While my best apple pie recipe is always a classic, sometimes you want something just a little bit different. For a fun twist on apple pies, you need to try these Apple Pie Enchiladas!

Apple Pie Enchiladas AKA Mexican Apple Pies are a super easy and fun twist on a classic apple pie recipe

Easy Apple Pie Recipe

My love for all things enchilada is well established, and I love experimenting with new versions.

I’ve tried white enchiladas, crockpot enchiladas, enchilada dip, etc etc, but I had not yet tried dessert enchiladas!

These apple pie enchiladas are often called “Mexican Apple Pies” on dessert menus, and for an even more indulgent take on this recipe, you could definitely make it with pre-made pie crust.

I took it easy and used flour tortillas (which is how I’ve had them at restaurants). I think corn tortillas would be too savoury – but if you decide to give them a try, please come back and let me know how they turned out!

I made these apple pie enchiladas with my daycare kids and while it got a bit messy, we all had a blast, and then enjoyed eating our “apple pie pockets” a la mode.

How to Make Dessert Enchiladas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a 7×11 baking dish.

Spoon about 1/3 cup of the pie filling off center into each tortilla and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Roll up, making sure to tuck in the edges, and place seam side down into the baking dish.

In a medium saucepan, bring both sugars, butter, and water to a boil.

Reduce the heat, and simmer for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Pour over the enchiladas and sprinkle with extra cinnamon if desired. Let stand for 30-45 minutes (This allows for the sauce to soak into the tortillas).

Bake in oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. I also placed mine under the broiler for a few minutes after baking to get a deeper golden color.

Serve with ice cream or whipped cream!
