Sweet or Savory?

Let’s be real, all nachos are wonderfully amazing but do you prefer savory nachos or sweet nachos?

When the weather’s nice, there’s nothing I love more than drinking a cold beer and munching on a big plate of nachos piled high with various salsas, cheeses, pulled meat, veggies, and more

I recently learned of dessert nachos and couldn’t believe I had never had them before! I have the biggest sweet tooth and all aboard for a sugary take on an old favorite.

These strawberry dessert nachos are meant to be made with ingredients you probably already have in your panty, and prepared in the simplest way possible. For an authentic fried Mexican dessert check out this homemade sopapillas recipe!

Top the cinnamon chips with any of your favorite fruits, dips, nuts, and spreads to enjoy a tasty creation of your own. And don’t forget the homemade whipped cream!

How to: Make cinnamon chips

Have you ever used soft tortillas to make chips? When I realized this little trick it was so funny to me how simple this was and how I never thought of it!

Using fajita-sized flour tortillas, cut into various triangle shapes.

Add to a gallon baggie and pour melted butter over them. Shake vigorously to ensure each triangle gets coated. 

You can also use a basting brush and to brush butter over whole tortillas, and then slice. I just find the baggie version easiest even though it may not be perfect!

There may be a few pieces that stick together. After shaking a little, separate the stuck together pieces and continue shaking. 

Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Then pour into the baggie and shake until dispersed. The triangles should be covered in delicious cinnamon sugar!

Bake at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes. Flip and continue cooking for 4 min. Let cool completely on a wire rack. 

Don’t fret if the chips feel soft, they will get more crispy as they cool!

How to: assemble strawberry dessert nachos

Once the crispy cinnamon chips have cooled, place on a large plate or serving platter.

Chop strawberries into bite-sized pieces and sprinkle over the chips. 

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continue microwaving at 15 second intervals until melted, stirring after each one. A spoonful of coconut oil can be added before melting for a glossier, smoother chocolate drip, but isn’t necessary.

Pour melted chocolate over the strawberry nachos. Top with spray whipped cream as desired and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Enjoy immediately!

  6. I’ve just pinned this for later because it is definitely something I need to try soon! It sounds incredible!

That just makes the whole kit and caboodle absolutely divine! I can’t wait to test it out!
