Apple Pie Dip & Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips

Apple Pie Dip & Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips |

It looks like a gloomy Fall morning this morning, except…..

….there is no Fall here…

so this is just another gloomy morning that needs cheering up.

Do apples cheer you up?


Of course not. Apple doesn’t cheer me up either.

But chips and dip does!

But we are on a health kick, remember?

So instead of the usual nachos and cheese, I made apple dip and wheat tortilla chips.

It’s healthy, it’s delicious and it makes your kitchen smell wonderful..

Oh, and it’s easy too!

This morning is made for snuggling in bed.

But I  told myself, I’d wake up early to make this.

I know you’d be visiting and I’m so glad you’re here…


I love how versatile this Apple Pie Dip can be.

You can use this as pie filling or ice cream topping or yogurt topping.

    Delicious, who can say no this lovely apple dip, that sweety munchies looks perfect combo. Thanks for sharing with Hearth and soul blog hop. I will be putting it in Hearth and soul blog face book page

    This made me surprised! When I saw the picture at foodgawker, I thought it was a kind of filling soup with grains in it. Reading the post, I understand I was wrong. I came across with something even better! Never thought of pairing tortilla chips with apple dip, great idea! This absolutely would cheer me up!

  3. says

    I love this recipe! I was just telling my hubby I want to make a fun apple dip, and then I find your blog post! I think it sounds so lovely, and would be a great compliment to some creamy Greek yogurt, YUM! Take care, Terra

      The tortillas won’t get crispy if you brushed them with too much butter. Just a little butter will do, just enough for the  sugar and the cinnamon to stick to it.

      Thanks for dropping by…

    This looks so good! I think this would be a wonderful appetizer for any fall gathering. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe with the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  5. Christi says

    I’m wanting to make this for a church ladies’ bunco night.  Approximately how many would this serve?  Sounds delicious!

      Hi Christi, Thanks for dropping by and this is delicious! If you are serving this as appetizer, this would serve 8-10 persons but if it’s like a snack, this is good for 6-8 persons only.

  6. lindsay b says

    Hi!  Thanks for this great recipe.  I am a tupperware consultant and this recipe helps me demonstrate our chopper and microwave containers.  Also it’s super yummy :)

  7. Mrspeacock22 says

    I made this for my 3 year-old daughter’s preschool class and the kids loved it.  I made the adjustment of mixing & heating melted butter, brown sugar and cornstarch together.  I wanted it to be a bit stickier so the kids could dip it easier.  Worked like a charm and still tasted fantastic.  Thanks for this!

  8. Jennifer Martin says

    I made this today so it would be ready for New Years Day.  It looks like I’ll have to make another double batch since we can’t stop eating it. 

  9. Julie Ritland says

    Just found this on Pinterest and made it.  YUM!!!  I was making it to take to my nutrition class, but it looks like I’m going to have to make another batch.  Thanks for a great recipe.

  10. Jacqui132 says

    Just made these tonight for company tomorrow.  The kids went crazy for it and were stealing the chips (I used tortillas because I didn’t have pita bread).  My DH said “Oh Wow!” when he tasted it all.  That’s high praise!  Thank so much for posting the recipe.  I’m sure our company will love it!

  11. Susan says

    Great recipe – big hit at the party we made it for.  For the benefit of others – I think the issue with chips that didn’t get crispy is possibly that they weren’t paying attention to 210 degrees celsius =  375 degrees fahrenheit.  My husband figured this out when ours weren’t getting brown (I had set the oven to 210 degrees fahrenheit).  ooops – I need to pay more attention to the recipes. :o)  Also – we used granny smith apples so I added a couple extra tablespoons of brown sugar to make the dip a little sweeter – other types of apples probably don’t require this.

  12. Kimsue1212 says

    Hi Peach,
      I just saw this on Pinterest and to tell you the truth, I repinded because of the dish. I LOVE Apples!! Where did you get it?

  13. Lyn says

    Just finished making it with a need to go apple-( I halved the recipe and it make plenty!)
     3 out of 3 Teenagers loved it ( so did I ! ) It’s a keeper !!

  14. Marisa says

    I just made this and it is delicious! But the celcius temperature threw me off at first- Couldn’t figure out why the chips weren’t done! Hahahaa

  15. Amy says

    Oh My! I just made this for a party tonight and I already wish I had doubled the batch because I’m going to be the one standing around the table eating it all…

  16. Danielle says

    Just a hint…u bake the tortillas at 410 Fahrenheit 210 Celsius…I was baking them at 210 Fahrenheit and was wondering why it was taking so long…then I read it again and realized it was in Celsius. Can’t wait to try these tonight!

  17. Cheryl says

    Finally tried this after finding it on Pinterest a few weeks ago. DELICIOUS!! My apple peeler/corer/slicer from Pampered Chef made the process very fast and easy. I tripled the recipe and I’m so glad I did! This one’s a keeper.

