Try this sweeter twist on chips and dip for the holidays: apple pie dip & cinnamon sugar tortilla chips! Basically, a deconstructed apple pie, with crispy chips instead of pie crust and a sweet, dippable filling. A lighter, healthier treat to serve as a holiday party appetizer, or a fun after-school snack!
Apple Pie Dip:
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup coconut sugar
4 granny smith apples, peeled & diced
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips:
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
cooking spray (or melted butter/coconut oil)
1/4 cup sugar, or sweetener of choice
5 whole wheat tortillas (burrito size, 10-inch)
To make Apple Pie Dip:
Add everything except vanilla extract to a saucepan over medium heat.
Cover and cook 30 minutes, until soft and fragrant.
Add vanilla, stir to integrate, and remove from heat.
Serve apple pie dip with cinnamon chips (see below) and enjoy!
Yields ~4 cups apple pie dip.
To make Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips:
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.
Cut tortillas into shapes with cookie cutter. (I was able to cut about 10 shapes out of each tortilla.)
Transfer shapes to a wire baking rack on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spray cut tortilla shapes with cooking spray and sprinkle on cinnamon sugar mixture.
Bake 10-12 minutes, until crisp.
Serve with apple pie dip and enjoy!
Yields 10 servings, or ~40-50 cinnamon sugar tortilla chips. (Will depend on size of tortilla & size of chips.)
