Apricot Burritos

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


8 burritos

These apricot-filled burritos are popular with my son and his friends. I usually have a plateful ready for them as a sweet after-school snack. It's easy since they can be together in minutes.—Charl Sanchez, Roseville, California


  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 8 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  • Oil for frying
  • Cinnamon-sugar


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first six ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until thickened. Place 1 tablespoon on each tortilla. Fold sides and ends over filling; roll up.
  2. In an electric skillet, heat 1 in. of oil to 375°. Fry burritos, in batches, for 1 minute on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.

    Great recipe, and I made it with Splenda sugar and splenda brown sugar blend. Going to try using other dried fruits next time, much healthier version of a toaster strudel!
