What do you do with leftover flour tortillas? Make Nutella Peanut Butter Banana S’more Burritos!
Every. Time. I buy tortillas, I ALWAYS have leftovers. It’s probably because whenever I make filling for tortillas, one or more of my kids will eat it with rice. I tell ya, the rice force is strong in this house. Anyway, I needed a recipe that would use the leftover tortillas before they spoiled (hardened) and that’s when I remembered a video from Facebook about making tortilla s’mores.
The tortilla s’more video on Facebook was more like a wrap that was pan fried in butter and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. It looked so good, but I also had two overripe bananas, a jar of Nutella, and peanut butter that was screaming to be used. And since all of these things are a great marriage in a sandwich, I figured it would be great thrown into a neatly wrapped burrito too!

Nutella Peanut Butter Banana S’more Burritos
Okay, first things first. Don’t over think this. Just add in what you think looks good. Measurements don’t have to be exact and items can be substituted or omitted to fit what you have on hand. For example, don’t have Nutella, use mini chocolate chips. Don’t like peanut butter, leave it out. You get the picture, so let’s proceed.
On the lower third of the tortilla, add marshmallows, Nutella, peanut butter, crumbled graham, sliced overripe bananas, more Nutella/peanut butter, and mini marshmallows.
Tip: Place the mini marshmallows so that they end on the outside of the s’more burrito. This ensure it will get heat from the pan to melt and get gooey.
Tip: If the tortillas are brittle, warm per package directions.
Bring the left and right side of the tortillas in and begin rolling it closed to form a burrito.
Next, melt about 3 T. of butter in a small microwavable bowl (this is enough for 4 -5 s’more burritos). Dip a pasty brush into the melted butter and swipe it across the bottom of a pan over medium low heat. When the the pan and butter are heated, add the s’more burritos, seam side down into the pan. Brush butter all over the outside of the s’more burritos. Turn the s’more burrito when it turns a golden brown. Keep rotating and turning the burrito until all sides are golden brown, about 5-6 minutes total.
Tip: Do not walk away, as the tortillas can quickly burn.
Let cool slightly, serve, and enjoy!
FYI – If you can’t eat all of the burritos, you can keep them in the fridge for up to 2 days and just reheat in a toaster oven/oven on 300°F until warmed through. It will crisp right up again!
