  • 6 (8-inch) whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 6 Apples

  • 1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  • 11/2 teaspoons Brown Sugar

  • 1 teaspoon Ground cinnamon
  1. Peel, core and slice apples.

  6. Soften tortillas by heating them up for a few seconds on a warm “comal” while being careful not to burn them; a skillet or shallow pan can also be used.
  7. Place soft tortillas on a flat surface; one by one spread a small amount of sauce on the tortilla and fill evenly with apple filling.
  8. Roll up tortillas and place side by side, seam side down, in the baking pan you prepared in step #3 (toothpicks can also be used to keep tortillas from unrolling).
