Apple Pie Nachos Recipe

Ingredients:

Crispas

  • tortillas
  • tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • cups vegetable oil

Apple Pie Mix

  • baking apples, diced into 1/2 inch pieces 
  • teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • tablespoons brown sugar (light or dark)
  • ounce Amaretto

Toppings

  • cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped

Directions:

  1. 1
    Heat oil until it "speaks" when you sprinkle water into it. Cut each tortilla in half, then cut each half into 4 wedges.
  2. 2
    Mix cinnamon and sugar in a shallow dish with another paper towel lined dish right next to it.
  3. 3
    Put 2-4 tortilla wedges into the hot oil and cook until light brown on each side, flipping only once (this should take about 1 minute). Remove immediately from oil one by one and completely cover in cinnamon sugar mixture on both sides before placing on towel lined dish to cool and drain.
  4. 4
    When finished with crispas, toss together diced apples and lemon juice.
  5. 5
    Put apples, lemon juice and amaretto into a medium-sized skillet and cook over medium heat until apples just start to get tender and barely break down.
  6. 6
    Add brown sugar and stir well until evenly distributed. Remove pan from heat.
  7. 7
    Beat heavy whipping cream (works best in a chilled bowl) just until stiff.
  8. 8
    Gradually add sugar and vanilla and beat until stiff peaks form.
  9. 9
    On a plate or platter, set out each crispa individually. Top with a teaspoon or more of apple mixture, then a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

Meet Disgust from Pixar's Inside Out

Meet Disgust. She is to thank when you see #TransformationTuesday photos of your trusty old bowl cut.

Inside Out comes to US theatres in 3D on June 19, 2015. 

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind. 

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
