How To Make Strawberry Chimichangas

via Hallmark Channel

In a saucepan or deep fryer on your stove, preheat around 2 inches of frying oil. You want the temperature to reach 350F (180C).

Line a plate with paper towels and set it aside. This will be where you place your chimichangas after they have been deep-fried.

In a bowl combine your cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla. Beat your ingredients until you have achieved a nice smooth consistency and then fold your strawberries through the mixture.

On a clean work surface, lay out your tortillas (6 inches) and on the lower part of your tortilla, spread a good amount of the mixture.

Roll up your tortilla and secure it with a toothpick. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

Place a 6-inch flour tortilla on a work surface. Spread the cheesecake onto the lower third of the tortilla.

Now it’s time to deep fry. In order to achieve a nice golden brown color, lower carefully into the oil and deep fry for 3-4 minutes.

Remove carefully and pop on the paper towel-lined plate. Allow excess oil to be absorbed and then dip and roll in Cinnamon Sugar.
