I love these apple pie nachos!! They remind me of apple pie but much easier to make! These whiskey apples can literally be eaten on their own and they are delicious. I just add some sweetened up tortilla chips and some ice cream to take this dish over the edge.
Apple Pie Nachos
4 flour tortillas cut into triangles
1/2 stick butter, melted
2 T granulated sugar
1/2 T cinnamon
Cinnamon whiskey apples, recipe below
vanilla ice cream
Directions: Make cinnamon whisky apples according to recipe below. Heat oven at 400°. Add tortillas to a large baking sheet. Brush the tortillas with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake in oven for 7-8 minutes, flipping half way through. Bake until the tortillas are crispy. Note: The tortillas will crisp up more once they sit outside the oven.
To assemble the nachos add tortilla chips to a plate and serve with warmed cinnamon whiskey apples and vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
Cinnamon Whiskey Apples
2 cup apples, peeled and diced
3/4 cup lite brown sugar
2 t cinnamon
1/2 stick butter
1 t xanthan gum (or 2 t white flour)
3 T cinnamon Whiskey, optional
Directions: Heat a medium sauté pan on medium high heat. Add in the butter and once almost melted add in the apples. Sauté about 5-6 minutes until start to become slightly tender. Add in the brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Next slowly pour in the cinnamon whiskey and mix together well. Let cook until a few minutes until it starts to bubble.
Add in the xanthan gum and cook about 3-4 minutes mixing often. The apple mixture will become thicker. The apples should look like they are in thicker sauce not in liquid. Once cooked use as so desired. Or let cool completely before storing in the refrigerator. Note: If you are storing these for later, make sure you heat the apples completely before use, that will thin out the sauce as it will thicken once cold.
