With all the delicious Fall apples in season, there’s so many recipes I want to make with them. Here’s my first of many that I’m sharing with you – Apple Pie Chimichangas with Salted Caramel Sauce.
I had my first chimichangas about a month ago at one of our local restaurants while out with a bunch of girlfriends. Before I ordered them I had never heard of chimichangas and I was happy that the menu explained what the were. The ones I ordered were filled with Mexican braised shredded chicken and then smothered in fresh tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. They were so good that I’ve been craving them ever since.
First thing I needed to make, though, were these Apple Pie Chimichangas. My oldest son loves apple pie and since apples are in season I wanted to make these for him. I made the filling like I would for an apple pie, spread that into some tortillas, fried them up, rolled them in cinnamon-sugar and smothered them in Salted Caramel Sauce.
In my opinion these are way better than apple pie. My son also thought they were pretty awesome but he’ll never say they’re better than apple pie (his Nanny’s apple pie, anyway).
