Peanut Butter-Banana Dessert Enchiladas


Peanut Butter-Banana Dessert Enchiladas ingredients

For the filling
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, at room temperature
1/3 cup Smooth Operator peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
2 medium size ripe bananas, coarsely chopped
6 flour tortillas

For the sauce
1 cup Smooth Operator peanut butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or in a bowl with a hand-held mixer, beat the cream cheese and peanut butter together until smooth. Add the sugar, vanilla, and cream and mix until combined. Fold in the chopped bananas.

3. To make the sauce, combine the peanut butter, cream, sugar, and corn syrup together in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar and peanut butter. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until thickened.

4. Pour enough of the sauce into the prepared dish to barely cover the bottom. Spoon the filling into the tortillas and place seam-side down in the dish. Spoon more sauce over the top. Bake uncovered until sauce is bubbly and enchiladas are warmed through, about 15 minutes.

    Your recipe sounds amazing! I’m not quite that creative, but I do love apple dumplings. Maybe a bit of peanut butter in those would be yummy!

    I’d use it on pancakes.

  3. Shoshi says:

    I would make a vegan version of your sauce and use it on vegan coconut ice cream. I would also try it on oatmeal.

    i would make a vegan/dairy free version as well and put it on baked apples

    I would love to use this sauce on pancakes and waffles and maybe even drizzled on oatmeal.

    The enchiladas are a clever idea. This would be great over ice cream or on an angel food or pound cake. This may also be great for waffles.

    Um, everything?! I think it would be good to try it with a soft pretzel for some salty sweet action.

    I think the sauce would work well in a granola parfait.

    Mixing it with yogurt or making frozen banana bites with the sauce as the filling

    Core some apples and blob the sauce inside. Or just, you know, chop up an apple, put it in the bowl of sauce and eat the whole thing with a spoon.

  15. Lesli says:

    This would be great on waffles, ice cream, apples, anything chocolate… it looks delicious!

  16. Amy P says:

    Crepes, pancakes, pound cake, rice cakes, popcorn…what wouldn’t it be good on?

  19. Marco says:

    With it being national oatmeal day, and seeing how I would put just about anything in my morning oats, I’d mix it in with oatmeal!

  20. Michelle says:

    I would make a vegan variation on the sauce and top on non dairy ice cream or muffins!

    This would be great in hot fudge sundaes.
