Apple ”Enchilada”

Certainly! Here’s a simple recipe for Apple “Enchiladas”:


For the Filling:

  • 4 medium-sized apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 small flour tortillas (6-inch size)
  • Additional cinnamon-sugar for sprinkling (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the sliced apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender but not mushy, about 5-7 minutes. Stir in the chopped nuts if using. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine the ingredients for the sauce: 1/2 cup butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, water, and vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugars are dissolved and the sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Spoon a portion of the apple filling onto each flour tortilla, then roll them up tightly. Place the rolled tortillas seam-side down in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Pour the prepared sauce evenly over the rolled tortillas in the baking dish.
  6. If desired, sprinkle additional cinnamon-sugar over the top of the enchiladas for extra flavor.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the enchiladas are heated through and the sauce is bubbly and caramelized.
  8. Remove from the oven and let the enchiladas cool slightly before serving.
  9. Serve warm, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
  10. Enjoy your delicious Apple “Enchiladas”!
