Inspired by a dessert my daughter and I shared at a local Latin American restaurant that closed a couple of years ago. I decided to use some of an abundance of tortillas I had to make a tortilla wrapped banana dessert.
As I only had my sketchy memory to go by, I decided to make it my own and combine the wrapped banana with elements from one of my favorite “Mexican” dishes from my high school days, “fried ice cream.” Thus, I rolled the fried wrap in a cinnamon and sugar mixture and drizzled it with honey. Yum!
I do not remember what the restaurant called it, but I know they did not call it a banana chimichanga . Since it is a lot like a burrito and it is fried, I thought the name chimichanga fit. Update: My daughter tells me the restaurant called it a fried banana split and they did serve it with ice cream.
