This recipe has been paid for by Pink Lady® Apples South Africa. I have been wanting to make sweet nachos for a while now ever since my favourite foodie saw sweet nachos appearing on quite a few menus while on a trip to Australia. And with Pink Lady® apple season in full swing, the timing is can’t be better for these Sweet Nachos with Caramelised Pink Lady® Apples. Tortilla chips coated in butter and sugar, baked until crispy, topped with Pink Lady® apples caramelised in butter, sugar and brandy, dolloped with a zesty scoop of lime yoghurt. I think it is a pretty delicious idea and a lovely sharing dessert. That is, of course, if you even want to share.

The Pink Lady® apples hold their shape beautifully when cooked and their natural sweetness a good match with the crunchy tortilla chips. Making the tortilla chips could not be easier. Slice the tortillas into triangles, place in a large bowl and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle the brown sugar all over it, get your hands in there and toss until coated. Pop on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake until golden brown. The rich, sweet tortilla chips will crisp up as it cools down.

The dessert is at it’s best when the apples are still warm so get the tortilla chips done first so they can cool and crisp while you caramelize the apples. It is an indulgent dessert with loads of texture. Crispy and crunchy sweet nachos and with soft, warm buttery apples and a hit of creamy and zesty yoghurt. I think it is a lovely way of serving a sharable dessert in the middle of the dinner table. The yoghurt does not need to be sweetened – there’s enough sugar already!
