  • 8 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/4 C sour cream
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 6 8-inch soft flour tortillas
  • 1 3/4 cups sliced strawberries divided

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment,
  • Beat the cream cheese with the sour cream, 1 tablespoon sugar, vanilla extract and lemon zest, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Fold in 3/4 cup of the sliced strawberries.
  • The tortillas will bend easier if you warm them a little bit in the microwave.
  • Leave them in the package and put them in for 30-45 seconds.
  • Divide the mixture evenly between the tortillas, slathering each portion in the lower third of each tortilla.
  • Next, fold the two sides of each tortilla toward the center and then roll the tortilla up like a burrito and secure it with a toothpick.
  • Repeat the rolling process with the remaining tortillas.
  • Combine the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
  • Set it aside.
  • Set your air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Place the chimichangas in the basket.
  • Spray the chimichanga with some cooking spray.
  • Set the timer for 6 minutes.
  • Remove the chimichangas from the basket.
  • Roll them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  • Remove all toothpicks from the chimichangas.
  • Transfer them to serving plates.
  • Top each sliced strawberries and serve immediately.
