Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas

Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas

Tomorrow morning I’m flying to Austin, Texas for the annual BlogHer Food conference, and I could think of no better sendoff than a southern-inspired sweet that pays homage to a Tex-Mex favorite: chimichangas.

For all those unfamiliar with the dish, chimichangas are essentially deep-fried burritos filled with a variety of savory fillings, such as pulled pork or beef, beans, rice and cheese. But given that I can’t go a day without a bite of something sweet, I dreamt up a dessert version that stars a homemade strawberry cheesecake filling rolled inside flour tortillas. The stuffed tortillas go for a quick dunk in boiling oil and a final swish in cinnamon and sugar. The result is a twist on traditional cheesecake that swaps pillowy tortillas for the classic graham cracker crust.

But the sweetness doesn’t end there! I’m headed to Austin with the KitchenAid team, and they’re extending a pretty sweet giveaway with the chance to win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, color of your choice.

Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 25 min

Cook Time: 5 min


1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon plus 1/4 cup sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
6 (8-inch) soft flour tortillas
1 3/4 cups sliced strawberries, divided
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
Vegetable oil, for frying

Equipment: toothpicks; deep-fry thermometer


In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese with the sour cream, 1 tablespoon sugar, vanilla extract and lemon zest, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Fold in 3/4 cup of the sliced strawberries.

Divide the mixture evenly between the tortillas, slathering each portion in the lower third of each tortilla. Next, fold the two sides of each tortilla toward the center and then roll the tortilla up like a burrito and secure it with a toothpick. Repeat the rolling process with the remaining tortillas.

Combine the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cinnamon in a shallow bowl and set it aside. Line a large plate with paper towels.

Add 3 inches of oil to a large, deep saucepan, leaving a minimum of 2 inches from the top of the oil to the top of the saucepan. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 360ºF on a deep-fry thermometer.

Working in batches, fry the chimichangas until golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes, flipping them as needed. Transfer the chimichangas to the paper towel-lined plate to drain for 1 minute, and then roll them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Repeat the frying and rolling process with the remaining chimichangas, returning the oil to 360ºF between batches.

Remove all toothpicks from the chimichangas and transfer them to serving plates. Top each with a portion of the remaining 1 cup of sliced strawberries and serve immediately.

    Oh my gosh, these are incredible! What an amazing idea! I love that you turned something that is traditionally savory into something sweet, summery and so Texas!
    Wish I was headed to Texas to meet all you guys! I am so jealous, but I hope you have a great time!

  2. says

    Have fun at BH!! I’m not going but now that half the blogging world is, I am suddenly really wishing I had gotten my act together :)

    Love your chimichangas but of all your recipes, recently those Samoas bars are just…what I dream of!

  3. Celine says

    I would make your Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins with Streusel using the KitchenAid Stand Mixer! The muffins look scrumptious :)

  4. Heidi says

    I would definitely make your homemade Samoas, ’cause you reached RIGHT into the heart of my stomach with that one.

  5. Heidi says

    These chimichangas look delish! If I had a kitchen aid mixer I would make your yummy Samoa Bars. They were a hit with everyone who tried them. I love following your blog. Keep up the great recipes :0)

  6. Anna says

    These look delicious and fun. I would definitely make your pepperoni pull apart bread! It was a huge hit at my Super Bowl but I believe the stand mixer would have perfected it.

  7. Elizabeth says

    Oh this is easy! I’d totally make those Chimichangas with that brand new Kitchenaid.. they look AMAZING!!!

  8. Patricia Boden says

    I would definitely make your Monster Cookies!! Love your recipes, Kelly :). Have a great time in TX!

  9. Jennifer W. says

    I LOVE anything strawberry. I would make this strawberry cheesecake chimichanga recipe with my new KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

  10. says

    o-m-g these look amazing!!! I know if I won a new stand mixer (which I desperately need) that I would make this recipe first!!!

  11. Linnea says

    Although all of your recipes are amazing, I would make the Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins with Streusel if I won the new kitchenaid stand mixer!

  12. Gina Clabough says

    I have been picking strawberries from my patch and can’t wait to give these a try. And to have the new stand mixer to do it with – a true win-win!!!

