What are dessert nachos?
They’re a type of dessert that features either sweetened tortilla chips or pita chips and then topped with a variety of dessert toppings, usually fruits and some kind of creamy mixture like cool whip or a cream cheese mixture.
Why are my berries soggy?
If you wash your berries when you bring them home rather than before you use them, they can get soggy or even go bad.
How do you slice strawberries?
Use a sharp knife to remove the crown, either by slicing the top off of the strawberry or cutting around the crown. Then, slice the strawberries in half. Finally, place the flat side of the half strawberry on the cutting board and slice it into even slices.

Mixed Berry Dessert Nachos
These dessert nachos are so scrumptious. Everyone loves when I serve these. It's got the crunch from the baked tortillas baked with cinnamon sugar. The fresh fruit makes this extra special. Add some whipped cream too!
- 5 flour tortillas
- 1/2 stick salted butter, melted
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon, see my favorite ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup each, mixed berries. I used strawberries, cut into small pieces, whole blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- whipped cream for topping, I used aerosol
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
Next, melt your butter. You can do so in the microwave or you can melt it in a small saucepan on the stovetop.
In another small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and cinnamon.
Brush the tortillas with the melted butter on one side, then sprinkle 1-2 Tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar on top of each. Shake off the extra.
Use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut the tortilla into 6 pieces. Put the tortilla chip pieces onto the lined baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes. They may still feel a little soft when you take them out of the oven, but they will harden as they cool.
Once the chips have cooled, arrange them onto plates. Add your mixed berries, almonds, and whipped cream. Serve and enjoy!
