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.
