What You Need To Make This Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Enchiladas with Caramel Drizzle Recipe?
Softened Cream Cheese: It’s essential to have softened cream cheese for our cheesecake filling to achieve a silky and smooth texture. This provides a base that beautifully carries the flavors of pumpkin and spices.
Canned Pumpkin Puree: To capture the essence of the fall season we use canned pumpkin puree, which adds an earthy sweetness. Opting for pure pumpkin puree instead of pie filling ensures a pumpkin flavor without any additional spices or sugar.
Granulated Sugar: We add the amount of granulated sugar to sweeten the filling creating a delightful balance that perfectly complements the pumpkin and spices.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend: This recipe’s star ingredient brings in notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. With its autumn-inspired aroma, it infuses our enchiladas with the essence of the season.
Cool Whip: Adding whip to our filling gives it a fluffy texture. While store-bought cool whip is convenient you can also make your whipped cream for a homemade touch.
Flour Tortillas: Here comes an unexpected twist in this dessert. The neutral taste and soft texture of flour tortillas make them an ideal vessel for the cheesecake filling offering a contrast, to graham cracker crusts.
Melted Butter, Sugar, and Cinnamon Mixture: When brushed over the tortillas before serving this trio caramelizes slightly—adding a crunch and hint of warmth that beautifully complements the creamy filling.
Caramel Sauce: The touch of decadence. Whether generously poured or provided as a dipping option it brings a sticky sweetness that perfectly complements all the flavors.
