Apple Pie Nachos are a mouthwatering dessert that’s perfect for sharing! These dessert nachos feature crispy tortillas covered with apple pie filling and topped with whipped cream. Easy to make in just 20 minutes!
Who said nachos have to be savory? Dessert nachos are just so good, combining delicious cinnamon sugar flavors with apple pie flavors in this case!
If you have a bunch of fresh apples, this is a unique way to use them all up in minutes! The perfect way to celebrate fresh fall apples.
Here’s what you’ll need to make it:
- Flour tortillas: Use your favorite white or whole wheat tortillas in an 8-inch size if possible.
- Butter: Regular or unsalted
- Cinnamon Sugar: You can buy store-bought cinnamon sugar or mix ground cinnamon with granulated sugar.
- Apples: I recommend Granny Smith or other tart varieties such as Honeycrisps, Jonagolds or Crispins.
- Lemon: Fresh lemon juice for added flavor.
That’s the base and you can add chopped nuts, caramel sauce and whipped cream as toppings as you like.
How to Make Apple Pie Nachos
Start by cutting the tortillas into wedges (a pizza cutting wheel is handy if you have one). Then brush with melted butter and cinnamon sugar. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet at 400F for 3 minutes per side until crispy.
Next, make the filling. Here you’re coring and dicing the apples into smallish chunks (you don’t need to be exact). Toss with cinnamon sugar and lemon juice before sauteeing in a skillet with melted butter.
Last but not least, it’s time to assemble the nachos. Place the crispy tortilla pieces into a pile on a serving platter. Spoon the apple pie mixture over top and garnish with chopped nuts, caramel sauce and whipped cream!

I made these for the holiday potluck at work and they were a hit. I made a few tweaks to the apple topping. First i used a sweeter apple like honeycrisp or Fuji and cut down on the sugar (this was a recommendation from an Apple Hill baker) to about 2 tablespoons. I also used extra lemon juice. I added more cinnamon and a quarter tsp of cardamom. Then i sauteed them with 3 tablespoons of bourbon (everythings better with booze). Then remove the apples with a slotted spoon, reduce the juice, and mix it with the caramel sauce for a caramel apple flavor to the sauce. I warmed everything up and let everyone top their own to taste. Thank you for the recipe and video.
