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.

How to Make Caramel Apple Pie Taquitos

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.
