Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 can (21 oz) apple pie filling (go for your favorite, homemade or store-bought)
  • 6 flour tortillas (8 inches each)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • 8×8-inch baking dish
  • Medium saucepan
  • Aluminum foil
  • Spoon or spatula


  1. Heat it Up: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. This ensures that your enchiladas bake evenly and come out mouth-watering.
  2. Grease is the Word: Take your 8×8-inch baking dish and lightly grease it. You don’t want your enchiladas sticking, right?
  3. Apple Up: Spoon approximately 1/2 cup of the apple pie filling down the center of each tortilla. The apple pie filling is the heart of this recipe, delivering that nostalgic taste we all crave.
  4. Add Some Spice: Lightly sprinkle ground cinnamon over the apple pie filling. This will elevate the flavors, bringing warmth and aroma that fill the room.
  5. Roll it Right: Gently roll each tortilla and place it in your greased baking dish, seam side down. It’s like tucking your flavors into bed!
  6. Melt and Mix: In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in both the granulated and brown sugars along with the water. Ah, the beginnings of a caramel-like sauce that’ll give your enchiladas that ‘wow’ factor.
  7. Boil and Simmer: Once everything’s well-combined, bring your sauce to a boil. Then, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. This thickens the sauce and intensifies the flavor.
  8. Vanilla Vibes: Turn off the heat and add a dash of pure vanilla extract. This is the finishing touch that gives your sauce a sophisticated aroma.
  9. Sauce ’em Up: Pour this beautiful sauce generously over your waiting enchiladas in the baking dish.
  10. Cover and Bake: Cover the dish with aluminum foil and pop it into your preheated oven. Bake for 30 minutes or until you can’t resist the heavenly aroma wafting through your kitchen any longer.
  11. Warm and Wonderful: Serve these beauties warm, and if you’re feeling extra indulgent, a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream wouldn’t hurt!

Cooking tips:

  • Preparation is Key: Preheat the oven and grease your baking dish for a smooth baking experience.
  • Filling Choices: Whether you go for homemade or store-bought apple pie filling, both options are delicious. Homemade gives you control over the flavor.
  • Spice it Up: Don’t skip on the cinnamon; it elevates the whole dish with a warm aroma.
  • Seam Side Down: When placing your rolled tortillas in the dish, make sure the seam is at the bottom to prevent them from unrolling.
  • Sauce Texture: Cook the sugar and butter sauce until it reaches a caramel-like consistency. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Vanilla Vibes: Adding vanilla extract off the heat keeps its flavor profile intact, making your sauce aromatic.
  • Optional Creaminess: Add a dollop of cream cheese to the apple filling for a richer texture.
  • Cover While Baking: Using aluminum foil helps the enchiladas bake evenly without drying out.
  • Serve Warm: These enchiladas are best served warm, and a scoop of ice cream on top makes them heavenly
