Baked Apple Enchiladas

So, you've made yourself some apple pie filling, or cheated and bought some pre-made stuff, and now you're looking for ideas on how to use it?

How about these here Apple Enchiladas?  Crispy outsides, warm gooey insides...apple pie's delicious cousin.

When I was a kid, my mom would occasionally get apple enchiladas from Market Day.  They were frozen, and before that, I'm pretty sure they were deep fried, and all you had to do was stick them in the oven for a bit and voila - dessert.  But again, I'm a control freak, and I like to know what's in and what's been done to my food.

So I made my own.




Preheat your oven to 375.

Line a baking sheet with parchment.

Grab a dozen flour tortillas, your apple pie filling, and 2 tablespoons of butter.

Place a spoonful or two of the apple pie filling in a line about one third into the tortilla.  Then roll tightly from that side over, and place the rolled enchilada seam-side down on the baking sheet.


Repeat with all the others.

Melt the butter, then brush it over the enchiladas.


Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes, until the tortillas have some color and crisp to them.

Enjoy warm, but be careful of lava hot filling.  Best solution?  Serve them with some ice cream.  Cools things down, you know?
