Cherry Chimichangas


  • 2 (21 ounce) cans cherry pie filling
  • Grated rind of 2 oranges
  • 6 (12 inch) flour tortillas
  • Slivered almonds
  • Confectioners' sugar


  1. Reserve one cup cherry pie filling for topping. Mix remaining pie filling with grated orange rind. Spoon onto centers of tortillas. Sprinkle a few almonds over pie filling. Fold in opposite sides of each tortilla and roll up, covering pie filling.
  2. In a large skillet heat one inch of oil over medium-high heat. Fry chimichangas, two at a time, seam-side down, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Sift confectioners' sugar over each chimichanga and top with remaining cherry pie filling and almonds before serving.
