I am sure you have seen these all over facebook and so on, and my only claim to fame is I did change mine a wee bit.The original recipe calls for water but really how much flavor is in water? Plus the only ones I have seen are apple and peach, and you are only limited by your own mind. If there is not a canned pie filling to use well shoot just make your own, you can do anything from mango to kiwi. I am not real sure about watermelon, I don't eat it but if you can thicken it you can make it.

Ingredients

1 (21) oz

8
(8 inch) round flour tortillas
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 c
butter
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c

1/2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Butter a 9x13 inch casserole dish. Seperate your tortillas.
2
Spoon about one heaping quarter cup of pie filling evenly down the center of each tortilla.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and any additional seasoning; roll up, tucking in edges; and place seam side down in prepared dish.
3
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar and sprite. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes. Stir in flavoring of choice or omit if desired. Pour sauce over enchiladas and let stand 45 minutes.
4
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 20 minutes, or until golden. Serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or a bourbon butter sauce.

Note* On the pie fillings, lucky leaf is what I have access to, the premium seems to have a lot more fruit but they are not always available so, I will add about 1/2 can of additional fruit such as peach slices. I also dice all the fruits so they are easier to fold and cut.

As for seasonings and flavorings, you can certainly individualize these, when I do berries I usually only put in a bit of nutmeg and use almond flavorings. For Apple, I like to use cinnamon and a bit of ginger and nutmeg, then I add a wee bit of maple. Peach I use cinnamon and cloves an a bit of vanilla. Cherry, I completely omit spices and sprinkle the top with a coarse sugar and add almond flavoring to the sauce. If you do not have what you like then make what you like, I have made mango and sweet potato.
