Recipe adapted from The Peach Kitchen
Last year I must have been craving pumpkin, because that was the base for most of my fall desserts. This seems to definitely be the year of the apple! I still have one more apple dessert to share with you all after this one, but don’t worry, I have a pumpkin recipe I’ll post soon as well (I better get busy)!
I made this dip for a jewelry party I attended last week and then brought the leftovers into work. I love almost any kind of dip, and I’ve been wanting to try making my own cinnamon tortilla chips for a while now so I was very excited to try this recipe! I decided to double it, which is reflected in my version below. If you’re making it for a smaller crowd then just cut the ingredients in half. This was a little more time consuming than I was expecting. Peeling, coring and cutting the apples is kind of a pain, but worth it in the end. The tortilla chips also took a little longer than I expected, mainly because I had to keep reusing my pans and waiting for the chips to cool a bit in between. The end results were definitely delicious, and I had several people mention making this for a Thanksgiving appetizer. Enjoy!
Apple Pie Dip with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
10 medium whole wheat flour tortillas
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
4 ½ Tbsp sugar
4 medium apples; peeled, cored and chopped
4 Tbsp lemon juice
6 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp sugar
3 Tbsp flour
To make the chips, preheat the oven to 410 degrees. Brush the melted butter on a tortilla, then sprinkle with some of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Use a pizza cutter to cut into “chips”. Repeat with all of the tortillas. Place in a single layer on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 5-8 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown (I used two different cookie sheets and put them each in the oven twice). Let cool before serving.
To make the dip, place the apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and sugar in a medium sized pan. Mix together and heat on medium high heat until boiling. Add the flour and continue heating until mixture has thickened slightly. Serve either warm or cold with tortilla chips.
