Peach Enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 12 to 15 flour or wheat tortillas (regular size)
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • Cinnamon sugar to taste
  • Tap water
  • 9” x 13” pan – spray with cooking spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray pan. Peel and slice peaches, then stir in sugar.

Spoon peaches into tortillas and tightly roll the tortillas. Place rolled tortillas into pan, seam down. Space the tortillas closely, filing entire pan. It is okay for some tortillas to line the sides of the pan.

Along the sides of the pan, pour water into the pan until water is approximately 3/4” high. Slice butter and scatter on top of enchiladas. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top of all enchiladas. Bake at 400 degrees in middle rack for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve with or without vanilla ice cream.

Directions
