Blueberry Fruit Fajitas
Blueberry Fruit Fajitas are one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make. These use only four ingredients, plus water. I rolled a dollop of Blueberry Pie filling in fresh tortillas. Then I made a syrup of butter, sugar and water. The syrup is poured over the rolled tortillas. Then the tortillas sit in the syrup about 45 minutes before baking to saturate them and bump up the flavor. Oh, so good.
Back in the mid nineties we went to a church fellowship and our Pastor’s wife made Fruit Fajitas. We loved them. She used apple pie filling. But I made them years ago with apple and blueberry. They’re great with any kind of pie filling in my opinion.
I made both Apple Fruit Fajitas and Blueberry Fruit Fajitas when we had a Tex-Mex night for our Empty Nester’s group at church. Even though these fajitas (tortillas) are regularly made for dessert, they are actually really good for breakfast too–kind of like eating crepes.
If you’re looking for an easy dessert recipe for a potluck, family dinner, or even Cinco de Mayo, Blueberry Fruit Fajitas is just the right one to choose. Even your kids can make this easy recipe.
Blueberry Fruit Fajitas are kind of like eating crepes, but so much easier since you use tortillas instead.
The syrup poured over top of the fajitas makes them really delicious.
The Fajitas are drenched in a sweet butter-sugar syrup before baking. Yum.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place a few tablespoons of blueberry pie filling toward the bottom of a tortilla.
Roll tortilla up tightly.
Place tortillas seam-side down in a large baking dish.
Combine butter, sugar and water in a small saucepan over low to medium heat. Heat until butter melts. Remove from heat.
Pour the syrup over top of the fajitas. Allow tortillas to absorb syrup for 45 minutes before baking.
Cover dish with foil and bake about 40-45 minutes.
Blueberry Fruit Fajitas are so delicious. They’re also great for breakfast as well as dinner.
If you enjoy blueberries, you’ll love this dessert.
Every bite is delightful.
Here’s the recipe.