  13. Kymberly B says

    This looks really good! I know my husband and boys would love this!!! Especially since we just went to the strawberry patch not too long ago and we have so many strawberries I’m trying to find recipes to use them in, be creative. If not they would eat them all up anyway! We love this time in the summer all the yummy fruits. And I’ve never owned a Kitchen Aid mixer but it is definitely on my wish list, I know it would make things a lot easier in the kitchen. Have a AWESOME time in TX!

  14. DeniseB says

    Your scrumptious Banana Pudding, my hand held mixer just doesnt cut it!! But after looking at these beautiful pictures of the Cheesecake Chimichangas-I just might make these first!! Hard decision!! Either way have a great time in Austin!! Its a beautiful and fun city!! Welcome to TEXAS!!

  15. says

    Hooray!!!! You fried them! I was super fearful because chimichangas are fried and I recently saw a recipe where they were called chimichangas but weren’t fried omg the horror seriously. I’m in love! Also… I’m still dying to make your pepperoni pull apart bread. Total carb lover here ;)

  16. Anne says

    I would make what I always make…my NEW signature recipe (thanks to You) red velvet cheesecake brownies. I usually make them with a handheld mixer (when I go to my mom’s I make them with HER kitchen aid) but I would LOVE one for myself!!

  17. Shannon-Margaret Peddle says

    The Homemade Samoas caught my eye from another blog. They are my favorite! Plus, a kitchen aid has been on my wish list firbyears!

  18. says

    I would make these cheesecake chimichangas first! I’ve tried apple cinnamon chimichangas before and they were amaazing, so I know these will be awesome!

  19. Beth says

    I’d make either these chimichangas or the espresso chocolate chip brownie cookies! It’s a tough choice! Maybe I’d make both. =)

  20. Heather says

    Kelly, you never cease to amaze me! I am more of a savory girl, so I’d make your pepperoni pizza pull apart bread – looks to die for!! Keep up the amazing work!

  21. says

    Have so much fun in Austin! So jealous…you all will have a blast! As for the recipe, I want to make everything you post, but I think I want to make those Samoa Bars the most! Or the Marshmallow Brownies w/ Almonds. Yum!

  22. Marissa Kubinski says

    I’ve never made chimichangas before and this recipe looks quick and easy. Great giveaway :)

  23. karen says

  24. Jo-Claire says

    The first thing I would make is Cheese cake, the recipe I have has to be beaten for 60 minutes, how lovely it would be to have the stand mixer to turn on and walk away from it, to do some other things.

    These Cheescake chimichangas look very good too.

  25. says

    Your Chimichangas look absolutely divine. I won’t make those “when” I win that blender because I know they won’t look as amazing as yours. However I’d definitely try those red velvet cheesecake brownies!

  26. amanda a says

    I would LOVE to make these strawberry cheesecake chimichangas. I saw the picture and immediately grunted a loud “MMM!”. You got this pregnant lady drooling over here! I’d also love to make the whoopie pies! Can you tell I’m expecting a girl with all the sweets? ;)

  27. Barbi says

    Just found your site! I would make these chimichangas!! I am from Texas…San Antonio to be exact and its crazy I’ve never heard of or thought to try this. Even if I don’t win the mixer, I’m still gonna make this!!! DELISH!!!

  28. Nancy M. says

    the Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins are my choice, with a close second being the Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas!

  29. Jamie Canfield says

    I would make your roasted garlic hummus if I won the Kitchen Aid Mixer! Or the banana pudding, or the strawberry cheesecake chimichangas! I would make everything!

  30. says

    OMG those strawberry cheesecake chimichangas look awesome! I would have to make those! Would whole wheat tortillas work? And do you think there’s a way to make them without frying them in oil?

  31. Stephanie H. says

    Cheesecake is one of my absolute favorites so I would definitely have to try these Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas. They look so yummy and I think the whole family would love them!

  32. LauraS says

    These look incredible! The first Just a Taste recipe I would make with a KitchenAid Stand Mixer would be these Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas!

  33. Whitney Mahlmann says

    I would make the homemade fortune cookies. I have made them before and my kids loved them.

  34. Elin says

    First of all, these chimichangas look DELISH! However, I’ve been wanting to find a good recipe for cheesecake brownies, still on the hunt, and I’ve bookmarked yours as one to try soon, so that might have to be the recipe.

