Ingredients to make peach pie enchiladas.

Peach Pie Enchiladas Ingredients

  • Flour Tortillas
  • Peach Pie Filling
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Salted Butter
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Light Brown Sugar
  • Water

This fun spin on peach pie comes together quickly since there isn’t any pie crust involved! Instead, taking its place are flour tortillas that you can grab right at the store or make from scratch if you prefer.

The canned peach pie filling can also be swapped out for homemade if you’d like. The filling in my Southern Peach Cobbler is made with canned peaches and would make an excellent filling choice in these enchiladas!

However, when making this recipe, I typically like to keep it quick and easy. Therefore I grab the storebought tortillas and canned filling.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Butter – If all you have is unsalted butter on hand, that can be used instead of salted butter. To make the swap, just a 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the peach sauce mixture in the saucepan.
  • Fruit Filling – Try a different canned fruit filling, such as canned apple pie filling, for a tasty dessert enchilada variation. Just don’t forget to serve it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
  • Lemon Juice – Since this dessert is very sweet, you can add a bit of tartness to it by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to the pie filling. Once the lemon juice is added to the canned filling, make sure to stir it together before dividing it between the tortillas.
  • Garnishes – Garnish each enchilada with a fresh peach slice or fresh mint sprig.

How To Serve Peach Pie Enchiladas

These dessert enchiladas are best served warm in a shallow dessert bowl with a generous scoop of ice cream or a heaping dollop of Homemade Whipped Cream! Vanilla ice cream or even peach ice cream would go well with this dessert!

However, they are also completely delicious as is as well!

Storing Peach Pie Enchiladas

Once the enchiladas have cooled completely, the dish can either be tightly covered with plastic wrap or transferred into an airtight container. Afterward, store them in the fridge to enjoy for 3 to 4 days.

How To Reheat Dessert Enchiladas

Reheat leftovers on a baking sheet or in an oven-safe dish and loosely cover them with aluminum foil. Then transfer them into the oven at 350 degrees F to heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until they’re completely warm.

You can also reheat any leftovers, however, the texture of the tortilla may be slightly different than when they’re reheated in the oven.

To reheat them in the microwave, place one enchilada on a microwave-safe plate and heat it for 30 to 60 seconds or until it’s completely warm.

Peach Pie Enchiladas FAQs

Why did my peach pie sauce turn out runny?

If the peach pie sauce came out runny, it could be that too much water was added to the can or that the sauce wasn’t cooked down long enough. Be sure to only add 1/4 cup of water and cook it until it turns to a slow boil.

You can try adding cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it up a bit.

Can you make peach pie filling ahead of time?

Yes, homemade peach pie filling can be made ahead of time and then stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Making the filling ahead of time would make for an easier dessert prep when you’re ready to make these enchiladas!

When is peach pie season?

Peaches are a summertime fruit that has a harvest season from about May to September. Making Peach Pie more of a seasonal treat enjoyed at picnics and BBQs.

However, when if you love peach pie enough, it’s a welcome dessert any time of the year! And since this peach pie recipe is made with store-bought canned filling, you can make it no matter what month it is.

How can I make gluten-free peach pie enchiladas?

To make this recipe gluten-free, just swap out the flour tortillas for gluten-free tortillas!

Can I make peach enchiladas with extra-large tortillas instead of 8-inch ones?

Yes, however, you will need to make more filling to ensure you can fill 6 extra-large tortillas.

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 (21oz.) can Peach Pie Filling I use Lucky Leaf but you can make your own homemade filling if you prefer
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup salted butter
  • cup granulated sugar
  • cup light brown sugar packed

Topping

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with softened butter or cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Warm up the 6 8-inch flour tortillas in the microwave for about 10 seconds to soften them up and make them easier to work with.
  • Divide 1 (21oz.) can Peach Pie Filling evenly among the tortillas, placing the filling down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of the 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon on top of the peach filling on each tortilla.
  • Roll up each tortilla and place them seam-side down in the prepared baking dish.
  • There will be some peach pie left in the bottom of the pie filling can. Pour ¼ cup water into the can and stir to release the filling and make a sauce.
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, add ½ cup salted butter, ⅓ cup granulated sugar, ⅓ cup light brown sugar, and the peach water in the can. Stir until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a slow boil, then remove from heat.
  • Carefully pour the mixture over the tortillas in the baking dish, making sure to coat them all evenly.
  • Mix together ¼ cup granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture over the top of the enchiladas.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the enchiladas are golden brown and bubbling. I like to broil them for 1 to 2 minutes after baking to help caramelize the top coating.
