Give your nachos a lift and try these Sweet Dessert Nachos! Cinnamon sugar “baked” tortilla chips, homemade chocolate sauce and fresh fruits make this one of a kind dessert!
Today let’s talk about nachos friends but not just regular cheese loaded nachos, though let me be honest I love them to death. Our movie nights always always involve nachos – for me loads of cheese topped on crispy tortilla chips & pickled jalapenos! But a girl needs her dessert and for me that means after dinner unless I eat dessert, I don’t feel full. Do you face the same problem?! So one day when I had nothing to eat for dessert, I made these dessert nachos and since then they have been my favorite!
I switch fruits based on season and my favorite is mango or banana-strawberry combo. And I bake my tortilla chips instead of frying and that gives me the freedom to eat a lot more! So making these is really simple – all you need to do is butter your tortillas, cut them in triangles, place on a baking sheet and generously sprinkle cinnamon sugar all over them. Then once baked and crispy, you place them on a plate, drizzle them with your homemade chocolate sauce ( you can totally use store bought chocolate sauce or even nutella will taste great here) and loads and loads of fruit. I would also suggest you serve them with some chilled whipped cream. Divine!
So it’s not too late, you can still do after dinner dessert or if you are like me dessert for dinner!
