I made these last night. They were SO good. A friend gave me the recipe, so I do not know the origninal source. She mentioned Cooking Light, but I did not find it on their site. Anyway, they were very good, and can be made in stages, and made ahead (not assembled). Hope you enjoy!

Also fun with presentation...I "tented" the tortilla's, then added a scoop of the sour cream, scattered the strawberries and then added the chocolate chips. Looked really professional. I am sure you can make your own chocolate sauce and drizzle for added effect.


Strawberry Dessert Nachos

3 cups sliced strawberries
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 c. amaretto
1/2 c. fat-free sour cream
1/2 c. frozen reduced calorie whipped topping, thawed (I don't use this because I don't like it and never have it on hand, I just double the sour cream and sugar)
2 T sugar (I use the crunchy turbinado sugar for this part)
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
6 flour tortillas
2 t. cinnamon sugar (I just make my own)
2 T sliced almonds, roasted (I skipped these but would be good)
2 t. shaved semisweet chocolate (I used choc chips)

Combine first 3 ingredients and chill 1/2 hr. Combine sour cream, whipped topping, 2 T sugar and cinnamon. Cover and chill. Preheat oven to 400. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. Arrange on 2 baking sheets, spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 400 for 7 min. or til lightly browned. Cool.

Place 8 tortilla wedges on dessert plate; top with strawberries and sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with almonds and chocolate.
