Kid-Approved Apple Pie Enchiladas

I love Apple Pie and so do my kids! I just don’t love the process of actually making the Apple Pie. It takes far too long when you have an almost two year old hanging on your legs begging for a snack. So when I saw a recipe for making Apple Pockets I decided to give it a whirl. I tweaked some things to make the dish out of ingredients I had on hand and it turned out fantastic! The kids ate every single bite and begged for more! 

6 Flour Tortillas (8 inch)
1 can (21oz) Apple Pie Filling
2 t ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup water


1.  Spread apple pie filling on plate and cut apples into bite size pieces.

2. Lay tortillas flat and evenly spoon apple pie filling over top of each.

3. Sprinkle cinnamon evenly over top of fruit filling on each tortilla.

4. Roll up each tortilla and place seam side down in a greased baking dish. I used a 9×9 glass dish.

5. Combine brown sugar, white sugar, butter and water in a saucepan.

6. Bring mixture to a boil. The reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.

7. Pour sauce mixture evenly over top of tortillas, reserving a little to pour over ice cream. 

8. Sprinkle with more cinnamon, if desired.

9. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.











Doesn’t that look fantastic? Look at all those warm apples!


 Serve with vanilla ice cream or caramel sauce….or both! Yum. I won’t tell you how many I ate, you will think less of me.

    Yum! These sound fantastic! I bet they’re no where near as heavy as apple pie, either. Pinned – can’t wait to try. :)

    This looks great! I’m pinning it though I want to eat it right now. Visiting from Home Stories. I linked up the Perfect Omelette in a Bag today. It’s the easiest, most fun omelette you’ll ever have!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/11668699397851882212 Kathy Olson

    I am definitely going to try this! Sometimes I don’t want a whole pie, just a little bit of one. Keep up the good work:)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/07224915019292403537 Sherry

    A must try for sure! These look so yummy and definitely easier than homemade pie.

    What a wonderful idea!!! I am definitely going to try these, thank you!

    What a fun idea to make dessert enchiladas!!! I love it!!! I always love how easy they are to put together:-)

  • http://thecookssister.wordpress.com/ Amber @ The Cook’s Sister

    Wow, this is one of the best enchilada recipes I’ve ever come across! We love having chicken enchiladas for dinner, so we always have a ton of tortillas around. I just might have to try this as soon as apples are in season!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02543183653921405114 Aramelle {One Wheeler’s World}

    YUM! You can think less of me if you want…I can nearly guarantee that I’d eat half that pan by myself.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/04968250671087385396 Delilah Love

      Believe me, I do not think less of you. I’m ashamed to tell you how many I ate. Haha!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/18395598913393994830 @dkotucker

    Ouuuuuu…nummers!!! Love the idea of using tortillas as opposed to crepes (which I do not do). Thanks for sharing.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/04968250671087385396 Delilah Love

      I have the worst luck with crepes. I’ve stopped using them to save myself the frustration. The tortillas were super easy to work with!

    Oh Yum! The more I scrolled…the more I drooled! Awesome dish – thanks so much for linking up at Weekend Potluck.

    looks wonderful! I asked you this once before, then forgot – how do you get the photo slideshow on the right side of your blog? Do you need instagram to do it? I don’t have that. Thank you!

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/04968250671087385396 Delilah Love

      I use snapwidget.com but I think it’s specifically for Instagram. If you’re on blogger you can use the slideshow widget in the layout menu.

    Oh Em Gee. This looks amazing. I thank you. However, my tight shorts after consuming 42 of these, does NOT thank you.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/04968250671087385396 Delilah Love

      Tell me about it. My shorts are much tighter now. I swear I hate half the pan by myself.

      It was so good! Husband approved and I swear he licked the plate. Haha!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/14214160428759882271 Francie @ Escovedo Escapades

    Wow! That looks really yummy. I’ll have to try it. I always have tortillas in the house. Have you tried the apple dumpling recipe that uses Mountain Dew and canned cresent rolls? It’s easy as well, and really good.

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/04968250671087385396 Delilah Love

      I have not tried that one yet but I really want to!
