For Nachos:

Chopping Arctic apples for sweet salsa recipe


Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray two baking sheets with canola spray. Stack tortillas on a cutting board 5 at a time and cut stacks in half with a large kitchen knife. Continue to cut each half-stack into thirds so you end up with 60 chips.


Place cut tortillas in a single layer on baking sheets. Spray with canola oil. Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over chips. Bake until golden and crisp, about ten minutes.


To assemble nachos, fan chips out on a circular platter. Distribute apple salsa throughout and place a dollop of vanilla yogurt in center to mimic traditional sour cream. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, if using, for those who appreciate a similar treatment on their apple pie.
