Caramel Apple Enchiladas

This is a super easy dessert that is a fun way to end a Mexican themed dinner! The caramel sauce is a recipe I got from my friend Peggy when we lived in Arizona.

All you need is:

Apple Pie Filling (I made mine out of zuchinni that I adapted from this recipe. Just cook the filling in a saucepan and add a bit of cornstarch to thicken if you need to. Remember to add the cornstarch to cold liquid and stir until smooth before pouring into the hot filling.)

Flour Tortillas

Caramel Sauce (see recipe below)

Whipped Cream

Cinnamon sugar (opt)

Grease a casserole dish and preheat oven to 350.

Roll pie filling into the tortillas and place seam down in baking dish.
