Crunchy Apple Nachos

Apple nachos are apple slices topped with sweet fixings, frozen, and served nacho-style! These spiralized apple slices are topped with melted vegan chocolate, nut butter, crushed walnuts, and shredded coconut for maximum flavor and texture in every bite. 

Crunchy Apple Nachos

Fall is around the corner (my personal favorite time of year, not only for the crisp and cozy weather, but the produce!) and that means bring on the apples! If you receive a bunch of apples in your CSA box, or go apple picking, you’re probably wondering, “What else can I do with these apples?”

Crunchy Apple Nachos

If you like chocolate covered fruit or ‘fruit and nut’ style chocolate bars, you’ll love these Crunchy Apple Nachos, made with spiralized apples. Instead of using a mandolin, you can use your Inspiralizer to slice the apples into chip slices. Then, we layer the apple slices and top with the fixings!

You can customize the nachos to your flavor preference, but I recommend keeping the chocolate, it adds a nice sweetness and, well, who doesn’t love chocolate?!

Crunchy Apple Nachos

Other topping suggestions include caramel (hello caramel covered apples!), crushed almonds or pecans instead of walnuts, sunflower butter, and finely chopped pretzels for an extra salty kick.

Enjoy those soon-to-arrive apples in abundance and make these Crunchy Apple Nachos for dessert or a sweet afternoon snack!

I don't understand the first step. "Slice the apples halfway through, careful not to pierce through the center." Which way am I slicing? Vertically? Horizontally? Is there a video?
Meaghan says:
Hi Kelly! For this recipe we're using the Inspiralizer to make apple chips. We do have a video about how to make chips with your Inspiralizer that you might find helpful. Let us know if this doesn't clear things up!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezCtPLD6TVE
Marina says:
Does freezing keep the apples from turning brown?
Meaghan says:
Hi Marina! Freezing alone will not prevent browning. We did find this information for you: "once sliced, dip your apples in a bowl of water with a little lemon juice stirred in (about a tablespoon per gallon) to prevent browning."
Catherine says:
Freezing just made the apples mushy. Does it matter type of apples?
Meaghan says:
Hi, Catherine! Oh no! It should not make a difference, no! Perhaps the apples were overripe?

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
