Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas

Fry up a sweet twist on a savory Tex-Mex favorite with a quick and easy recipe for Strawberry Cheesecake 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. Enter, Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas!

Spatula mixing cream cheese and fresh strawberries together in a clear bowl

The step-up is simple, a homemade strawberry cheesecake filling is stuffed inside flour tortillas before going for a quick dunk in boiling oil and a final roll in cinnamon and sugar. The result is a twist on traditional cheesecake that swaps the classic graham cracker crust for pillowy flour tortillas.

It’s like a fried burrito meets cheesecake meets churro. Because the only thing better than a slice of strawberry cheesecake… is strawberry cheesecake tucked inside a buttery, fried tortilla that’s rolled in cinnamon-sugar!

You may be wondering, “Can strawberry cheesecake chimichangas be made ahead of time?”

Because the chimichangas are deep-fried, they really are best fresh, but you can refrigerate them in covered airtight containers or wrapped tightly with plastic wrap. They are easy to re-warm in the oven, but they’ll lose some of their initial crunch.

Two Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas on a white plate with fresh strawberries
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 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


  • 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 ¾ 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 ¼ 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.

    These are amazing. I used strawberry pie filling in one and pineapple preserves in another with a simple icing glaze. My own twist on this wonderful treat

  2. Hello! I was wondering if you could share the cooking info using the air fryer? I cannot eat deep fried but really would like to make these…any info you can suggest will be appreciated

    1. Hi Patti – I haven’t tried this recipe using an air fryer so I’m not certain what the temp/time would be! I’d start at 360°F for 4 to 6 minutes and see how they look!

  3. 5 stars
    This recipe is absolutely a keeper! I have made it many times since discovering it last year. I have subbed strawberry Greek yogurt for the sour cream a few times. Works great and adds a little strawberry flavor! The recipe adapts easily to any fruit

      1. I’ve made these but with banana for probably 10 years. They are great to make ahead and take on a camping trip, then fry in a hot cast iron pan over hot coals. So good!!

  4. Made these Chimichanga ‘s today using fresh strawberries,but instead of deep frying I
    Used about 2 tablespoons of butter in a frying pan to brown them. My husband and I
    Really enjoyed them. I melted chocolate chips to spread on top. Great recipe.

  5. 5 stars
    Loved this! I cooked these in my air fryer and they turned out amazing! Definitely a recipe to keep around.

      1. 5 stars
        I love this recipe. Tried and loved it. Post one for carmel so I can try that one to. Awesome job Kelly.

    1. I’ve never tried that with this recipe so I’m not sure. Let me know if you give it a shot!

    1. Hi there! My only concern with prepping the chimichangas in advance is that the tortilla may get a bit soggy. Definitely let me know if you give it a shot!

  6. I made these for our office pot luck! let me just say that literally after they were sat out on the table the whole pan of them disappeared within seconds. I had to make another pan of them the next day because so many people heard about how good they were from other associates. This is a wonderful delicious treat for any age. By the way, my kitchen smelled like a bakery for days after making these. The strawberries, and deep fried dough smelled throughout my home. Loved the taste and the smell!

    1. Hi Sharon – These really are best fresh, but you can refrigerate in covered airtight containers or wrap tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Re-warm in the oven so they’ll be crispy.

  7. 5 stars
    These were amazing and a big hit with my family. They are creamy, crispy, sweet with a little tartness and delicioso!

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

    1. Hi Pam! I’ve never tried baking these so I can’t provide details on that method for this recipe. Let me know if you give it a shot!

  8. These were great! The filling is light and fluffy, and the outside is crunchy. Will definitely make again.

    1. Hi Kathy! My only concern with prepping the chimichangas in advance is that the tortilla may get a bit soggy. Definitely let me know if you give it a shot!

  9. Love your site..the Crack Chicken drew me in…but this also looks AmaZing. Thanks so much p.s. do you have a white cheese sauce recipe so I can top my Crack Chicken Enchiladas

  10. These were amazing!!! I have made them on several occasions for just myself and my husband as well as when we knew we would be having friends over and people absolutely love them! They’ve been enjoyed so much that I’ve posted about them on my own website, , linking back to here to give you full credit! Thanks for my new go-to dessert!

  11. I made these tonight and while yours were way prettier mine were absolutely delish!!!!!!! We loved them. Thank you for the recipe!!!

  12. 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!

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

  14. these chimichangas look amazing!! and what a great giveaway. we love our kitchenaid mixer!

  15. 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.

  16. 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!!

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

    1. 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!

  18. 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?

  19. Oh my, oh my!!! I’m gonna try this recipe for sure. Looks tasty and tempting.
    Thank you for sharing your recipe, Kelly. Can’t wait to try this soon.

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

    1. 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.

  20. 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!

  21. 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!!

  22. 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.

  23. These are awsome! I must admit that rolling them up was quite a challenge :p but I’ll definatly Will be making these again!

