Day 19 - CHIMICHERRYCHANGAS! by TopGull Day 19 - CHIMICHERRYCHANGAS! by TopGull
Chimicherrychangas! Inspired by "The Last Roundup" from season 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic! These are really easy to make, and I'll try to explain everything step-by-step so even the most inexperienced bakers can follow along. This recipe makes two chimicherrychangas.

Ingredients:
1 10-oz. jar baking cherries (maraschino cherries)
2 tsp corn starch
2 flour tortillas
cooking oil
powdered sugar

Equipment:
7" saucepan or deep skillet
Baking thermometer
Tongs
Small whisk
Small mixing bowl

Instructions:

1. Pour 1-2 cm of cooking oil into the saucepan. Heat the oil on medium until it reaches 350 F, then set to low.

2. While the oil is heating up, drain the cherries, then pour them into the mixing bowl. (Save 2 cherries for topping chimicherrychangas.) Mash the cherries with the whisk. Mix in the corn starch. (You can add more or less corn starch depending on how thick you want the filling to be.)

3. Place half of the cherry mixture in the center of each tortilla and wrap. (If your tortillas are not very flexible, try steaming them. Heat a small amount of water in a large pot or skillet, and place tortillas on a cooling rack or screen placed on top until they are flexible.)

4. Using the tongs, carefully place each wrapped tortilla into the hot oil. Fry for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove them from the oil and place on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

5. Serve with powdered sugar and a cherry on top!

You totally forgot the cinnamon-sugar to roll the chimis in after they come out of the oil. XD And I dunno if I'd use maraschino cherries for this... has anypony tried using pie filling?

I've never tried it, but pie filling probably would work better.

That looks delicious! Might be something you can make at Chistmas time(with maraschino cherries, and all).

This is a combination of a few other recipes I found online plus a little bit of experimentation. I wrote this up after I made a test batch, and to my knowledge it's one of the easiest and most complete chimicherrychanga recipes out there. Let me know how yours turn out!

Heh, thanks! It's actually pretty sloppy, if you ask me. I'd like to go back and clean this up after the NATG is over.

Thank you! I came up with the idea for this about a month ago, when I tried making these for myself and couldn't find any decent recipes. Today's theme was the perfect excuse to crank this out.
