Step 1

Mix cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl and set aside.

Step 2

Spoon apple pie filling across the bottom 1/3 of the tortilla.

Step 3

Roll in both sides of the tortilla before rolling up the bottom of the tortilla over the filling, and then continue to roll the tortilla up like a burrito. (I used toothpicks to secure in place) And a deepfryer instead of skillet)

Meanwhile, heat a small skillet with 1/2 an inch of oil. Once oil is hot, fry the chimichangas on all sides until the tortilla turns golden brown. (approximately 30 seconds on each side)

Step 4

Remove the chimichangas to a paper towel-lined plate and allow to drain briefly. Immediately roll the warm chimichanga in the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat and serve. Top with caramel sauce and serve with vanilla ice cream.
