Last fall, Travis and I made a trip to Coors Field to watch the Rockies play. While planning our trip, Travis read about these apple pie nachos. Sounds a bit funny but the first thing we bought when we got to the field was apple pie nachos. They were close to $10 but so worth it! We ate them at both games and haven't had them since.
Last week with the return of baseball, I tried my own hand at making them. They turned out pretty good, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not anxious to go back and eat them at Coors Field.
When I shared the picture last week on Instagram, I got several requests for the recipe.
FOR THE CINNAMON SUGAR CHIPS
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 tablespoon cinnamon
-2 tablespoons melted butter
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
3) Brush both sides of each tortilla with melted butter. Rub the cinnamon-sugar mixture onto both sides of each tortilla. Cut tortillas into wedges and place on ungreased baking sheet.
4) Bake for 14-16 minutes until brown and crisp. Cool on a wire rack.
FOR THE APPLE PIE FILLING
-4 medium Granny Smith apples, cut
-2 teaspoons lemon juice
-1 cup brown sugar
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
-1 tablespoon cornstarch
-2 teaspoons vanilla
1) In a large sauté pan, combine apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2) Stir inn cornstarch.
3) Cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally.
4) Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
DISH IT UP!
Put a layer of chips, top with apple pie filling, cheddar cheese, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and drizzle with caramel sauce.
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE:
-I think you could easily use canned apple pie filling. Just warm it up and you'd be good to go.
-The ice cream was an added bonus but delicious, so why leave it off?!
-Don't leave off the cheese. It sounds crazy, but it tastes good!
I hope you enjoy this as much as of family does!
