    Fruit Filled Chimichangas W/ Cinnamon Custard Sauc

    Jean Ann Mattias from Tucson, AZ

    Wow what a tasty dessert. The custard sauce adds just a special touch. Being from the southwest, I have had many savory chimis. This is the first sweet Chimi that I have tried. I will do this again. Only problem is the obvious high calorie content.

    Good Recipe

    Amanda B. from Missouri

    This was a very tasty and easy recipe. I cut them in half since they are little large for dessert. Everyone at the party loved them. I think next time I am going to use more fruit and less nuts though.

    Charming Chimi!

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    We did a Tex-Mex themed "supper" and I pulled these off for dessert. Eveyone raved! Now they want to do a Chimi supper!

    Dreamy Chimichangas

    tiffin crowder from VALPARAISO, IN

    These are simply a delight! They are not a lot of work and always fly off the table at dessert time! The aroma of cinnamon is always a plus in my home, and the fruit filling is great because you can add different fruits if desired.

    hmmm

    CHRISTY MOEGELIN from LOMPOC, CA

    I wasn't able to find the specified dried fruit, so I substitued dried pineapple and dried mango. I'm not sure if it was because of the substitution, but mine took a lot longer to cook than the recipe had claimed. They ended up being sweet enough to enjoy without the sauce.

    I Ate The Whole Thing!

    LaTonya Powell from SANGER, CA

    I made some of these the same night that I downloaded the recipe, and supposedly I fixed two for me and two for my Room mate. Before I knew anything I had eaten all four of them that night. These were absolutely scrumptious, my roommate have to wait until next time to try them! I felt like such a glutton, but my ice cold glass of Soy Milk made that go away! The recipe was extremely easy to prepare and most people have all of the ingredients on hand all the time if they like to cook. I always keep fruit and both kinds of tortillas on hand because they are so useful in preparing quick snacks and meals. Now that I've tried this recipe I will know exactly how to tweak it the next time, in case I want something a little different. :-)

    These chimichangas are the most delicious, tasty dessert we've had in a while. They are a little time consuming but well worth the effort. Surprise you family with these fun fruit filled chimichangas. Good with or without the custard sauce. My husband went wild for them. We had them after a Mexican dinner. Thanks to the contributor for such a wonderful, spicy and tasty dessert. A winner!!

    We have used fresh apples that we fried. This is more impressive, I also think the sauce would be good on bread pudding.

    The ingredients are basic and easily assessable, even in our rural setting. I am anxious to try this new twist to serve fruit, tortillas and custard for visiting children during the Christmas Holiday week.
