Enchiladas are popular Mexican dish that is made by stuffing vegetables and baked beans in corn tortillas, enchilada sauce and cheese added to it and then baked in oven. While that is savoury enchilada there is sweet version too, which usually uses fruits in the stuffing.

I’m using apples here. You can easily substitute with peaches or cherries. Sweet apple enchiladas with cinnamon powder, butter and sugar in it makes it a rich delicious dessert. The aroma that fills the house when you bake this enchilada is divine.

Serve Apple Enchilada after your meal as a dessert or as a tea time snack with a hot cup of coffee.
