  • Homemade Strawberry Pie Filling or 1 (21 ounce) can strawberry pie filling
  • 6 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • For the Strawberry Pie Filling:
    • 1 pound fresh strawberries, tops removed, divided
    • ¾ cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup boiling water
    • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the Strawberry Pie Filling:
    • Puree 1 ½ cups of strawberries in a food processor or blender.
    • Add sugar, boiling water, and cornstarch; blend until smooth.
    • Pour into a medium saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
    • Boil for 3 minutes until thick and jam-like, then remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
    • Halve or quarter the remaining strawberries and stir into the sauce.
  2. Assemble the Enchiladas:
    • Preheat oven to 350°F and butter a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
    • Soften tortillas in the microwave if needed.
    • Spoon about 1/4 cup of filling off-center on each tortilla, roll up, and place seam side down in the dish.
  3. Make the Sauce:
    • In a saucepan, bring butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and water to a boil.
    • Simmer for 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
    • Pour over enchiladas and sprinkle with extra cinnamon if desired.
    • Let stand for 45 minutes.
  4. Bake:
    • Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, topped with strawberry syrup.

Note: The strawberry filling will separate when refrigerated. Reheat everything in a saucepan until smooth again.

Serving Suggestions:

  • These Strawberry Pie Enchiladas are best served warm. They pair beautifully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, enhancing the flavors and adding a creamy texture.
  • Drizzle some extra strawberry syrup on top for added sweetness and a more appealing presentation.
  • You can also garnish with fresh strawberries or a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra touch of flavor and decoration.

Tips for Success:

  • When making the homemade strawberry pie filling, ensure that the strawberries are fresh and ripe for the best flavor.
  • Be careful not to overfill the tortillas to prevent the filling from spilling out during baking.
  • Allowing the enchiladas to stand for 45 minutes before baking helps the tortillas to soak up the sauce, resulting in a more flavorful and moist dessert.
  • If you prefer a less sweet dessert, you can adjust the amount of sugar in the filling and sauce according to your taste.

This Strawberry Pie Enchiladas recipe is a delightful twist on traditional desserts, combining the freshness of strawberries with the comfort of a baked treat. It’s perfect for special occasions or as a unique dessert to impress your guests.

Enjoy the process of making these delicious enchiladas and the wonderful combination of flavors they offer!
