Make It Cheap Monday - Cinco de Mayo Dessert!

My camera officially died so I'm shopping for a new one. Sadly, I just bought that camera in August so if I had been smart and saved the receipt, the warranty would still be in effect. However, I never remember to save receipts. Gosh darn it.

Anyhow, I'm carefully researching various cameras before I buy a new one so if you have a camera you love, leave me a comment about it - I need all the input I can get. :)

Cinco de Mayo is coming up and since my husband has Hispanic ancestors, I thought I would share a dessert I came up with recently that would be fabulous for a Cinco de Mayo party.

Or if you're like me and so ethnically white that you're practically albino and don't have anybody to celebrate Hispanic holidays with, this is a great light and refreshing Spring dessert.


Cinco de Mayo Blackberry Tortilla Wraps (printable recipe)
Serves 4

1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. spanish vanilla extract
1/4 - 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 pint blackberries
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
4 raw tortillas (Tortilla Land makes the best ones and are available at Costco and Walmart)
2 tbsp. butter, melted
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon


In a large bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Then beat in vanilla and powdered sugar until just combined.

Combine blackberries and 1 tbsp. granulated sugar. Set aside. Brush butter over both sides of each tortilla. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon together; sprinkle onto each tortilla.

In a skillet heated to medium heat, place the tortillas, one at a time. Allow the tortilla to toast up and get golden brown, flip and cook until golden brown again. While the tortillas are still warm, spoon a 1/4 of the blackberries into the center, roll up. Top with the whipped cream and enjoy!

  1. The question is, what camera did you have before? ☺
    I'm partial to Canon's and since you wanted to stick with a P&S, the powershot series are nice.

  3. Oh,that looks just lovely! I have a little girl who loves blackberries more than just about anything in the world. She'd be one happy little camper if her mama served these up... thanks for sharing!

  4. Annette - I had a Kodak something or other. It was okay but not all that fantastic. I'm glad you recommended Canon's powershot series. I've been hearing good things about them. :)

    JessieLeigh - I hope she enjoys them! I'm still trying to convince my daughter to TRY a blackberry. She's scared of them for whatever reason.
