spin. Times will vary.
Fill tortillas with apple pie filling. Be careful not to overfill so it can still be rolled. I like to tuck my ends in then roll the tortilla. Making a neat little packet. Arrange in a greased 9×13 pan.
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- Cinnamon to taste (I use around 2 teaspoons)
Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium sized sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Boil until mixture begins to slightly thicken (1-2 minutes). Immediately pour over prepared apple enchiladas.
Ok, now if you have self control, they are best if you allow them to sit for an hour. This allows the tortillas to soak in the carmel-ly goodness. That being said I have no self control. I pop them in the oven immediately the vast majority of the time…
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. The tops of the tortillas will begin to lightly brown.
I like to serve these with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Both equally as delicious! And a tasty side note: these are even better the next morning after sitting in the fridge overnight. Not that I would recommend dessert for breakfast or anything….