  24. My local Mexican restaurant calls this dish Xango pronounced Chan’go. Thank you for posting this, and saving me the $6.95 they charge for one! So happy!

  25. Taste great, but does not taste like cheesecake at all. it taste like a light cream cheese filling, but great idea. Looking for more of a cheesecake fillnig 8(

  26. Kelly, thank you so much! I really LOVE my new KitchenAid Stand Mixer! And thank you for all of the recipe inspiration…”what will I make next” is always the question of the day.

    And looking at some of the comments, I’m checking out those red velvet brownies. Wow. They sound delicious.

  36. It’s got to be……
    “Easy Homemade Parmesan Hamburger Buns” …that’s what I’m gonna make in my new Kitchen aid.

  37. I would love to make the Strawberry cheesecake chimichangas in a brand new kitchen aid mixer!!

  38. I would make whoopie pies! This classic dessert is one i have yet to attempt and i really need to!!

  39. I would make your Sour Cream Coffee Cake Muffins with Streusel. The strawberry and cheesecake chimichangas look amazing. Never had a sweet chimichangas before. Sounds delicious!

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

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

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

  45. 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

  46. 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!

  47. 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!

  51. 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!

  52. 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!

  53. 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

  54. 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!

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

  56. Espresso Chocolate Chip Brownie Cookies…..there is not one word in that title that I do not LOVE!

  57. 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!

  58. 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.

  59. 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.

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

  61. 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

  62. 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.. ;)

  63. Oh my goodness! Those look so yummy! I have had the turquoise kitchen aid mixer on my wish list for ages.

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

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

  66. 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.

  67. 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!

  68. Well, it would have to be this one of course (the strawberry cheesecake chimichangas)! Except, I need to figure out how to bake them as I don’t fry things…

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

  70. 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.

  71. 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.

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

  76. 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!

  77. 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!!!!!!!

  78. 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! :)

  79. 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!

  80. 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!!

  83. The lead photo is gorgeous! I love that these look so delish and I don’t even need to turn on the oven to enjoy them.

  84. So many good recipes…so little time! Being a native Texan, I’d have to start with the chimichangas! I would definitely want to make the Pavlova for the 4th too! Hope you had a great time in the Lone Star State!!!

  85. I would definitely be making these chimichangas. Me and my family love strawberry cheesecake (well, cheesecake anything for that matter)!

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

  137. Going to have to try this chimichanga recipe! I would love to try & make macarons with a shiny new mixer. :o)

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

  139. Well it looks like I would have to try these Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas first! They look AMAZING!!

  140. Well it’s the cheesecake chimichangas that brought me here. So I would have to make THEM!!! Great giveaway–thanks for the chance to win!

  141. Um, this recipe! Cheesecake is a favorite around our house and anything mexico is special to us, so it’s a perfect combo!

  142. Just found your page due to a share on fb, but those Strawberry Cheesecake Chimi’s look absolutely AMAZING!!! Going to try them this weekend!!!

    Can’t wait to see more recipes!!!

  143. 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.

  144. 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!!

  145. 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.

  146. 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!!

  147. 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!

  148. 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!!

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

  150. 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.

  151. We are huge fans of anything cheesecake so these chimichangas would have to happen first!

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

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

  154. 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!

  155. 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?

  156. 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!

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

  158. 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!!!

  159. 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? ;)

  160. 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!

  161. 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.

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

  163. 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!

  164. 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!

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

  166. 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!

  167. This looks delicious! I was considering going to Austin, but things got to hectic. Maybe I’ll make the conference next year. Have a great trip!

  168. I would absolutely make this chimichanga recipe! It never dawned on me to make a sweet version. Hello cheesecake and strawberries! Have fun in Austin!

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

  170. 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!!

  171. 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 ;)

  172. 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!!

  173. 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!

  174. Holy cow this is absolutely gorgeous. Hopefully we will get to meet this weekend and welcome to TEXAS.

  175. That’s an easy question!! I’d make these
    Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas!!

  176. 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!!!

  177. 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!

  178. 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!!!

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

  180. OMG I would use the mixer for EVERYTHING–but I’d def. love to use it to try your monster cookies!

  190. Definitely these Chimichangas. I saw those crispy cinnamon & sugar honeys and knowing there’s fresh strawberries, cream cheese and sour cream inside? Definitely these babies!

  191. Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies, I cant think of a better combination and I have the recipe saved to make soon !

  192. These are AWESOME! I would make your “espresso chocolate chip brownie cookies” with the new mixer – I’ve had them on my mind for too long!

  193. oh my – this looks amazing!!! Your pictures are stunning, as always! I would make you pecan pie bars. I think they are the very best!

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

  195. Fabulous recipe and photography, Kelly! Have a blast at BHF! I had planned on going, but it just didn’t work out for this year. xo

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

  197. Yeah I’m with Averie. I was going to go but changed my mind…worst decision ever! Have fun :)

  198. 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!

  199. 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!
