Banana Enchilada #SundayFunday

Bananas enfolded in a cream cheese filling, wrapped in a flour tortilla, drenched with caramel sauce and garnished with minted stawberries and whipped cream.  What a fun and delicious way to end your Cinco de Mayo Fiesta.


The Sunday Funday Bloggers are sharing Fruity Desserts today..............

Sneha of Sneha's Recipe is hosting our group this month.  She asked us to share fruity desserts.  I have been on a Cinco de Mayo kick as I normally am this time of year.  In the past couple of weeks I have shared recipes for Tres Leches Cake, Kung Pao Tacos, and a Mexican Chopped Salad.  Today I decided to make these enchiladas containing both bananas and strawberries.  Let's see what fruity desserts the others are sharing..........



Start by macerating the strawberries.  Slice into coins sprinkle with a little sugar and chopped mint and let them set at room temperature until you are ready to serve.


Next, make the filling, a mixture of cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk into which you will fold in 1 banana that has been coarsely chopped.


Place a layer of caramel sauce in the bottom of an 8" square baking pan.  Place the enchiladas into the pan seam side down and top with more caramel.


Bake until hot and bubbly.  Plate top with some of the strawberries and serve with sweet whipped cream.