  35. Diana says

    these look soo yummy!! I would have to try these first….maybe add some chocolate sauce to dip them in…. love chocolate! lol

  36. Sheri says

    Wow. . these look awesome!! I would make the homemade Samoa bars. My husband would love them. . . they would be great for a Father’s day treat!!

  37. says

    THIS IS DELICIOUS! My fiance and I were fighting over the last bite. It reminds me of a desert I once had at Disney at China in Epcot! OUT OF THIS WORLD! Thank you for sharing with us!

  38. says

    First of all these look delish! I would make your Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins with Streusel in the mixer!! Been dying to make those! I would love to get a mixer in a fun color!!

  39. Becky G says

    Love the mixer, love the color, love the recipe. I am new to this page. Just now found it, which is probably very sad (for me). Plan to spend the day looking at your recipes. I can tell they are excellent. Thank you.

  40. Kattie says

    I would seriously make these chimichangas!! I was searching for deserts to make for my bday next week, and this is definitely gonna be the one to try!!

  41. Victoria says

    Those Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas look awe inspiring. But… the recipe I would like to make of yours is the Roasted Garlic Macaroni and Cheese. Comfort food all the way! My mouth is watering now just thinking of it.

  42. says

  46. Alison R in Langley says

    What wouldn’t I make? First of all, I’d try the Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies-yum!

  47. Tara M says

  48. Elizabeth says

  49. Belinda Turner says

    Oh my goodness, I would love to try these and the
    Pomegranate Guacamole from a while back is very intriguing. I’ve been wanting a KitchenAid mixer since I was like 18. (that was quite a while ago)

  50. Barb K says

    So many great recipes-but would try the Somoa GS cookie lookalike recipe with my New KITCHENAID mixer

  51. Joelle says

    I’ve never tried making cheesecake from scratch or chimichangas so would have to try this yummy looking recipe! ;)

  52. says

  53. Ellie says

    I would use a KitchenAID for EVERYTHING!!! Something sweet a savory like the strawberry chimichangas or monster cookies….MMMMM

  54. Lori says

    Since I have strawberries up the wazoo at the moment, I would definitely make the Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas first……:-)

  55. Donna M. says

    OH MY GOODNESS! That is a tough one, as I would want to make so many things! I would probably mix us some chocolate chip cookies first and yes, I would have to try this strawberry Cheesecake Chimi. I would go crazy baking for sure! : )

  56. Jane says

    Though this recipe looks absolutely delicious, the first thing I’d make with a new mixer would be Monster Cookies!

  57. Brandi Davis Bryant says

    This first things (it;s a tie) my daughter and I would make are the pecan pie bars and the samoa bars. Next would be these strawberry chimichangas…they look yummy. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Good luck everyone.

  58. Christina Z says

    OMG Yum!! I so want to make this!!! I definitely would make the Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas or the Pulled Pork Chimichangas oh my gosh could make so much. Thank you for the chance to win.

  59. Amy says

    Love these! I had something similar at a restaurant years ago and haven’t seen them since. I can’t wait to try them. I would definitely be making these with a new KitchenAid mixer!

  60. Teresa Siberio says

    Blueberry Orange Juice Bread…with my fresh u-pick blueberries!! I’ve got all the ingredients, just need the mixer.

  61. Kaitlin Sickle says

    That s’more pie is looking awfully good these days! I’d probably start there and work my way up!

  62. says

    Wow! I had something like this for dessert at a chain restaurant a long time ago and had always wondered whether they could be made at home. After stumbling across your recipe here, I am definitely going to try it ASAP!

    And that mixer is mighty sharp ;)

    If I had it, I would make your red velvet cheesecake brownies ( – They look way too good to pass up, and a mixer would help out!

  63. cathy peltonen says

    The strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas are what drew me to your site! Definitely doing to pin these and try them soon!!

  67. Ranell Ross Oberlies says

  68. Amanda says

    I would Love Love to make this recipe actually!!!! It looks like so much fun and freakin yummmy!!!!!!!

  70. Wilma Searcy says

    I really need the mixer to make an Angel Food cake for my husband.
    That is his favorite dessert, especially with strawberries! We have been married for 61 years – that’s a lot of meals cooked in my kitchen!
    thanks for the giveaway.

  71. sydney85 says

    When my Austin friends visit me in Chicago I plan to make the Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas. They will love these.

