Fruit Filled Chimichangas W/ Cinnamon Custard Sauc

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

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!

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

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.
