Tips for Best Results
Use in-season berries from the farmer's market and your fruit nachos with cinnamon chips will stand out even more with over-the-top flavor. At the very least, you should make sure the berries you pick are fresh, firm, and ripe.
A pizza cutter is the easiest way to get perfect nacho triangles when you cut your own tortillas. You can cut it like traditional pizza slices or create large strips instead.
The tortilla chips may still feel a little soft when you take them out of the oven, but they will harden as they cool.
What are fruit nachos?
This delicious dessert nachos recipe is a combination of fresh fruit, homemade dessert tortilla chips, and whipped cream.
Can I save leftover fruit nachos?
As long as you haven't added the fruit to the chips yet, you can save the individual components of the dish and build more plates later. Place the homemade cinnamon chips in a plastic zipper baggy. Refrigerate the fruit and whipped cream in airtight containers. Bananas should be tossed in lemon juice to prevent browning.
If you have already combined everything together, the cinnamon chips are likely to get soggy. That doesn't mean you can't save the leftovers, just that your results may vary and will quickly become unappetizing.
