Ingredients

  • 21 oz 1 can apple pie filling
  • 8 flour tortillas 8-inch diameter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • oil for frying
  • caramel sauce see NOTES

Instructions

  • Heat about 1/2-inch of oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat until oil reaches 350℉
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl; set aside.
  • To make tortillas more pliable, place the stack of 8 between 2 paper towels and sprinkle towels with about 1 tsp water. Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds.
  • Place about 1/4 cup of the pie filling in the center of each tortilla. Roll up egg-roll style. Secure end with a toothpick. Repeat for remaining tortillas.
  • Fry 2-3 chimichangas at a time, about 3-4 minutes each side until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • Repeat for remaining chimichangas.
  • Roll warm chimichangas in cinnamon sugar. Serve with caramel sauce if desired.

Notes

Store-bought caramel ice cream sauce may be used. To make your own, mix 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup unsalted butter & 1/4 cup light cream or half-n-half in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sauce boils; boil for 3-4 minutes. For a thinner sauce, add more cream.
