Ingredients

  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 6 flour tortillas 8-inch size
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon sugar 1/2 cup sugar+2 teaspoons cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat 2-3 inches of oil to 350°F in a saucepan or deep fryer. Line a large plate with paper towel and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, lemon zest and vanilla. Beat until smooth and then fold in the sliced strawberries.
  • Lay a flour tortilla on a work surface. Spread a large spoonful of cheesecake filling onto the lower third of the tortilla. Roll up the tortilla as if it were a burrito, tucking in the edges. Then seal with a toothpick to hold it all together. Repeat for remaining five tortillas.
  • Using kitchen tongs, carefully place one chimichanga into the hot oil. Deep fry for 3-4 minutes until golden, turning occasionally for even browning. Remove to the prepared plate and repeat for the remaining chimichangas.
  • Add the cinnamon sugar to a plate. Then roll each chimichanga in it to coat before serving.
