Introduction: 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

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

Filling
ice cream (any flavor)

Garnish
chocolate syrup or sauce
fresh strawberries

Step 2: 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

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

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

Fold both sides of the chocolate tortilla to wrap the ice cream filling.

Step 6: Final Touches

Drizzle with chocolate syrup and garnish with whole or cut strawberries.

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

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

author
Mr. Squishy (author)Plasmana2010-03-06

 Its a Tortilla, you eat it with you hands

author
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)

author

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

author

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

author

Taco trucks are awesome :D

author

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

author
Megrathea69 (author)2011-08-06

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

author
PKTraceur (author)2009-03-04

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

author

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

author

author
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!

author
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

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

author
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.
