"The contrast of the crunchy tortilla with the warm bananas is to die for. Serve with banana syrup and your favorite ice cream." — Kim Fliehmann

OH MY GOSH! This was awesome & I didn't even make it as chimichangas. I made the banana sauce and served it warm over vanilla ice cream. As an accompaniment, I made cinnamon crisps by cutting flour tortillas into triangles, spraying them with butter and dipping them in cinnamon/sugar. Then, I baked them for about 5 minutes at 400 degrees. I made this after a Mexican Fiesta Bunco Night and the ladies all raved about it. I will make this again and again.
I have made bananas foster before and the recipe is missing the 1 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon. Also- the flour tortillas were too thick and cracked when rolled so I heated mine for 5 seconds and rolled them out with a rolling pin to make them easier to work with. And also, when putting the syrup in the tortilla it was very hot and then frying them made me burn my self. I recommend making the banana mixture and letting it cool before frying to avoid burning your mouth. But excellent idea for the recipe- mine turned out delightful!
OHH! This recipe was good! I made it for dinner, and after making three batches of tortillas and doubling the banana part, we were stuffed! Plus, barely enough leftovers for one person!! I didn't have spiced rum, and just used vanilla extract.
Excellent! Made this for a tropical-themed dinner party and everyone loved it. Definately let the banana mixture cool before you fold it into the tortillas. I made these ahead of time and kept them in the fridge. That gave them time to set so when I fried them they didn't fall apart. I also sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup.
I CANT STOP LICKING MY FINGERS! Seriously, this was AWESOME! I did change a few things...
I drained the liquid from the bananas, and used it to dip them in! It made rolling the tortillas up, much easier. I also warmed the tortillas up in the microwave so it was easier to work with them.
i tried the mix before and after the rum, and trust me, it makes the sauce!
Thanks for an excellent recipie!!
This was delicious! I wasn't sure how the tortilla shell would fry up but it was done in about 1 minute and wasn't too greasy at all!
Very quick and easy to prepare. GREAT tasting too! I only had the 6" tortillas on hand so I could not tuck in the sides and roll. I decided to fold in half. I didn't have spiced rum extract so I used almond extract. Tasted so good!!!! I didn't use a cup of oil but only a small amount to cover the bottom of the pan so the oil would not seep inside. I did brush butter on the top when finished and then sprinkled cinnamon sugar. I drizzled the remaining sauce and hubby ate the first one. Before I got the second one done (which was for me) he asked for another! I made the third one with chopped walnuts in the sauce--also delish!
Made these for hubby and I and we both loved it. I just folded them over like in the pic. I added a little ice cream on the side and decorated with a little stream of chocolate and strawberry syrup. Topped with a cherry. I did use a brown sugar substitute but you couldn't tell. Hubby does not like anything diet, but he didn't know the difference. Will be making this again.
