Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas

You will want to savor each and every bite of this cake! I have the feeling this is a cake you’ll want to make as dessert for special occasions again and again!

  • INGREDIENTS :

For Chimichangas :

6 (8-inch) soft flour tortillas
8 oz cream cheese ( room temperature)
2 Tablespoon sour cream
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cups sliced strawberries
Vegetable oil-for frying

For Coating :

1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar

  • DIRECTIONS :

Start by beating cream cheese , sour cream, 1 tablespoon sugar and vanilla extract .

Fold in 3/4 cup of sliced fresh strawberries.

Divide the mixture evenly between 6 tortillas. When finished, slather the filling in the lower third of each tortilla, fold the two sides of each tortilla toward the center and then roll the tortilla up like a burrito (secure it with a toothpicks!) .

In a shallow bowl, combine 1/3 cup sugar with 1 tablespoon cinnamon; set aside.

Line a large plate with paper towels.

Place in about 5 inch deep saucepan about 2 -2½ inch vegetable oil for frying and heat it over medium-high heat until it reaches 360?F.

Fry the chimichangas for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and crispy and flip them as needed (work in batches)

You’d better transfer the chimichangas to the paper towel on a plate to drain for about 1 minute, then roll them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Please make sure to remove all toothpicks from the chimichangas!!!