  72. Alyssa Thiel says

    All of these recipes look so amazing, but I think the recipe I’ve been most dying to make is the banana pudding with salted caramel. So, if I won the mixer I would make the banana pudding. Thank you for so many amazing recipes!

  73. Linda Frost says

    I’d totally make these Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas as one of my first recipes w/ a new mixer! They really do look scrumptious!!!

  74. Ginger says

    Welcome to Austin! It’s always nice to have visitors. :)
    I hope you have a great time.

    Let’s see, if I had to pick one recipe, it’d have to be your Pepperoni Pizza Pull-Apart Bread. I’ve never turned down a slice of pizza in my entire life and I love to try new ways of making it.

  75. Sara says

    If I won the kitchenaid mixer I would make this
    Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas recipe. Cheesecake has been my favorite dessert that was served at every birthday party since I turned one, so this is just a new fun take on my favorite flavors@

  76. Amy Reed says

    I have had your Samoa Cookie Bars on my “things to make” and I would also love to make these Strawberry-Cheesecake Chimis!

  77. Rachel says

    I have been avoiding making your marshmallow salted almond brownies. After all bikini season is upon us BUT if I won I would somewhat be forced, yes FORCED, because who in their right mind wins something as awesome as this and doesn’t make deadly brownies?!

  78. Dayna says

    The more important question is – what recipe *wouldn’t* I make with a new Kitchen Aid stand mixer? I’d try to do almost everything with it since I’m current lacking!

  79. kristal says

    Oh wow! I would make the red velvet cheesecake brownies and the strawberry cheesecake chimichangas.

    That is what I would make for my first kitchen aide event :)

  94. Lorna Gilbert says

    Hi Kelly! You continue to amaze & I just love your blog! I would make your German Chocolate Cake with a new KitchenAid mixer – it is by far one of the best recipes that I have ever come across. Thanks!!

  95. Christy S says

    I would make espresso chocolate chip brownie cookies, and so many other of your delicious desserts…but coffee and chocolate in portable cookie form definitely wins my 1st vote!! Can’t wait to hear all about your trip!

  96. Devi says

    So – i’m wondering, apart form how delicious the chimichangas look like they’ll be, if there is a chance that the KitchenAid would be able to make its way all the way to Johannesburg in South Africa?

    I’ll even split the courier costs with you! :)

  97. Paulette says

    Your web site is amazing!!!! Just recently moved to within 3 miles of our three little grand daughters (we previously lived about 200 miles away) and can’t wait for the days ahead of cooking with them!! Which to do first, I don’t know!!!! Will let them decide!!!! Fun days ahead in the kitchen with grannie!!!!!!!

  98. Rick says

    I am making these tonight. I went out after work yesterday and got all the ingredients but forgot the lemon so back again today and they will be made tonight. I am also going to try various fruits as they are starting to come into season; blueberries, raspberries, bananas with chocolate, the list goes on. So glad I found your blog yesterday, I am truly a fan! Enjoy Texas and remember not everything is big in Texas just the attitude!

  99. Auntiepatch says

    Well, since I’m about to lick my screen, I would make these
    Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas first!!! Have fun in Texas!

  100. Carolyn says

  101. Yvette says

    Hi Kelly! Thanks for this giveaway! :) I would definitely make the smore pie first!!!

    (I republished this comment because I put in the wrong email above^

  102. simone smucker says

    i would definitely make the Homemade Samoas Bars! Mmm, mmm, comfort food. :) Looking forward to more good recipes!

  103. Vickie says

    Wow, those look like they have my name all over them. Strawberries and cheesecake – what’s not to love. Hopefully you’ll be sharing some great Tex-Mex food from Austin.

  104. Le Ann Johnson says

    I would us that new Kitchen-Aide to whip up your Veggie Pizza with Hummus. The dough is hands down the best I have had. In the summertime, we have piiza “on the grill.” What a treat. This dough is sooo good and bakes on the grates (yes on clean stone) better than any other recipe I have tried.

  105. Tracy says

    The Peaches and Cream cupcakes look delicious (I’d give the mixer to my sister with the recipe)!

  106. Jessica says

    There are so many things I would try with this kitchen aid! It is hard to choose between the pavlova for the forth of July or the red velvet brownies, yum! It would be a great help since I don’t own one! Have fun in Austin! Hope you bring back some more amazing recipes!

