Spatula mix onto tortilla in rectangle form, offset from the middle. Fold sides in first, bottom second, and roll to top. Ensure that it is sealed all the way around. Roll in wax paper and freeze.
When ready to prepare/serve, remove fully frozen chimi and fry immediately in 350 degrees F oil for approximately three to four-minutes. Remove from oil allow to drain. Roll in cinnamon sugar. Cut in half on an angle. Serve in a puddle of caramel and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This was hard to follow because there were no measurements. I had to just wing it and even though it turned out tasty, it would have been less frustrating to have actual measurements to use. I give it 5 stars for flavor but 3 overall.
