How to Make Air Fryer Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichanga

  • In a medium-sized bowl using a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until fluffy. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the whipped topping and set aside.
  • On a clean work, surface place a tortilla shell and spread a ¼ cup of the cheesecake mixture into the center. Top with 2 heaping spoonfuls of the strawberry filling.
  • Take two sides and fold over, take the bottom and fold it to the top and bring it in. Then roll up the chimichanga. Repeat until all the cheesecake mixture and strawberry topping are used up.

Tips Tricks and FAQS

  • Try using another type of pie filling flavor that you love to change the taste of this recipe. 
  • This recipe is best when you use flour tortillas. I do not recommend using corn tortillas. 
  • You will want to use full-fat cream cheese when making this recipe.
  • Be sure you allow your cream cheese to come to room temperature so that it can become very smooth as it is mixed. Cold cream cheese will cause it to lump together.
  • Do not overfill the tortillas. If you overfill them, they will leak out into the air fryer. 
  • Try rolling these tortillas as tightly as possible without having the filling leak or ripping your tortillas.
  • Be sure to roll your chimichangas in the cinnamon sugar mixture as soon as you remove them from the air fryer. This ensures it will stick to your chimichanga. 
  • Double the recipe as needed. You could also halve the recipe as well.

Storage

These are best enjoyed hot and fresh right out of the air fryer. 

To store, you will want to cover these tightly with plastic wrap and place them in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Reheating

To reheat these, it is best to place them back in the air fryer for a minute or two until your desired temperature. Once done, roll them in the cinnamon sugar again.
