For the Apple Filling:

  • 4 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples (such as Granny Smith)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

For the Enchiladas:

  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (for rolling the enchiladas)

For the Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Preparing the Apple Filling:

  • In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat.
  • Add sliced apples, granulated sugar, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and lemon juice.
  • Cook until the apples are tender and the sugars have caramelized, stirring occasionally. This may take about 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Assembling the Enchiladas:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • In a shallow bowl, combine 1/2 cup granulated sugar for rolling the enchiladas.
  • Place a tortilla on a clean surface, brush it with melted butter, and sprinkle some of the sugar over it.
  • Spoon a portion of the apple filling onto the center of the tortilla.
  • Roll up the tortilla and place it seam side down in a baking dish.
  • Repeat this process for all tortillas.

3. Making the Sauce:

  • In a saucepan, melt 1/2 cup of butter over medium heat.
  • Add brown sugar, water, ground cinnamon, and salt. Stir until the sugar is dissolved, and the sauce is smooth.
  • Pour the sauce over the rolled enchiladas in the baking dish.

4. Baking:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the enchiladas are golden and the sauce is bubbling.

5. Serving:

  • Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
  • Optional: Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra treat.
