Introduction: Chocolate Tortilla Ice Cream Enchilada

Picture of Chocolate Tortilla Ice Cream Enchilada

Made this wonderful discovery at a small, hole in the wall cafe in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Of course the chef wouldn't reveal her secret, but I searched for chocolate tortilla recipes and have to admit this dessert is pretty close to hers!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

Chocolate Tortilla
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
dash of salt

ice cream (any flavor)

chocolate syrup or sauce
fresh strawberries

Step 2: Mix Ingredients & Set Aside for 2 Hours

Picture of Mix Ingredients & Set Aside for 2 Hours

Combine ingredients and hand mix for about 5 minutes until texture is smooth.
Cover and store in refrigerator for about 2 hours.

Step 3: Making Tortillas

Picture of Making Tortillas

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Pour 1/4 cup mixture in center and tilt pan to spread batter into a circle.
Let cook for about 2 minutes then flip to cook other side for another 1-2 minutes.
Be careful not to burn or else the tortilla will be too stiff for folding.

Step 4: Add Ice Cream Filling

Picture of Add Ice Cream Filling

Add 3 to 4 heaping spoons of your favorite ice cream on top of the chocolate tortilla.
I used strawberry.

Step 5: Making the Enchilada

Which restaurant did you go to in Albuquerque? I'm moving there soon :)

Mr. Squishy (author)2009-03-17

Don't you need to fold up the bottom of the tortilla? Because the Ice cream will fall out if you don't.

raceryz350 (author)Mr. Squishy2010-01-31

ever heard of looks?

Mr. Squishy (author)raceryz3502010-01-31


raceryz350 (author)Mr. Squishy2010-02-20

its supposed to look cool duh

Mr. Squishy (author)raceryz3502010-03-06

 No, it needs to work out, not look cool.

reno91132 (author)Mr. Squishy2010-07-12

Its a enchilada. Not a taco or a burrito. learn your food.

lkuziez9680 (author)reno911322011-06-21

dont know about you but it actually looks more like a crepe to me

mr magic (author)lkuziez96802011-08-29

yeah I reckon I'ts a crepe too

Plasmana (author)Mr. Squishy2010-03-06

Not on this type of dish, you are supposed use knives and forks. :)

Mr. Squishy (author)Plasmana2010-03-06

 Its a Tortilla, you eat it with you hands

lunarmagpie (author)Mr. Squishy2010-03-07

have you ever had an enchilada? you'd make a big mess if you tried eating one with your hands.

i think you're thinking of a burro (burrito), but you can even eat those with a fork and knife if you want. there's no rules.

trust me, i live in tucson -- we practically live on mexican food here!  :o)

im in modesto california, and im mexican, so everyday is mexican day, lol

I live in Fresno, CA, there is TON of Mexicans here. (Also some good taco trucks :-))

Taco trucks are awesome :D

I know right? There is no reason why they are awesome they just are

Megrathea69 (author)2011-08-06

What about using white or milk chocolate for the tortilla and putting dark chocolate or fruit in sauce inside

PKTraceur (author)2009-03-04

Isnt this a chocolate crepe filled with icecream? Schweet! -PKT

crepes consist of mainly eggs, dont they? have kind of an eggy taste i believe

not really. crepes are mah fave breakfast food,so yah.....

sansoy (author)PKTraceur2009-03-04

a few other commenters have said the same thing and probably yes! i did search for a chocolate tortilla recipe and this is the only one i could find. this recipe is a lot thicker than a normal crepe. if you have any ideas on creating a real chocolate tortilla please share!

PKTraceur (author)sansoy2009-03-04

Well, sorry for the recomment, however, since it is thicker, it may be considered a tortilla! Since it is thicker, could you set it like a taco, dip in chocolate, and freeze/refrigerate? Fill with icecream, and eat! -PKT

Sherlock69 (author)2010-09-07

How many Enchilada's would this recipe make??? I have GOT to try this VERY soon!

blufreak806 (author)2010-07-08

I would have to say I can try making a cocoa tortilla but for a bit of a suggestion, I have found that many chocolate deserts especially here near the TX NM CO AZ area try a hint of cinnamon and or nutmeg to the tortilla recipe. It may be the hint of flavor that would make this just like the one in Albq, NM.

stormman1998 (author)2010-05-01

yum  yum gonna make it today :) :) :)

blueberryshark (author)2010-03-18
