Cheesecake Taquitos


Cheesecake Taquitos have a silky-smooth cheesecake filling wrapped inside a crispy flour tortilla that’s been rolled in cinnamon and sugar. We like to enjoy ours with strawberries and whipped cream. Yum!

Cheesecake_Taquitos_MAINWrapping up Cinco de Mayo recipes this week with dessert, of course! 🙂 Let me introduce you to Cheesecake Taquitos. These fun dessert taquitos are utterly divine! 

I debated on what dessert to share for Cinco de Mayo week when a little light bulb went off in my mind. 🙂 I saw Cheesecake Chimichangas, and although they looked amazing, I wasn’t in the mood to deep-fry anything. That’s when I decided to roll up my favorite cheesecake filling with small flour tortillas, roll them in cinnamon and sugar and bake them to perfection. It worked like magic!Cheesecake_Taquitos8The center of these baked Taquitos is silky smooth with a super easy cheesecake filling. The cinnamon sugar topping over the crispy tortillas makes them even more amazing. We enjoyed ours with sliced strawberries and whipped cream, and they were gone in no time! Next time, were thinking of dunking them in melted chocolate. 😀 Oh, yeah.

    1. I think it’s possible, but i’ve not tried it. If you do try it then I would reheat them in the oven, not the microwave, so the tortillas get crispy again and the filling gets nice and warm.

  1. I added some apples I softened with a little water and sugar in the microwave for 20 seconds in the center. AH-MAZE-ING!!

  2. Totally made these. Made ahead. Baked 2-3 hours later. Put caramel sauce on top. They were a huge hit!!

  3. These were so easy and fun to make. They are very tasty as well if you like simple desserts. I tend to get into more involved cheesecake flavors but this recipe was perfect for some leftover tortilla shells that I had.