  107. says

    I would make your Strawberry Chimichangas. They sound so good. Of course I would make a lot of recipes with the new Kitchen Aid mixer. Red is the perfect color.

  108. Morgan says

    With the juicy peaches finally in season, I would have to make your peaches & cream cupcakes!! YUM!

  109. Kim says

    I would make your Strawberry Cheesecake Chiichangas. They sound amazing and the mixer would sure make them easy to make.

  110. Lanna G says

    The very first thing I’d make if I had a new red Kitchen Aide stand mixer would have to be these delectable looking Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas because, after reading the recipe and seeing the picture, I’m now obsessed with making them! Then I’d just work my way through the rest of your amazing recipes, one by one. I think the Samoas Cookie Bars would be next.. ;)

  111. Barbara says

    Those strawberry chimichangas look amazing. I would definitely start with those beauties. I didn’t make it to the conference this year… but next year for sure. I don’t have a blog yet but I just finished reading your book and am really inspired. It won’t be long now

  112. says

    I would definitely try the beautiful strawberry chimichangas they look amazing. I also already love the green juicing recipe in blender its great…

  113. Doris Lee says

    This looks so attractive that I my mouth is watering. I would love to have a new Kitchen Aide stand mixer to make your Parmesan Black Pepper Focaccia. Doing it by hand was not fun since the dough is so wet.

  114. Stephanie W. says

    I would make the The Perfect Chocolate Loaf Cake! YUMMY! I’ve made it before and think it would be a lot easier with this stand mixer.

  115. Jamie carpenter says

    I am a teacher and next week is my last week before summer break! So for summer mornings, I am dying to make your sour cream coffee streusel muffins! And…I just renovated the kitchen,so a kitchen aid would sit beautifully on my new countertops!

  116. Natalie K says

    I’d make your sour cream coffee muffins with streusel first if I won this mixer! They’re my husband’s favorite!

  117. ATebb says

    These look good! Although… I am tempted to replace the strawberries with peaches. I bet that would be good too. MMm, ah, so hungry now!

  118. marilyn tineo schmidt says

    I learned to cook with your site and I greatly appreciate from the heart the new memories that you have helped me create with my family!!!!!! So MO matter if I win the mixer or not, I want to THANK YOU!!!!! Sunday’s Brunch included your recipe of Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins with Streusal … Wonderful Brilliant and Devoured in One Day!!!!!!! That’s the first thing I would make with the mixer as a celebration on many levels!!!! Continued Success & Many Blessings!!!!! <3 <3 <3

  119. Andrea says

    This looks absolutely stunning and delicious! I make everything from whole foods and a Kitchen Aid would give me extra time with the family, we would love it so and use it often!

  120. Linda J says

    This sounds perfect for our family Sunday Brunches. We love getting together outside for amazing new recipes and tastes. Both myself and my daughter try to bring one new delicious recipe to the table…I guarantee this will be one of mine!

  121. Jane Kelly says

    Those Strawberry Chimichangas are pretty much going to be it right now with all the fresh strawberries around. I do believe that would be the first of many that I would make with a new dependable KitchenAide Mixer

  122. Diane says

    I would love to try the Espresso Chocolate Chip brownie cookies and also the Pepperoni pizza pull apart bread! Can imagine how easy making bread dough with a Kitchen Aid mixer would be..awesome!

  123. Melanie says

    Hard to resist the strawberry chimichanga….but the coconut macaroons with pineapple look amazing too!

  124. Martha Rice says

    Love strawberry desserts and this one looks like it’s right at the top of the strawberry dessert ladder. Can’t wait to try it!

  125. Daniella says

    It would have to be the Monster Cookies! They draw me back to the site time and time again. They bring out the child in me, Bellissimo!

  126. says

    I believe I will try to make these today. Seriously, who doesn’t LOVE strawberries and Cream Cheese? Look at the recipe and photos. Doesn’t it make you want to make these? It looks pretty easy. I’m going to see how mine come out and then I’m going to bring to my friend that is healing from surgery. She’ll be happily surprised I’m sure. I’ll probably post a pic on my FB page. I don’t own a Kitchen Aid Stand mixer— yet. I hope to win this one. For now, I’ll rely on my good old old stand by, a hand mixer. Although a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer would be a whole lot easier! :D

  127. Mackenzie says

    Oh my amazing idea. I can’t wait to make this! Oh and I would make Toffee Blondies in a heart beat. Yum.

