Apple Cinnamon Chimichangas


Chimichangas for dessert? Swap out the traditional savory filling of rice, beans, and meat for sweet apple pie filling, then roll the deep-fried bundles in cinnamon sugar and drizzle with honey if desired.

15 chimichangas


  • 1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling

  • ½ cup cinnamon sugar

  • 15 (6 inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 ½ cups oil for frying

  • 15 toothpicks


  1. Heat apple pie filling in a small pot over medium-low heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes.

  2. Place cinnamon sugar in a shallow dish.

  3. Spoon 1 1/2 tablespoons filling into the center of each tortilla. Fold the sides in and over filling, then roll up like a burrito. Use a toothpick to secure.

  4. Heat oil in a large, deep saucepan over medium heat.

  5. Working in batches, fry tortillas, seam-side down, in hot oil until browned and crispy, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Blot on paper towels. Remove toothpicks and roll chimichangas in cinnamon sugar to coat.
