Strawberry Nutella Cheesecake Flautas

Hello and Happy Summer! I am so glad to be back here this month from Old House to New Home sharing a delicious summertime dessert recipe! Summer nights are the perfect time for dessert and after a long hot day, nothing tastes better than a bowl of ice cream…or so I thought. You know what makes a bowl of ice cream taste even better? A crispy cinnamon sugar tortilla stuffed with a layer of sweet cream cheese, a smear of nutella, and then topped with fresh bursts of strawberries dunked into that ice cream! So refreshing and delicious!

If you aren’t familiar with flautas, they are a tortilla rolled up, typically filled with chicken and cheese, and topped with a white cream sauce. They are usually fried until crispy,  but my method bakes them, so make them slightly healthier, ya know, so I can fill them with cream cheese and nutella! Flautas are one of my favorite Mexican restaurant dishes, and this dessert version definitely does not disappoint.

For the sake of research, I made lots of different varieties of these little guys, and the cream cheese nutella version was our family favorite. I stuffed one with strawberries, chocolate chips, and marshmallows for a s’more variety and it is a great alternative if you aren’t a nutella fan! You could also just leave out the nutella and make them strawberry cheesecake with just the sweetened cream cheese.

We dunked ours into a delicious vanilla bean frozen yogurt, topped with even more strawberries, which I think was the perfect combination of flavors.
