Cinnamon Apple Enchiladas

These Cinnamon Apple Enchiladas are drenched in syrup with a slightly crisp top - so easy, so delicious !

Soft, syrup drenched bottoms with a crisp baked top and even more syrup drizzled over after baking !

These Cinnamon Apple Enchiladas are delicious! Most definitely a dessert which will be served over and over again in our home.

After baking, the tops of the Enchiladas were nice and crispy. I drizzled some of the sauce over and served it with loads of lightly sweetened whipped cream.

This is a quick and easy recipe and no one will even suspect the prepping/baking and decorating took around 30 minutes.  I used canned tart/pie apples - there is no liquid to drain, it's all just packed with soft sliced pieces of apple. I mention this, as I used the same kind before and had a few readers asking me whether to drain the apples or not.  Well, I have never used or seen cans of Tart Apples which needed to be drained in our usual stores.

Therefore, if you do need to drain the kind you're using, you will have to use larger cans or an extra can. As long as you have around 600 - 700 grams of apple pieces.

There is also no need to add Sugar to the Apples before rolling up, the Cinnamon will give enough flavor and the syrup provides all the sweetness you need for a totally decadent dessert.

source; Allrecipes

10 - 12 Servings


2 cans (385g each) Pie Apples
6 Large Tortillas
1 t Cinnamon + extra to sprinkle
1/3 cup Butter
1/2 cup White Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 cup Water
Whipped Cream, to serve


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with cooking spray.
2.) Divide the Apple Pieces between the 6 Tortillas - place in the center of each Tortilla - sprinkle with the 1 teaspoonful Cinnamon - roll up the Tortillas and pack tightly into the prepared oven dish - I had my seams facing upwards and kept everything together with a toothpick.
3.) Bring the Butter, White and Brown Sugar and the Water to the boil - boil for 3 minutes - pour over the Enchiladas.
4.) Bake for 20 minutes until crispy on top - using a spoon drizzle some of the syrup over the tops two or three times during baking.
Serve with Whipped Cream and a dusting of extra Cinnamon.

Enjoy - this is a keeper  !
