Cinnamon Dessert Nachos

Cinnamon Dessert Nachos

Need vs. Want.

Sometimes I have a hard time differentiating 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.

In case 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

Cinnamon Dessert Nachos

  • 10 small (6″) flour tortillas, cut into 1/4′s
  • 2-3 tablespoons cinnamon-sugar
  • oil for frying (I used canola)
  • 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


  1. Heat approximately 1/2 cup oil in a large fry pan.
  2. Dice up fruit while oil is heating.
  3. 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).
  4. Place chips into a large bowl and sprinkle immediately with cinnamon-sugar.
  5. Repeat with remaining tortillas. *Add additional oil if needed.
  6. Melt CANDIQUIK according to package directions. Dip each tortilla in chocolate coating and place on a large serving plate.
  7. Top tortilla chips with fresh fruit and drizzle with additional chocolate coating if your feeling fancy.

Tip: serve with cinnamon ice cream or whipped cream for an extra delicious treat!
