Red, White, and Blue Dessert Nachos

Celebrate the Fourth of July with these sweet and easy nachos.

Change and its offspring, anticipation and uncertainty, are taunting our family this summer. With two grand-babies percolating, and our youngest son and his wife making a job-related transfer to NYC, we are treasuring every moment together, even more than usual.

But, when well thought out, I don’t really mind change. So, I’ve decided to break the homemade-ice cream tradition this Fourth of July. Instead, I’m serving these crispy, cinnamon-sugar-coated flour tortillas, slathered with Mascarpone cheese and topped with fresh fruit, then sprinkled with shredded white chocolate. The recipe is the result of an invitation from the California Strawberry Commission to create a festive dish using fresh strawberries. I’m so glad you asked me, Jodi.

Get the details and recipe on the California Strawberry Commission website.  While you’re there, treat your eyeballs and tastebuds to all the enticing strawberry recipes they have to offer. You’ll be amazed at the variety and creativity.

Oh, and by the way, while I’m over here and commenting. I wanted you to know I use your creamy balsamic and Greek yogurt dressing almost every day. I love it on a salad of arugula, black olives, bacon bits (sometimes) and Feta cheese. I also sometimes add red onions. I’m hooked!

These look delicious. A gal made some crisped tortillas like these and just served them with a fresh fruit salsa at a function I was at in the spring. We were all amazed that the tortilla chips were backed and not fried. This twist on things looks so good. I’d never used Mascarpone cheese either until a few months ago. I love your Al Capone analogy. I think that might be why I’ve steered clear before too. But I definitely think I’ll made these for my family on July 4th too. And I pinned the photo and the recipe on my Pinterest board too!
