directions

  • In a heavy skillet, pour oil to the depth of 1/2-inch.
  • Heat oil over medium heat.
  • When oil is hot, fry tortillas, one at a time, for about 30-40 seconds on each side. (Press down tortilla with a fork, if it starts to puff up while frying).
  • Drain fried tortillas on paper towels.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle each fried tortilla with the cinnamon sugar mixture while they are still warm.
  • Set fried tortillas aside to cool.
  • When you are ready to serve, place a generous scoop of cinnamon ice cream on top of each tortilla.
  • Drizzle each tortilla and ice cream with chocolate syrup.
  • Place one cherry on top of each scoop of ice cream.
  • Serve immediately.
  • ~NOTE~ The tortillas can be fried up ahead of time and stored in an air tight container.
  • ~NOTE~ If you can't find cinnamon ice cream at your store, you can either make it homemade or use vanilla instead. My family likes BlueBell's "bunuelos" flavored ice cream for these sundaes.

    This was a delight! Like Scancan I, too, used hot fudge sauce (I like it so much better) and followed the suggestions (and Julie's great photo!) to shape the tortillas into bowl shapes. In my book, the cinnamon is the star compliment for the dish! This makes a good way to finish a Mexican meal or a delicious treat to serve anytime! Thanks!

    What a fabulous dessert. We so enjoyed this. I served this with hot fudge sauce and it looked and tasted amazing.

    Oh Wow...what's not to love!!! I too, didn't find the cinnamon ice cream but that was just fine by me! I fried the tortilla, flipped it over and added a generous amount of the cinnamon/sugar mix while it was still in the pan. When I took it out we (ds and I) sprinkled the other side generously too. It was SO GOOD! I tell you it was as good as the ice cream I got at Mexico Restaurant the last time we went. Thank you Kim D!!! I will be making this again and again! Made during ZWT3 by a Floozie - Remembering Amy.

    Followed ellie's suggestion and used my petite tortilla bakers to fashion edible bowls for the sundaes. The closest thing I could find to the recommended ice cream was Ben & Jerry's Cinnamon Buns so I used that-oh gosh, I feel another addiction coming on! The kids loved the treats as did I. Thanks for sharing Kim, made for ZWT3.

<p><br /><br />The picture is of me and my husband at the Grand Canyon - November 2008. <br /><br />I've just started a food blog and would love for those interested in cooking and recipes to check it out. You can follow my food journey at <a href=http://onecookbookatathyme.wordpress.com/>http://onecookbookatathyme.wordpress.com/</a></p> <p>Cooking for family and friends is one of my favorite things to do. I spend most of my free time in the kitchen, either checking out Recipezaar or experimenting with a newly found recipe. <br /><br />My DH and I are both from Texas and we both come from Italian families. Anyone who stops by my house should be prepared to eat!!! I'm always forcing friends and family to try whatever it is that just came out of the oven. I know that is a horrible habit but I can't break it... I think it must be the Italian in me! LOL :) <br /><br />My sister (<a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=85654>Cookin_Kit</a>) and I used to help my Mom (<a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=124343>JudaThann</a>) in the kitchen a lot growing up. I guess that is where my love for cooking began. I also enjoy sharing the kitchen with my DH (<a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=202688>Sgt. Pepper</a>). He doesn't cook as often as he did when we first got married, but he makes an awesome pizza and still makes them at least twice a month. He keeps his recipes for the dough and the sauce top secret, even from me. LOL <br /><br />I have two step-children. The oldest graduated from college and the youngest is a sophomore at Texas Tech. I also have two cats and a dog. When I?m not cooking or hanging out here at Zaar, I like to knit, garden, read, watch old movies, travel, take photos, scrapbook, volunteer at a non-kill animal shelter, and spend time with my family and friends. <br /><br /><img src=http://images.snapfish.com/34359%3C8323232%7Ffp47%3Dot%3E232%3A%3D8%3A3%3D429%3DXROQDF%3E23237%3C2733%3B9%3Bot1lsi alt= /> <br /><br />I'm a co-host with <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/browse/getchef.zsp?id=21399>Karen From Colorado</a> in the <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum?f=37>Mexican/Tex-Mex/Southern United States Cooking Forum</a>.
