Dessert Nachos

I’m not sure how your family will react when you tell them you’re having nachos for dessert, but I bet they won’t be disappointed when they see these!

These are so easy to make and you can make them as healthy or sinful as you like! 

Top these with whatever goodies you already have in your kitchen. 

Since these only take about 15 minutes to make, maybe you don’t need to wait until after a meal to indulge…

My five year old had no complaints sharing this with me. I’m thinking I’ll have to make these for his birthday party in the summer. 

How to make the Chips:

This is really the only cooking involved. You can make these ahead of time and keep in an air tight container, or sealed baggie. 

You will need:

  • 3 flour tortillas — Use as many as you want, 3 will make 4-5 boats of nachos. You can also corn tortillas if you are gluten-free, or if you just want to. 
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil or butter, melted
  • Cinnamon and Sugar (1:3 ratio)

 Dessert Nachos

  1. Brush oil onto both sides of tortillas. 
  2. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar onto one side
  3. Cut into 6 slices– a pizza cutter worked well for this.

  4. Arrange strategically (don’t overlap) onto a cookie sheet.

  5. Bake 350 degrees for 12 minutes (if they are chewy bake longer). Corn tortillas will take a few minutes longer. 
  6. Let chips cool before topping–this makes them great for making ahead of time, but really it only takes about 5 minutes to cool.

Now for the fun part: Toppings!!

Just some suggestions, use whatever you want.

  • Ice cream (duh!)
  • Yogurt (if you would rather be healthy) 
  • Honey
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Peaches
  • Kiwi
  • Cherries
  • …Okay really any fruit you can think of, or find in your kitchen
  • Sprinkles
  • Melted chocolate, drizzled on top
  • Cool Whip
  • Chocolate chips
  • Caramel topping
  • Nuts: peanuts, pecans, almond slivers, etc. 
  • Cookie crumbs

I think these would make the perfect dessert for a party! Especially for kids (or for those of us that are kids at heart 😉 )

Chocolate Nacho Chips

These came about by accident! 

After my son and I enjoyed these delicious nachos, I had left over chocolate. Honestly, there is no way I can throw chocolate away, so I had to do something with it (I had no choice, I was forced really). 

I grabbed some of the extra chips and spread the chocolate on top of them, added some sprinkles and let the chocolate harden.

You could use these as the base for the nachos, but honestly, these are like a whole other dessert by them-self! 

I think I might keep these in a container, and just grab one whenever I need some chocolate. 

Yummmm!!!

    Hi Linda - this is really clever!! I'm still on my Christmas gluten free gift hunt....you mentioned keeping the chocolate tortilla chips in a container. So they keep well? I have stored baked tortilla chips but not with chocolate on it. I was wondering if the chocolate would make it soggy? Thanks Linda!!

      Hi Nagi-- the chips don't get soggy after there is chocolate on them. However, they have never lasted too long at my house. If you don't eat them in a few days though they will taste stale. Thanks! --Anna
