It is my birthday this week & the one thing that I really, really wanted to do was..well it was two parts: (1) go peach picking and (2) make homemade peach enchiladas.
If you’ve never even heard of peach enchiladas, there’s a place down in South Carolina off of Highway 252 called, Mac Pride’s or MacLeod’s Peaches.
They are known for their peaches and peach enchiladas and a host of other things, but I had to have my own homemade peaches and peach enchiladas for my birthday & and I did! *happy dance*
I had never made my own peach enchiladas, but on top of that, a friend had given me this recipe years and years ago (actually 10 years ago, in 2009 to be exact). And I never made them.
He knew that I liked to cook and bake and so he said, “You’ve got to try and make these.” What intrigued me about this recipe was the fact that it was made with soda. I knew then that you had to add either 7up or Mountain Dew to this recipe to make it complete and I liked that. I kind of liked the idea of having to add soda to it. I don’t know why.
Anyways, it’s been years. We actually went to Mac’s Pride last year and had to get their peach enchiladas. So this year, I was making my own!
Here is the recipe that I used to make my enchiladas:
2 (8 oz cans) of crescent rolls
1 cup of butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
4 blanched peaches, cooled and quartered
12 oz. of Mountain Dew Soda
Melt butter and then add cinnamon and sugar until blended and set aside.
Unroll crescent dough and place 1-2 peach quarters on each crescent.
Roll dough around the peach, the same way you roll the dough for the crescent shape.
Place in a 9 x 13 pan.
Pour the melted butter mixture over the rolls, then pour over with the Mountain Dew.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, uncovered.
Bonus: Serve with homemade French vanilla ice cream or your favorite, good quality vanilla ice cream from the store.
I absolutely LOVED making this recipe! And my kids loved going and picking their own peaches and making it too!
