If you LOVE chimichangas, then these Mexican Cheesecake Chimichangas will send you over the edge! These look super-impressive but are surprisingly easy to make.
The word “chimichanga” is supposed to be the Spanish equivalent of “thing-a-ma-jig.” This dessert “thing-a-ma-jig” from Palatable Pastime also known as a “Xango,” has got it all. It’s the whole enchilada (yes, I went there) - a crunchy fried tortilla shell, covered with a mix of cinnamon, cocoa, and sugar and filled with sweet creamy cheesecake.
Best of all this recipe as impressive as it looks is simple to make using ready-made cheesecake filling. This would make a great dessert for a spring or summer gathering! You can do most of the work ahead of time and the fry in a matter of minutes, garnish and serve.
Imagine their expressions when you present these decked out with strawberries, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and sprinkles! They’ll think your pretty awesome indeed!
