Chocolate Coconut Filled Tortilla Turnovers


  • 10 Mission Fajita Size Flour Tortillas
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup coconut, shredded
  • 1 egg beaten with 2 teaspoons water
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels


  1. Melt the chocolate in a Pyrex cup over simmering water or in the microwave (microwave chocolate at 50% power for 2 minutes. Stir. If not melted, microwave for 1 minute more at 50% power). Mix in a bowl with the walnuts and the coconut.
  2. Place 1/4 cup mixture in the center of a tortilla, spreading slightly into a circle. Moisten the edges of the tortillas with the egg wash and fold each one over into a half-moon, pressing around the edge.
  3. Heat 1 inch vegetable oil in an 8-inch skillet and fry each turnover until golden on both sides. Remove with a slotted spatula and drain on absorbent paper.
  4. Put confectioners' sugar in a sieve. When the turnovers are cool enough to touch, sprinkle with the sugar.
  5. Serve warm.
