Is the marshmallow cream necessary?

When you are making this recipe it calls for both cream cheese and marshmallow cream. In order to get the wonderful, slightly light flavor of the delicious cream cheese chimichangas you will want to use the marshmallow cream. 

It provides the slightly airy texture of the marshmallow and lightens up the normally dense cream cheese to create the best filling.

Flavors for chimichangas 

If you want to make this recipe even fancier you can spice it up by using different flavors and mix-in ingredients.

However, it is not necessary because this recipe is tasty as is, but let me give you a few flavor options!  

Chimichanga flavors that will taste amazing!

  • Lemon cream cheese
  • Strawberry cream cheese
  • Blueberry cream cheese
  • Brown sugar cinnamon cream cheese

Simply replace the plain cream cheese with one of the flavors above.

 

How to Make Air Fryer Cream Cheese Chimichangas:

Step 1: Prepare the filling

When you are ready begin by beating together the cream cheese, marshmallow cream, sugar, and vanilla extract.

Once the filling is made up, preheat the air fryer basket to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C for 5 minutes. 

 

Step 2: Prepare the chimichanga

Get out the tortilla and spoon about 2 tbsp or so, or to taste, onto the middle of the tortilla. 

Another option, if you want a little flavor, add and mix in a spoonful of your favorite jam into the cream cheese mixture (per tortilla).

Fold the top and bottom of the tortilla in, then the sides. To help the tortillas stay sealed you can spread a little bit of butter on the tortilla edges. 

Step 3: Make the cinnamon sugar topping 

Mix together cinnamon and sugar to make the topping mixture.

After the cinnamon sugar is mixed, spray the outside of the chimichangas with oil then roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Step 4: Cook the chimichangas 

Once you have the chimichanga topped with the delicious cinnamon sugar mixture, place them in the air fryer basket. 

When the chimichangas are in the air fryer basket, turn the air fry on for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C, flipping the chimichangas at the halfway point.

Remove and enjoy. If desired, roll in an additional cinnamon sugar mixture.
