Caramel and apples.  These classic fall ingredients are simply delicious when pocketed between two Mission Soft Flour Tortillas and grilled on a stovetop. Keep it simple by using prepared apple pie filling and store-bought caramel. Caramel Apple Pie Quesadillas are the perfect quick substitute for homemade apple pie without all of the preparation work of slicing apples and making homemade pie crust. Topped with cinnamon sugar, these pies look as good as they taste with just five minutes of prep and ten minutes in the pan. The super soft texture of the flour tortilla makes the perfect crust. Make one. Or two or more.  Delicious served warm. How about a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream to go with it?

This seven ingredient Savory Apple Pie Dip is the perfect seasonal snack for all the apple pie lovers on your team. Just one bag of Mission Thin and Crispy Tortilla Chips serves eight hungry snackers. You won’t make them wait long with this 15 minute start to finish three step recipe. Start by melting butter and adding cinnamon, salt and cayenne pepper. Then add a sliced onion, a diced apple, and white wine or apple juice to the pan. Tender within ten minutes, the dip is smoothed to perfection by blending quickly in a food processor. Pour into a serving bowl and surround it with the chips and even some extra thin sliced apples. Traditional Mexican flavor meets savory apple goodness in this one. 

These Apple Pie Fold-Overs may just be the end of baking traditional apple pie! Prepare Soft Taco Flour Tortillas in a skillet with a brush of butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar and heat to golden brown. Make the easy apple filling using six peeled and chopped apples cooked with a traditional blend of brown sugar and cinnamon. Then fill the tortilla with the apples and simply fold over. Drizzle with a sugar-based glaze squeezed from a small plastic bag with the tip cut open when ready to serve. Garnish with fresh berries, mint leaves, and whipped cream. These fold-overs are best served warm, but the smell of the apples cooking will bring them to the table before you are even ready. They won’t have to wait long. The Cooking time is just ten minutes.

Apple Pie Tacos? These are not your regular tacos! Warm up your store-purchased apple pie filling while you cook Mission Street Tacos Flour Tortillas in butter over medium heat in a skillet. Sprinkle the tortillas with cinnamon and sugar and while still warm, fold the tortillas in a U shape and place in a muffin pan to make taco shells.  When your guests arrive, fill the tacos with the warm pie filling. Drizzle with maple syrup and add a dollop of sour cream. It’s a unique twist on apple pie with fresh-baked homemade taste. 

Save time in the kitchen and still serve the best of the season. Apples are always a holiday time favorite tradition.
