Strawberry Dessert Nachos

Mmm-hmm, I said dessert nachos. These have quickly become a family favorite (and a favorite for me to make, since they’re so quick)…once I finally made them.  It’s a recipe I first made back when I was a personal chef, a long, long time ago.

Strawberry Dessert Nachos

(serves 6)

  • 3 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or more, depending on how sweet your berries are)
  • 2 Tbsp almond or vanilla syrup (or amaretto if you’re making them for adults)
  • 6- 8” flour tortillas
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Butter cooking spray
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt (Greek or regular)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350 for the chips.

2. Mix the sliced berries with the 1/3 cup sugar and syrup and refrigerate for 30 minutes (or longer).

3. Cut the tortillas into 8 wedges each.  Stack and cut with a large knife for the easiest method.  Place on a baking sheet, spray with cooking spray, and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Bake at 350 for 8 minutes, until lightly browned and crisp.  Remove from oven and let cool.

4. Just before serving, place 8 chips in a starburst pattern on your plate and top with sliced strawberries.  Dollop a generous 2 Tbsp yogurt in the center, then drizzle with chocolate sauce.

Simple, aren’t they? I have seen cinnamon sugar tortilla chips at the grocery store, so you can use those instead and have very little “cooking” to do….just assemble and enjoy!

  3. Oh yummmm. And I just picked a ton of fresh strawberries today! I love those little red gems, but do get tired of the usual shortcakes, etc. These look wonderful, and quick too. Too bad you’re not home yet–I’d share.

    • Promises, promises. This is the third year we’ve missed out on strawberry picking…2011 we were moving, 2012 was a drought and no berries, and now we’re moving again! Of course, the last time we went, it took about 30 minutes to pick as many as we could use, and the kids acted like they were going to expire from the heat…and it was WA in June, so you know it was pretty cool out!

      • I suppose I should explain–the strawberries are from my garden! Just send the kids over. If they get too “exhausted” it’s a quick trip home to rest! LOL.
