Do the terms ‘breakfast,’ ‘lunch,’ and ‘dinner’ mean anything to you? I guess what I’m asking is, are you a strict eggs-for-breakfast, sandwich-for-lunch, hot-food-for-dinner kind of person? Or, do you occasionally (frequently?) find yourself eating pizza at 9 a.m., half of an old granola bar around noon, and cereal after a long and hectic day? I tend to stick to the rules when it comes to these things, but I’m a huge fan of breakfast-for-dinner (especially when it includes a delicious Summer Vegetable Frittata). And, thanks to these Apple Cinnamon Nachos, I’m becoming way more fond of eating delicious snacks for lunch.
This recipe for Apple Cinnamon Nachos isn’t really a recipe. It’s more like a bunch of sliced apples, hefty drizzles of homemade Honey Sea Salt Peanut Butter and raw local honey, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a handful of crunchy Honey Cinnamon Granola, and whatever other toppings you enjoy on your apple cinnamon nachos (dark chocolate, anyone?).
Thanks to the orchards on Mount Graham that the owners of Sleeping Frog Farms tend to, Tucson CSA members have been receiving a lot of apples in our weekly shares. These aren’t just any apples–they’re juicy, slightly tart, crisp, sweet apples. And, they’re perfect. Although I’m almost positive I’ve eaten an apple a day for the past few weeks (my doctor should be proud), I’ve still managed to accumulate an entire vegetable drawer’s worth of the autumn jewels. Enter, Apple Cinnamon Nachos.
Apple Cinnamon Nachos are the best way to use up a bunch of apples at once (that is, if you don’t want to make an Apple Cinnamon Pie). They also happen to be great for kids, parties, meetings, and, as I mentioned earlier, lunch.
