Flour tortillas or sweet milk tortillas
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup pureed fresh strawberries
1 (12-ounce) package frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
2 cups sliced strawberries
INSTRUCTIONS: To prepare the filling: Combine the cream cheese, sour cream,
vanilla and powdered sugar in the bowl of a mixer; beat until fluffy. Set aside.
To prepare the sauce: Combine the butter, orange juice, sugar, salt and pureed
strawberries in a 3-quart saucepan.
Put the raspberries in mesh sieve and push them through with a wooden spoon.
Be sure to scape off the puree clinging to bottom of the sieve. Add the
raspberry puree to the mixture in the saucepan. Simmer for 8 minutes, until
thickened to a sauce consistency. Remove from heat. Stir in the sliced
To assemble: Butter a 10 x 13-inch baking dish. Place about 2 rounded
tablespoons of the filling down the center of each tortilla. Fold the sides over
the filling. Place seam-side down in the baking dish. Assemble no more than 1
hour in advance so the tortillas don't become soggy.
Bake the enchiladas in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or
until the filling is puffed.
To serve: Place each enchilada on a dessert plate, pour a generous 1/4 cup of
the sauce over each, then dust with powdered sugar.
Note: Fresh, uncooked flour tortillas are available in the cheese section of
some large supermarkets. They may be used in place of Sweet Milk Tortillas.
