Banana Split Chimichangas


  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small pieces
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 banana, peeled and quartered lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 to 3 cups vegetable oil
  • confectioners' sugar


  1. Combine chocolate, butter and cream in the top of a double boiler over simmering, not boiling water. Stir occasionally until all ingredients re melted and well combined. Set aside and allow to cool.
  2. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium high heat. Do not grease. Place tortillas over heat to soften enough to become pliable. Remove from heat and arrange 1 piece of banana, about 1/4 cup cooled chocolate mixture, 2 tablespoons nuts and 2 tablespoons ice cream off center on each tortilla. Brush inside edges of tortillas with beaten egg. Fold top edge of tortilla about a quarter of the way over filling. Repeat with bottom edge. Starting with the unfolded edge closest to the filling, roll into a shape like an egg roll. Freeze for several hours or overnight. Keep frozen until ready to serve.
  3. Just before serving, heat oil in a skillet or deep fryer to 400 degrees F. Place tortilla rolls in hot oil until golden brown on all sides, about 3 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve immediately.

Serves 4.
