Fridays are called 'Fun Food Fridays' at our house. Ever since I was a child, it has been something my mom did for us kids and now it is something we continue for mine. During the week we always had a sit down dinner, complete with my sisters and I setting the table for when my dad got home from work. Weekdays consisted of a regular traditional dinner....meatloaf, chicken, pork chops, etc with two sides and always a bread. Fridays were creative days or days when we got to have homemade pizza, Asian food, hoagies, brats, etc...
Today, we had chicken sandwiches with fries and I made dessert nachos.
You will need:
Cut your flour tortillas into triangles. I only had the large burrito style tortillas, so they ended up being too big. I cut a half an inch from the top of each to make them a more managable size. I would recommend using the soft taco size.
In large pot, begin heating vegetable oil on medium. Once it gets hot enough, lower the heat to 'medium/low' as the tortillas will cook fast.
In a mixing bowl mix in one tablespoon of cinnamon for every cup of sugar. You can also lower the amount depending on how much you are making. Mix the cinnamon and sugar well.
Drop your triangles in your oil and they will start to fry immediately. Make sure to turn quickly until both sides are a nice golden brown.
**You can also bake your tortillas at 350 degrees, sprinkling with cinnamon sugar before putting into the oven.**
As soon as the triangles come out of the oil, immediately put them in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Toss them to coat. Shake off excess sugar.
For the strawberry salsa, chop your strawberries and add them to a bowl. Add one tsp of fresh lemon juice, 1 tsp of sugar and 1/2 tsp of chopped mint. Mix well.
Serve your dessert chips with a scoop of whipped cream (or ice cream) and top with your strawberry salsa. I added a dollop of nutella to mine.
