Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 10 mins
– 8 flour tortillas
– 8 oz Challenge Strawberry Cream Cheese Spread
– 1 cup chocolate spread (Nutella, Hershey’s, etc)
– 1 pound fresh strawberries, trimmed and sliced
– 2 tbsp butter
– ½ cup granulated sugar
– 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Step 1: Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow plate or bowl. Set aside
Step 2: Spread two tablespoons of the strawberry cream cheese down the center of each tortilla.
Step 3: Divide strawberries equally and place on top of the cream cheese.
Step 4: Top with two tablespoons of chocolate spread.
Step 5: Fold the two sides of the tortilla in and roll up just like a burrito.
Step 6: Heat butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat.
Step 7: Place chimichangas seam side down and fry just until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Brush the ends of the chimichanga and any parts that did not get browned with additional melted butter. (This will help the cinnamon-sugar mixture to stick.)
Step 8: Roll the chimichangas in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until fully coated.
Step 9: Drizzle with additional chocolate if desired.
Serve immediately or refrigerate.
