A 3/4-ingredient dessert recipe, super simple and fairly quick: fruit chimichangas.

The recipe is simple: roll a little burrito with fruit pie filling, fry it, and roll it in cinnamon sugar. Serve with ice cream, or just monch


  • Can of pie filling
    • Peach is good, but mild
    • Apple is a crowd favorite
  • Medium tortillas
  • cinnamon sugar
  • Toothpicks & vegetable oil (for frying)


  1. If desired, prep the pie filling by simmering with brown sugar or extra cinnamon
  2. Roll about 1-2 spoons of filling into a tortilla. Fold over about 1/3, fold in the sides, then fold the other 1/3
  3. Secure with a toothpick
  4. Fry in hot oil until deep golden brown
  5. let cool to touch; remove the toothpick
  6. roll in cinnamon sugar


Each person will eat 1-2, maybe more. They make good finger food, but can also be served with light ice cream.
