The key is to combine the crunch of nachos with a juicy apple filling.
We often get the question about what type of apples to use for a recipe like this. Granny Smiths are basically your ideal go-to apple for cooking because they retain a nice tart flavor and keep some texture after cooking. They are also widely available.
Other great choices include honeycrisps, jonagolds or crispins. Here is the recipe with our video tutorial showing each step of this delicious journey!
