  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying, or as needed
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon sugar, or as needed
  • 1/2 cup sliced green grapes, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh strawberries, or to taste


  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat cream cheese, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and ground cinnamon together in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Cut 3-inch circles out of each tortilla using a round cookie cutter. Fold tortilla rounds into a taco-shell shape.
  4. Hold folded tortilla with tongs and cook in the preheated oil until the taco shape holds and tortilla is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer cooked tortilla to a paper-towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining tortilla rounds.
  5. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over cooked tortilla rounds. Spread cream cheese mixture into each shell, top with grapes and strawberries.
