Need vs. Want.
Sometimes I have a hard time decifering between the two. Pinterest doesn’t help.
Overall though, I’d like to say I’m fairly practical. I usually stick to what I need – like these nachos. I need.
You need these too.
Incase you need justification: Cinco De Mayo is right around the corner…
Speaking of, did you see what I stuffed my face with for Cinco De Mayo 2010 and 2011?
Now go make these.
Cinnamon Dessert Nachos
10 small (6″) flour tortillas, cut into 1/4′s
2-3 tablespoons cinnamon-sugar
oil (I used canola, for frying)
2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
1 1/2 cups diced pineapple (I used canned pineapple)
2 bananas, sliced
8 oz. (1/2 package) Chocolate CANDIQUIK Coating
Heat approximately 1/2 cup oil in a large fry pan.
Dice up fruit while oil is heating.
Add 4-5 tortillas to hot oil and fry until golden, use tongs to flip tortillas to brown each side (takes about 30 sec- 1 min).
Place chips into a large bowl and sprinkle immediately with cinnamon-sugar.
Repeat with remaining tortillas. *Add additional oil if needed.
Melt CANDIQUIK according to package directions. Dip each tortilla in chocolate coating and place on a large serving plate.
Top tortilla chips with fresh fruit and drizzle with additional chocolate coating if your feeling fancy.
Tip: serve with cinnamon-infused ice cream or whipped cream for an extra delicious treat!
Oh my gosh, cinnamon ice cream on top… what the heck – this would be beyond good.
