  Apple Pie Nachos

Homemade apple pie nachos with cinnamon chips are an ooey, gooey plate of deliciousness.

You could serve these individually or on a big tray. Forego the utensils, nachos are meant to be eaten with your hands where you get all sticky and sloppy.

It all started with Peach Cobbler Nachos when I realized I didn’t have all the ingredients to make the pastry. That mistake turned into a new family favorite. I love mistakes.😉

 

Homemade Apple Pie Nachos with Cinnamon Chips

For the chips

For the chips, you’ll want to start them first. First, cut flour tortillas into chips. Next, coat them in oil then cinnamon and sugar. Bake them until all the moisture is gone and they’re crisp. This is your base for the nachos.

I chose to make my chips with flour tortillas because they’re sturdy and will hold the apples. You can make chips from pie crust. However, they tend to break with much weight. Therefore, I don’t recommend them for this recipe. Alternately, you could use graham crackers, animal crackers, sugar cookies, or another sweet cracker or cookie. Finally, you could use cinnamon sugar pita chips (found here).

For the topping

For the topping, you have some options. You can use fresh, canned, or frozen apples. Basically, you’re going to flavor the apples then cook them until they’re soft.

Another quick option, you can use apple pie filling. I recommend tasting the filling and adjusting the spices if needed. Next, simply warm it and spoon it onto your chips.

Dress it up

Drizzle with white chocolate, caramel sauce or marshmallow fluff (Did you know they make marshmallow fluff as an ice cream topper now? It’s with the ice cream toppings in the store.) over the top. You can also top it with chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds. OR… chopped Snickers or Heath candy bars would be amazing!!!

Here’s my homemade caramel sauce recipe or my Pecan Pie Caramel Sauce if you prefer homemade.

Of course, what’s apple pie without ice cream or whipped cream? Splurge and get a really good vanilla ice cream or make homemade whipped cream. You’ll thank me later.

Time-Saving Tips

  1. You can make the chips and store in an airtight container up to two days before you need to use them.
  2. Oil in a spray bottle (like this) is easier and quicker than brushing the chips with oil. If you can’t find the spray in the store, you can get a dispenser like this to fill.

Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary based on products used. Caramel, whipped cream, and ice cream were not included in the nutritional information.
