BEST APPLE PIE TACO RECIPE
- 4 large apples peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tbsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 batch cinnamon sugar (2 tablespoons ground cinnamon mixed with 4 tablespoons granulated sugar)
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 4 flour tortillas
- Salted caramel sauce for topping
- Whipped cream for topping
Add the apples, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, water, unsalted butter, and lemon juice to a large saucepan and toss everything well. Turn the heat to medium and stew the apples, stirring carefully, for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the apples are tender and easily speared with a fork. Set the mixture aside to cool.
Fill a small, shallow bowl with the cinnamon sugar mixture and set aside.
Add enough oil to a medium-sized skillet so it’s completely covering the bottom. Warm it over medium-high heat until it is shimmering and hot all the way through. Use tongs to place half of the tortilla in the oil and allow it to brown while keeping the second half out of the oil and folded over. This will only take 30 seconds to 1 minute. Once the piece in the oil is browned turn the tortilla to the other side and allow it to cook until golden brown and crispy.
Remove the taco to a plate covered with a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas. Once they are all cooked take each taco shell, one at a time, and place the outside in the cinnamon sugar mixture, until evenly coated.
Stand the taco shells upright in a tray and fill each one with the apple pie mixture. Top with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. Serve warm!
