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.
