8 chimichangas


  • 4 medium apples - peeled, cored, and sliced

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying, or as needed

  • 8 (6 inch) flour tortillas


  1. Place apples, sugar, water, butter, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until well blended, then cook, stirring frequently, until apples have softened and mixture has thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.

  3. While oil is heating, spoon some apple mixture onto each tortilla and roll up, tucking in the ends, like a burrito. Fry chimichangas in the hot oil until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Serve warm.
