Our Favorite Dessert Recipes With Tortillas

Feb. 9, 2021

Did you know that tortillas make an excellent and fun base for delicious, easy dessert recipes? Everything you usually make with a tortilla (tacos, quesadillas, tostadas, roll-ups, and taquitos) can be made dessert-style by adding something sweet. Cold or heated, check out these fun recipes! 

Nutella 

A delicious hazelnut and chocolate spread, Nutella goes perfectly with almost any fruit!

  1. Fruit Skewers with Nutella Roll-Ups
  2. Nutella and Banana Roll-Ups
  3. Raspberry Nutella Tortilla Roll-Ups

Not a fan of Nutella? Sub-in cream cheese, Greek yogurt, or fruit jams if you prefer! Want to add some crunch? A bit of granola or crushed nuts will do the trick. You can even freeze these roll-up bites to enjoy as a quick snack at a later date.

Tostadas

Tostadas are like open-faced tacos, served on a crunchy flat tortilla. 

  1. You can use one of our already baked tostadas to make a Fruity Feta Tostada.
  2. Or, lightly fry our tortillas in a bit of oil like in this Pineapple Foster Rum-Soaked Tostada recipe. 
  3. Our Fruity Dessert Tortillas recipe simply adds fruit on top and warms the tortilla with a bit of butter.

Quesadillas

These tasty dessert quesadillas are crispy on the outside and warm and gooey on the inside. What’s not to love?

  1. Caramel Apple Pie Quesadilla uses apple filling, a drizzle of caramel, and a topping of cinnamon sugar for all the flavors of apple pie without all the work! 
  2. Did someone say s’mores? This Mexican Chocolate S’mores Quesadilla combines hazelnut chocolate spread, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and shortbread cookie crumbles with a kick of cayenne pepper (add as much or as little as you want!)
  3. Or try our Caramelized Plantain Quesadilla for something a bit different. Plantains are a starchier relative of the banana, and in this recipe, they’re fried in butter until golden brown! Once fried, they’re combined with a delicious cream cheese, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla filling and topped with whipped cream, caramel, and chocolate sauce. Wow!
  4. The Strawberry Cheesecake Quesadilla also uses a delectable cream cheese filling and has a fresh pop of strawberries and homemade whipped cream to really make it special.

Dessert tacos make mini, easy desserts perfect for smaller hands! 

  1. These Apple Pie Tacos combine warmed apple filling with butter, cinnamon, and sugar. They’re then topped with maple syrup and sour cream for another easy yet comforting combination. 
  2. Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey Street Tacos - need we say more? 
  3. This simple dessert option, Berry Cream Cheese Tacos, is great when you want something sweet and fresh. With strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and cream cheese, you can’t go wrong!
