Salted Caramel Apple Cheesecake Chimis Follow Me on Pinterest

With Cinco de Mayo coming up, I’ve been thinking a lot about Mexican food recipes. And when I say Mexican food, I mean “Mexican” food – the kind of food that you’d find in restaurants that give you sombreros for your birthday.  I worked as a waitress in a restaurant like that for about a  year and a half while I was in college. I loved the food, and I still miss it sometimes.

These salted caramel apple cheesecake chimis would have been perfectly at home on the menu there. They are stuffed with creamy cheesecake and juicy apple filling. The tortillas are crispy and buttery and cinnamon sugar-y, and the salted caramel sauce puts the whole dessert over the top. Seriously, these are soooooo good!!
