Apple Enchiladas

Homemade apple enchiladas, comfort food hot from the oven!

Apple Pie Enchiladas, serve hot or cold for breakfast or dessert

Just 8 ingredients, and they’re vegan and oil-free!

If you like apple pie, you will love these wholesome apple enchiladas. They remind me of apple blintzes, but are so much better!

Serve them hot or cold for a delicious breakfast, or top each with homemade Coconut Ice Cream or Keto Ice Cream for a healthy dessert.

Apple Pie Enchiladas Recipe

I also topped mine with homemade Coconut Caramel Sauce.

It was basically like eating a giant caramel apple covered in creamy vanilla ice cream and stuffed into a warm tortilla.

And while I know apples are normally a winter dessert, eating these enchiladas always makes me think of a summer fair. They’d be perfectly at home alongside other typical fair foods like funnel cakes, popcorn, corn dogs, and deep fried oreos.

Or whatever they’re deep frying these days.

When I lived in Texas, I learned that pretty much any food you could possibly imagine can be deep fried.

Apple Enchiladas

Anyway, but these apple enchiladas are BAKED, not fried.

Sorry, Texas.

This is culinary fusion at its finest. The hot-from-the-oven apple enchiladas give you all the cinnamony goodness of hot apple pie stuffed securely into a tortilla and baked to a bubbly perfection.

While traditional apple enchilada recipes can call for up to an entire cup of sugar and a large amount of butter, this version has been lightened up considerably, making it a delicious indulgence for dessert or breakfast.

For the optimum dessert-enchilada experience, don’t forget the ice cream!

P.S. In case you were curious, here’s a list of some of the weirdest deep fried things to come out of Texas:

Coca Cola

Fruit Loops

Chicken Noodle Soup On A Stick (I have no idea…)

Beer

PBJ Sandwiches

Texas Sheet Cake

Butter (Yes, deep fried butter)

Bubblegum

Kool-Aid

Mashed Potatoes

Grasshoppers

I’m going to stop with this list now.

Because, yikes.

Easy Apple Pie Breakfast Enchiladas Recipe

Adapted from Healthy Apple Pie

Apple Enchiladas

Total Time: 1h
Yield: 4 enchiladas
Print This Recipe 5/5
Apple Enchiladas
5/53

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups chopped apples (about 4 1/2 small apples)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot
  • scant 1/4 tsp uncut stevia OR 1/2 cup pure maple syrup or sugar of choice
  • 1 cup apple juice (I used all-natural)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • four 8-inch soft tortillas, gf or keto tortillas if desired

Instructions

Place 2 cups of the chopped apples in a medium saucepan with the water. Bring to a boil, then cook on low heat for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, combine remaining 2 1/2 cups apple with all other ingredients in a blender, and blend until completely smooth. After the 8 minutes, add the blender contents to the saucepan and bring to a boil again. Once it begins to boil again, turn heat to low. Cook 30 minutes, stirring very occasionally (about 3-4 times). Let cool, then put in the refrigerator, uncovered. Wait at least 4 hours before proceeding with the rest of the recipe, as this filling will thicken as it cools. For the apple enchiladas: Preheat oven to 400F, and lightly grease an 8-in square pan. Portion about 1/3 cup of filling in the middle of each of 4 tortillas, roll up, then stick into the pan (seam-side down). Cover with the remaining sauce. Bake 28 minutes. Serve warm or cold, with ice cream of choice.

    Oh my goodness Katie! These look incredible. They were one of the first posts to show up in my blog reader this morning and as soon as I saw the picture I just clicked… Didn’t even check to see who they were from. But I should have known 😉

  2. Miss Polkadot says

    Apples, cinnamon and maple drizzle? Amazing. Coincidentally apple crumble’s been on my mind for the past days so these look like just another awesome idea. If only I could find non-sketchy ingredient-laden tortillas over here …

  3. Kelly @ hidden fruits and veggies says

    I have a recipe for baked apple pie egg rolls that I love, but I’ve never seen apple enchiladas before! I don’t really like pie crust, so this sounds like another great way to get an apple pie flavor without the crust especially when topped with a scoop of ice cream!

  4. [email protected] OmNom Love says

    These look amazing! Coincidentally, I had a breakfast almost exactly like this, this morning. Except I used a crepe instead of a tortilla and put cream cheese in the middle as well as apple filling. Can’t wait to try this recipe, seeing as how I have tons of apples to use up.

  5. Andrea says

    This looks really delicious! Please take no offense by this, but being of Mecican descent, i thought I would clear up what “enchilada,” really means, it’s pretty much anything drenched in a chili sauce. So, I would have to say this is more like a burrito or a “relleno” which means stuffed. Hope this helps. 🙂

    • Liz says

      Ah but the definition has changed over the years as different varieties have emerged. Now there are Enchiladas suizas (white sauce) and Entomatadas (tomato sauce). And now apple sauce!

      • Andrea says

        Yes, the varieties have changed over time, however; “enchiladas,” have still remained the same, they have always contained chile. Entomatadas and Suizas as you suggest still have chile in the recipe, hence why they are a variation of enchiladas.

          I was actually thinking empanadas. But to be that does it need to be an enclosed pocket? I love apple empanadas, so I thought of this recipe that way. It took 4 times of reading it before I realized she called it enchiladas, lol. I was kinda just excited for this recipe 🙂

  6. Lisa says

    These look so amazing!!
    I love that you took enchiladas and made them sweet, such a great idea. And now that Fall is on its way the apple flavor is spot on.

  7. Justin says

    yummm these look fantastic! I recently got a juicer and can totally make my own apple juice for this…and also make your detox drink more easily…:)

  8. Abbie @ Needs Salt says

    Wow, these look so delicious! I don’t need convincing. I want them in my life. haha! 🙂
    I love how you lightened up the recipe and used stevia instead of sugar. I need some of that ice cream, too!
    Gorgeous recipe and photos.
    Pinned! 🙂

  9. Alanna says

    OMG, these look amazing! Just curious which type of apples you used (or recommend) for these? I know some varieties are better suited to baking than others and I’m always overwhelmed by the choices this time of year, lol.
