Nutella Chimichangas - Pompeian "Time to Change your oil"

I have so many friends that speak very highly of these, so I chose to revamp this recipe (because it's bliss) and use some new oil and flavors.

Banana Nutella Chimichangas 
(Thanks to Dessert for Two for the idea!)

Pompeian's Grapeseed Oil 

2 flour tortillas (taco size)

1 banana

2 tablespoons of Nutella

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional but I highly advise it)

Chopped hazelnuts (about a handful) (optional)


*Heat the Pompeian's  grapeseed oil in a pan

*Mix cinnamon, cayenne and hazelnuts in a bowl

*Slice the bananas and put into the cinnamon mixture. Shake until the bananas are evenly coated

*Lay out tortillas, put one tablespoon of Nutella in the center of the tortillas but more to one side than the other.

*Put ½ of the banana mixture over the top of the Nutella.

*Roll the tortilla; make sure to tuck the sides in as you tightly roll so the contents don’t spill out as you fry them.

*Put a toothpick in the tortilla to hold it all together. (I use two toothpicks; it is okay to fry toothpicks.)

*Place the happily rolled tortilla in the oil and fry, turning until it is a lovely golden brown.

*Remove it from the oil and place on a paper towel to let it cool and drain.

*Enjoy, be prepared to make more, these are delightful.
