A New Spin on Mexican... tortillas for dessert

As an Old El Paso Ambassador, I was given a fun challenge this month... "come up with a post that shows how I make Mexican my own".  So, today I am sharing a delicious and simple Mexican-inspired snack -- Cinnamon Tortillas Crisps.


Tacos make a great weeknight meal, but this week, we "took it up a notch" by adding a fun Mexican inspired dessert to Taco Tuesday.  These Cinnamon Sugar Tortillas Crisps (that my seven year old made all by himself) were a big hit with my boys.  Here's how easy they are to make:


1)  Cut fun shapes out of tortillas using cookie cutters.
2)  Place the tortillas on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
3)  Brush tortillas with melted butter.
4)  Sprinkle tortillas with cinnamon sugar (1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 tbsp cinnamon).
5)  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

I served my Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Crisps with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and bananas... but they are yummy plain too.  I think this is a fun and easy dessert to add to any Mexican meal, don't you?  How do you spice up your dinner table?

  1. Those look really good. We're planning on getting some apples this week, and I always have tortillas. I might try it with apples.
