Ingredients

24 Frescados Fajita-Style Flour Tortillas
3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 cups 35% whipping cream
1/4 cup icing sugar
1 tbsp finely grated orange zest
3/4 cup milk
3 eggs
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch salt
3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup icing sugar

Preperation

Blueberry Coulis: In heavy-bottom saucepan, combine blueberries and sugar over medium-high heat; bring to boil, stirring often. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves completely.

Whisk together water, lemon juice and cornstarch until smooth; stir into berry mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Let cool completely. Store in airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 2 days.

French Toast Batter: Whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and salt until blended; store in airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 2 days.

Orange Whipped Cream: Just before service, whip cream to stiff peaks. Stir in icing sugar and orange zest. Refrigerate to hold.

Assembly: For each serving, divide 1 tbsp (.5 oz) butter between 2 small nonstick pans set over medium heat; soak 2 tortillas in French toast batter for 5 minutes; shake off excess and pan-fry for 2 about minutes per side or until golden brown and set. Fold tortillas into quarters.

Plate crepes. Top with 1/4 cup (.8 oz) Orange Whipped Cream and 2 tbsp (1.6 oz) Blueberry Coulis. Dust with icing sugar.