  128. AlexB. says

    I would love to try this Strawberry and Creamcheese Chimichangas and your Peaches and Cream Cupcakes!! Yum!!! Making it with a new KitchenAid would be even sweeter :)

  129. Gabrielle says

    I would love to make your Easy Homemade Parmesan Hamburger Buns in a KitchenAid Stand Mixer! Owning one of these things is an absolute dream of mine. I hope to one day be able to afford one.

    With a new KitchenAid Stand Mixer I would… OF COURSE… make the Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies! They are the most delicious little squares of heaven. I sent my husband to his office with plate full… and his colleagues liked them so much they’ve now nicknamed him Red Velvet haha :) They are to die for.

  131. Connie Brown says

    I would love to try this recipe with a new Kitchenaid mixer. They look like a cross between a churro & strawberry shortcake. Yum!

  135. Kim C. says

    The recipe that I would choose to make would be this Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas recipe because it is exactly what I’ve been craving.

  136. Alison says

    Ooh I can try to make couple of these for my family Father’s Day party these weekend since I already had tortillas in my kitchen pantry. Can’t wait!

      So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Brites!

  143. Cathy says

    Just made these and they were delicious. I did not fry them, instead spread outer side of tortilla with butter, filled and rolled Chimichanga, and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on all sides before baking in the oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden & crispy.

      Awesome! Love your updates, Cathy!

  144. Diana says

    I have gluten and dairy sensitivities. I made these with GF tortillas and dairy free cream cheese and sour cream. They were awesome! My boyfriend loved them, too. Thanks for the recipe!!

      Awesome! So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Diana!

  145. Bobbie Weston says

    I am so happy for this… It is like a Crepe to the Nth Degree. I really didn’t know just how much I needed this in my life! Thank you!

  146. Tin Ewing says

    Can you make the Strawberry Cheesecake chimichagus 6-7 hours ahead of time?

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — April 15th, 2014 @ 10:13 am

      Hi Tin – Because the chimichangas are deep-fried, they really should be served immediately after they’re cooked, so I wouldn’t recommend making them ahead of time.

  147. Kathy says

    Could you possibly start putting nutrition info with the recipes?

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — May 30th, 2014 @ 8:29 am

      Hi Kathy! I am not a nutritionist, so I do not provide the calorie counts for any of my recipes.

  148. Alex says

    Was wondering if there is a healthier versions? Has anyone fried frying in Olive or coconut oil? Fat free cream cheese and sour cream perhaps?

  149. Deja says

    Can I use corn tortillas instead? I am gluten-free but really want to try this.

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — January 12th, 2015 @ 8:31 am

      Hi Deja – Corn tortillas are very hard to roll, so they would likely crack in this recipe. Definitely let me know if you give it a shot!

  150. Ashley D. says

    Is there an alternative to rolling them in the cinnamon & sugar mixture. I am highly allergic to cinnamon but I love strawberry cheesecake.

    • Kelly Senyei replied: — January 18th, 2015 @ 10:13 am

      Feel free to skip that part, Ashley! Or just roll them only in sugar :)

  151. nancy walker says

    Well at first I thought I probably would not use it. And I didn’t want to lie to get it. But than I seen the recipe that you showed and now would really love having one. I always do it by hand because that is just what I did. But as you get older it gets harder to do and would be nice to have this to use! Thanks and God Bless!!

  152. etta55player says

    Try these with fat free everything. Yes, it can be done. Use the powdered artificial sweetener (the ones that is the same as sugar), inside and out. Then a very limited time to deep fry. They are still VERY delicious and sooo much lower in calories. You’ll be surprised at how good they are this way.

  153. Lesley N H Cruz says

    I would totally make the strawberry cheesecake chimichangas first. They look so delicious!!

  154. Kristen A says

    These are so good! I made them low-carb & sugar free (I used low-carb tortillas, truvia instead of sugar, & fried in coconut oil). THM S!


  1. […] When the deep fryer comes out, all the things get fried! Seriously, it’s like a marathon of frying. So before we could enjoy our chicken fingers this weekend, I had to make these Raspberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls. The filling is made of a cream cheese mixed with fresh raspberries and blackberries, a hint of lemon and a pinch of sugar. Well more than a pinch, but you get the picture. I followed a variation of this recipe. […]
