Apple Enchilada Inspiration

Deep South Dish: Apple Enchiladas.

Came across this recipe today – and the name immediately intrigued me. Apples are in abundance this time of year, so I clicked it – knowing full well I would be modifying the recipe. As you will come to learn, for me a recipe is at best a starting off point, I have trouble containing myself when it comes to tweaking and playing with a recipe – even before I’ve ever tasted it!

But I had no idea how much! First of all – the flour tortillas had to go, I am a corn tortilla gal all the way! Second, when it comes to desserts I prefer them to be rich and satisfying. So in will go some cream cheese or creme fraiche inside the “enchilada”, along with more butter and less sugar in the sauce. ¬†And then for that kick – this definitely needs to be heated up with an abundance of spices: cloves, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg – I am going to throw the works at it. And maybe just a splash of lemon…

When my apples arrive this week in my CSA box – I will try out my recipe idea as soon as I can. I’ll let you know how it turns out, complete with pictures of course!
