I've been serving my Dad along with the entire family "Enchilada" meals every 2 weeks or so. His first meal was on Father's Day for a great start off for 12 enchilada dinners. I know he loves apple pie and so this just had to be the first dessert that we started out with. He loved them!! Some had 2 while others of us only indulged in only one with ice cream of course.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Apples with cinnamon sugar drizzled with caramel and wrapped in a crispy tortilla... yes, please! What is there not to love about this easy and delicious dessert? Top it off with some vanilla ice cream and you have a dessert fit for a king.

Ingredients

4-5 medium
apples, granny smith, diced small
1/2 stick
butter, divided
1/4 c
apple jelly
2 tsp
cinnamon
caramel sauce
12 small
tortilla shells, flour (6 inch)

TOPPING FOR THE TAQUITOS & SERVE WITH

1-2 Tbsp
butter, melted
2 Tbsp
sugar
1 1/2 tsp
cinnamon
ice cream, vanilla
chocolate sauce, (optional)
more caramel sauce, heat this up

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dice up your apples with or without skin on and then saute in a pan with 1/4 stick of butter. Once cooked down & softened add your apple jelly & cinnamon.
2
Take your flour tortillas and place a few in a damp towel and microwave for about 10 seconds or so... just to soften them up and make easy to roll. Drizzle just a little caramel sauce down the center of tortilla and add about 1-2 tablespoons of apple mixture & then roll up.
3
Melt down the other 1/4 cup of butter in your pan that you are going to cook them in. Place your rolled apple taquitos in pan tightly up against one another. Once finished brush a little melted butter on to the tortillas and add your blended cinnamon/sugar mixture for the topping. You want these to cook so they get a crispy on the outside and nicely heated throughout. About 20 minutes on 350 degrees.
