If you are craving for a cherry cheesecake, you’re at the right place! These Cherry Cheesecake Chimichangas  are not the classic baked cheesecake that requires a lot of spare time and work.This is very quick recipe that wins for ease and simplicity. And the best part for this type of recipe is you could change it by using a different type of fruit for filling. Last time I used fresh strawberries and they were so good. Perhaps you remember my Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas. I had to try new version and this time I chose cherry pie filling instead fresh strawberries. Cherry Cheesecake Chimichangas turned out equally delicious.
