Apple Enchiladas

 

Another favorite dessert is apple pie, and these Apple Enchiladas taste just like warm apple pie.  No need to hassle with making pie crust with Apple Enchiladas.  Just roll them up inside a tortilla and they are done.  The brown sugar gives these Apple Enchiladas a delicious caramel taste.  Enjoy!

 

Ingredients:
4 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored and cut into small chunks
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 Tablespoons Flour
6 Tortillas
Sauce-
1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Water

 

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Add apples, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and flour to a large skillet over medium high heat.  Cook until tender.

Prepare the sauce by combining butter, brown sugar and water together in a small saucepan.  Bring to a bubble over medium/high heat, reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes.

Roll the apple mixture in the tortillas, folding the ends in like a burrito.  Place in a buttered casserole dish.  Pour the brown sugar sauce over the enchiladas.  Bake for 20 minutes.

Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I love fall flavors!  Sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkin and of course acorn squash!  This is something that I threw together quickly and it ended up being amazing. I don’t do much microwave cooking, but it was too hot of a day to turn on the oven.  Plus, using the microwave made this come together very quickly.  Hope you like it!

Ingredients:
1 cup rice (or seasoned rice mix)
1 acorn squash
½ lb spicy breakfast sausage
1 apple, roughly chopped
½ cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded

Cook the rice according to package directions.

Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds.  Place cut side down on a microwaveable plate and heat in the microwave for 5 minutes.

Cook the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned.  Drain on paper towels.

In a bowl, stir together the rice, sausage and apple.  Place the squash halves in microwavable bowls and fill with the rice mixture.  Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 more minutes.

Remove plastic wrap and top with cheese and microwave for 2 minutes to melt cheese.
