Apple Enchiladas

These easy-to-make homemade apple enchiladas are healthy comfort food, hot from the oven!

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

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

If you like apple pie, you will love these wholesome apple enchiladas.

They remind me of apple blintzes, but are even better.

Serve them hot or cold for a delicious breakfast, or top each with homemade Coconut Ice Cream or Keto Ice Cream (or even this Oat Milk Ice Cream) for a healthy dessert.

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!

Beer

I’m going to stop with this list now.

Because, yikes.

Apple Enchiladas

These homemade apple enchiladas are healthy comfort food, hot from the oven.
5/5 (4)
Total Time 1 hour
Yield 4 enchiladas

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
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup or sugar (or scant 1/4 tsp uncut stevia)
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 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.

    Woot woot! Can’t wait to try these. I love all of your recipes!
    PS – I know you’re monetizing your website (which I totally get and support!), but lately it’s starting to get really slow and hard to open the recipe pages. Just thought I’d mention it, in case you’re not aware. <3

      Hmm that should definitely not be happening! How long has it been bad for you, and are you on mobile or desktop chrome or IE? Are you being redirected, or is it just slow?
