Chocolate Covered Strawberry Nachos 


This is probably one of the most fun desserts I have had the pleasure in making and eating. The tortillas fry up quickly (even faster if you have an air fryer) and this dessert comes together very fast. One plate can feed several people. This dessert will definitely have you licking your fingers. 😉

Ingredients:

Flour tortillas (I fried 6)Strawberries, washed, dried and cut into bite size pieces 

Hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed

Nuts, chopped, optional

Whip cream, optional


Fry to a golden brown. 


Fry flour tortillas in oil heated to 350 degrees. Once crisp, remove from pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Drain and blot the tortillas. While still warm, sprinkle both sides with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Cut into wedges, I used my pizza cutter. Make a layer of cinnamon sugar chips and layer of strawberries. Drizzle warm chocolate sauce over chips and strawberries. I sprinkled mine with chopped nuts. Continue layering, with chips, strawberries, chocolate and nuts. Whip cream makes a great addition to this recipe. Enjoy!


Optional Air Fryer Directions:

Lightly mist tortillas with extra virgin olive oil, grape seed, coconut oil or (light oil). Crisp in air fryer and immediately sprinkle cinnamon sugar on both sides of crisp tortilla. Cut into wedges when cool enough to handle. Layer chips, strawberries, warmed chocolate sauce, nuts and whip cream. 


Cinnamon sugar 

1/2 cup sugar 

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

Reuben Nachos

I love nachos. I love Reubens too. It was only a matter of time before I created nachos from my favorite sandwich. This is a very fast and easy recipe to prepare. 


Ingredients:

Tortilla Chips

3 slices of deli sliced corned beef

8 ounces of sauerkraut, and squeezed dry, I used Silverfloss Bavarian Style

3 Tablespoons of Thousand Island dressing

5-6 ounces of Swiss cheese grated 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a large baking/pizza tray, spread tortilla chips out. Tear up pieces of corned beef and placebon top of tortilla chips. Drain 8 ounces of the sauerkraut and place on several paper towels. Squeeze out the liquid from the sauerkraut. You want it dry because you will be mixing thousand island in it and you don’t want soggy nachos!  Place sauerkraut in a bowl and mix in thousand island dressing. Place and spread out over the corned beef. Cover with Swiss cheese and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy. 


The secret to a good Reuben is dry sauerkraut. Whether its nachos, burgers or sandwiches. Also, if you are layering the chips, lay down on layer of chips, meat, sauerkraut thousand island mixture and cheese. Repeat this for every layer. You may need to adjust the amount of ingredients and cooking time for multiple layers of nachos. Serve and enjoy!
