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! 
 
 
 
 Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.

  • 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!

  • 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:)

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

  • 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!

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

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

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

    • 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.

    • Haha! I was pacing back and forth in front of the oven waiting for the timer to ding. They were so good!

  • what an incredible idea! LOVE it

    • Thanks Michelle. They were delicious and so easy to make!

  • Apple pie enchiladas…yes please!!!

  • 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!

    • 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.

  • I’ve seen something similar to this, but never tried it. Yours look amazing, wow! I host a Tuesday food part that I would love for you to join!

  • These look absolutely delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!

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

  • This looks amazing. Thanks for sharing the recipe, can’t wait to try it!

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

  • 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.

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

  • Oooh, now see THIS looks like something I can pull off! Not too many ingredients or steps. Delicious, thank you for sharing!! I’m hungry for apples now. Mmmmm!
