My first-world problem/ plight of having too many whole-wheat tortillas persists (read about my participation in a high-fiber nutrition study). All but two 10-ct. bags have been used up and all for savory dishes, tofu scrambles, bean and veggie burritos, burrito bowls, and much more.
So I wanted to try something sweet.
I’ve seen different dessert nacho recipes pinned on Pinterest for quite a while. I thought I’d dip into that.
What I threw together was pretty good and super simple. This recipe makes enough for one, but you could easily double it.
It works well for dessert, but I’d also love to try it out on kids. I think they’d get a kick out of dessert nachos, and maybe even for breakfast…
1/2 or 1 whole-wheat tortilla
1 t cinnamon
1 t stevia or 2 t organic honey
1/4 cup plain yogurt (plain works, but non-dairy coconut is a little sweeter)
1 more t stevia
1/2 t pure almond or vanilla extract
1/4 cup fruit of choice
-If you haven’t already, slice your fruit and refrigerate to keep cool.
-To make the dip, mix the stevia and almond or vanilla extract into yogurt and blend thoroughly. You can use regular yogurt if you like, but I recommend plain since sugared varieties are, well, well-sugared. Return to refrigerator or freeze for about 40-50 minutes, churning occasionally, if you prefer more of a fro-yo consistency.
-To prep nachos, use a pizza cutter to cut your round tortilla into two halves. Cut each of those into three triangles. With each of your six triangles, cut a small triangle off the pointed end. With what’s remaining, you should be able to cut three more small triangles using a zigzag pattern.
-Next you’ll want to lightly spritz a broil-safe pan with cooking spray. If you’re using a cinnamon-stevia blend, go ahead and mix those together now, lightly coat the chips with cooking spray, press into blend and set on pan. If you’re opting for honey, which works a little better in my opinion, lay on pan, drizzle honey over chips, then sprinkle cinnamon atop.
-Broil for only a minute or so on that side. You’ll want to watch them carefully, and flip them quickly. If you’d like more sweetness, you can add more of either blend once you’ve flipped. Return to broiler and remove only once toasted. Let cool.
Then you’re ready to dip. Place your fruit on top of your dip and scoop up something sweet and good.
