4-Berry Chimichangas Ingredients
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 tablespoons four-berry preserves, plus more for serving
- Four 6-inch flour tortillas
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 limes, zested
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 2 cups mixed strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries, for garnish
- Canned whipped cream, for serving
4-Berry Chimichangas Directions
- Put the cream cheese and preserves in a small bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
- Lay out the tortillas and place a quarter of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each, spreading the mixture out so there is a 3/4-inch border around the edge. Fold in 2 of the opposite sides of each tortilla and roll to form a small burrito. Set aside.
- Combine the sugar and lime zest on a small plate.
- Heat 1 inch of the vegetable oil in a large skillet to 325 degrees F. Carefully fry the chimichangas until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove from the oil and toss in the lime sugar.
- Serve immediately, topped with the berries and whipped cream. Accompany with some extra preserves on the side.
- Fruit : In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants that is formed from the ovary after flowering.
Fruits are the means by which flowering plants (also known as angiosperms) disseminate their seeds. Edible fruits in particular have long propagated using the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship that is the means for seed dispersal for the one group and nutrition for the other; in fact, humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Consequently, fruits account for a substantial fraction of the world's agricultural output, and some (such as the apple and the pomegranate) have acquired extensive cultural and symbolic meanings.
In common language usage, “fruit” normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures (or produce) of plants that typically are sweet or sour and edible in the raw state, such as apples, bananas, grapes, lemons, oranges, and strawberries. In botanical usage, the term “fruit” also includes many structures that are not commonly called “fruits”, such as nuts, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, and wheat grains.
- Dessert : Dessert (/dɪˈzɜːrt/) is a course that concludes a meal. The course consists of sweet foods, such as confections, and possibly a beverage such as dessert wine and liqueur. In some parts of the world, such as much of Central Africa and West Africa, and most parts of China, there is no tradition of a dessert course to conclude a meal.
The term dessert can apply to many confections, such as biscuits, cakes, cookies, custards, gelatins, ice creams, pastries, pies, puddings, macaroons, sweet soups, tarts and fruit salad. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its naturally occurring sweetness. Some cultures sweeten foods that are more commonly savory to create desserts.
