Expert Tips
  • Prep the homemade cinnamon tortilla chips ahead of time then have your guests assemble their own Dessert Nachos buffet style so everyone can have the exact toppings they like
  • Tortilla chips are done when they start to puff up. 
  • Instead of making your own cinnamon tortilla chips you can purchase Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips if you want to save time.
  • Another way to make the chips is to use prepared pie dough instead of tortillas.