  18. says

    I am guessing I am not the first one to tell you this, with 70 + comments, but this is such a great recipe- Loved it!!  I just had to share!

  19. Heidi says

    I saw that you said this dip can be made the night before, which would really help me a lot. I know it can be served cold, but have you tried reheating it in the microwave? Just want to make sure it wouldn’t get too runny. Also, can the tortilla chips be kept overnight in a ziplock? Again, any soggy issues? I’m excited to give this a try!

    • peachkins says

       Hi Heidi,

      Yes, you can make the dip the night before and re-heat it in the microwave. However, I’m not so sure if the chips can survive in the ziplock and not get soggy. I guess you should make sure it has totally cooled before putting inside a ziplock. Thanks for dropping by.

      • Alm011688 says

        I haven’t made the apple dip yet but I have made baked cinnamon chips many, many times and they’ve never gotten soggy on me  – I’ll make a big batch to last us the week and they stay fine in a ziplock bag. 

  20. Wendy says

    I always have a list of recipes I make during the fall apple-picking season. You know, the typical apple crumble & apple pies. But this is definitely making the list!  Besides multiplying the recipe by a million, it’s soo awesome!   You don’t have to go out and buy anything special, everything is already in your cupboard! I just used margarine since I didn’t have butter, and I didn’t see any big difference.  I found this recipe via Pinterest.  
    My only critique is that my apple “sauce” wasn’t as saucy as I thought it would be… maybe more liquidness would make it better!  And to cut the apple pieces really small, as it’s not specified in the recipe ! This would be such a great appetizer .. I can picture the apple sauce in little dishes surrounded by the tortilla chips. Yummy. 

  21. S9dean says

    i was wanting to make this and give it to my sons teachers would it be good reheated and would it need to be put in the fridge?

  22. Alm011688 says

    This looks like the perfect thing to add to my baked cinnamon chips!  I usually just serve them plain and people gobble them up and I’ve thought about making a dip but I’m not a huge fan of cream cheese dips (they are okay on occasion) so apple pie did sounds lovely!  *also, I spread butter on my tortillas, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar, and THEN cut them so that would save you time instead of spreading butter and sprinkling cinnamon sugar on them individually.

  23. Lindsay says

    I found this recipe on Pinterest a few weeks ago, and now after first making it, I’m wondering why it took me so long! This is such a delicious snack/dessert. Thank you!

    • Jennie Kuhns says

      I made this as the recipe indicates, but then put it in a mini-crockpot to keep warm when it was served. Also, I cheated and used Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips and Lorna Doone shortbread cookies as dippers instead of making the chips. So good! Making it for Thanksgiving, too!

  24. AlexCapone says

    What kind of apples do you useand can you “dice” them in a food processor? I’m planning to make this for thanksgiving and cutting the tortillas with a leaf cookie cutter

    • peachkins says

       I used fuji apples but I think you can use pretty much any kind of apple… I think cutting the tortillas with a leaf cookie cutter would make it much prettier! Thanks for dropping by…

  25. Peggy says

    I found your recipe via Pintererst. I made this for my kids today for an after school snack. They loved it!
    Thanks for sharing!

  26. Barbara White Frasch says

    OMG!  These are better than Stacy’s chips.  I played around with it some.  brushed both sides with a combination of melted butter and garlic powder and baked, turning over once until they were crisp.  Sooooo good!  Thanks

  27. Bethanykendrick82 says

    This is delicious! I have made numerous times for several parties, it’s always a hit. If you’re running short on time, serve with cinnamon graham crackers. Approximately how many calories per serving?

  28. Christy335 says

    Just made this dip. AH-mazing. I used cinnamon and sugar pita chips to dip in it. SO easy to make. Thank you!! 

  29. Barb says

    I was is a rush and used a can of apple pie filling.  Chopped it up with my veggie chopper.  Worked fine, company loved it!

    • Grace Gaige says

      Did you cook the apple pie filling with the other ingredient? I am wanting to use the apple pie filling.

  30. Jennie Kuhns says

    Not sure if I posted before, so here goes. This is ah-mazing! I prepare it as you indicate, and then put it in a mini crock-pot so it’s nice and warm. Instead of making the tortillas, I go the lazy route and use Stacy’s cinnamon sugar chips, as Christy335 said earlier! A little ice cream doesn’t make it bad, either! Thanks for sharing!

  31. Brandi says

    I am wondering if you can put the apple dip in a small mason jar, decorate, and give as gift? OR does it need to be refrigerated?

  32. Nichole says

    I made this a while ago, delicious! I am wondering if this would work as an actual apple pie filling. Just put a crust in a dish, throw this in it and bake until the crust is cooked? I know it’s not traditional, but it was super easy and yummy!

  33. says

    Thank you for this delicious recipe! I love your blog and recipes. I adapted this one for breakfast, too. Just top the apples with granola instead of using chips, and it is delicious!
