Tortillas to the Rescue
I am a huge fan of the tortilla! Good for wrapping up a sandwich, some Tex-Mex fajitas or a simple melted cheese quesadilla. They stay good for a long time in the fridge if you keep them well sealed and come in whole wheat for a little added nutrition.

I recently received the cookbook Tortillas to the Rescue: Scrumptious Snacks, Mouth-Watering Meals and Delicious Desserts–All Made with the Amazing Tortilla to review and honestly had never considered the tortilla as a desert item until now.
Churro Style Tortillas with Mexican Chocolate Dipping Sauce
This recipe is super easy and was a HUGE hit with the family. Who wouldn’t like crunchy, sweet tortillas dipped in chocolate, right? The original recipe said to fry the tortillas in butter but I am way too lazy a cook to stand there that long so I baked them instead and they came out great!
If not everyone likes their chocolate spicy just take a small portion of it out of the pan before adding a bit of a cayenne kick!
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 TBSP light corn syrup
- 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon (divided)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 TBSP sugar
- 2-4 TBSP melted butter (or more as needed)
- 4 to 6 small tortillas cut into strips
- In a small saucepan add the heavy cream, chocolate chips, and corn syrup. Heat over low heat until melted and smooth. Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon, vanilla, and cayenne pepper. Cover with foil to keep warm.
- For the tortilla strips: Place the strips in a large bowl and drizzle with melted butter. mix well and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon and sugar. Toss gently until evenly coated.
- Dump the tortilla strips onto 2 baking sheets and bake in a 325 degree oven for 20 minutes, turning with a spatula 3 or 4 times to cook evenly. When light brown and crispy remove from the oven to cool
- Place the tortilla strips in a serving bowl and serve with a small bowl of the chocolate sauce for dipping!
