Strawberry & Chocolate Nachos

Strawberry Chocolate Dessert Nachos are the perfect easy, throw-together, family style dessert or special snack for two.  Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips are really easy to make using normal tortillas that are brushed with butter and cinnamon sugar and toasted in the oven!  The crispy chips are then topped with sweetened strawberries, melted chocolate and a little whipped cream for an easy, yet decadent dessert.

Strawberry & Chocolate Nachos

Baked Cinnamon-Sugar Chips topped with sweetened strawberries, melted chocolate and a little whipped cream for an easy, yet decadent dessert.


  • 1 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons sugar add more if you like your berries with a nice syrup
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips I prefer semi-sweet but use whatever you like
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 3 large flour tortillas
  • melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar mixed with heaping 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • cinnamon
  • Whipped cream


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet (or 2) with parchment or foil for easy clean up and set aside.
  • Place strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle with the 2 teaspoon sugar (or more if desired.) Set aside.
  • Brush tortillas with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.  Cut into wedges and place on lined baking sheet.  Bake chips for about 10 minutes or until the edges just turn golden brown.  Remove from oven and let cool.
  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small heat-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until melted and smooth.
  • To assemble, place cooled chips on a platter or large plate. Spoon strawberries over them, drizzle with chocolate and top with a few dallops of whipped cream.

How to make Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Cinnamon-Sugar chips are so easy to make.  You really don’t need measurements, but I’ve provided some in the recipe in case that’s helpful to you!  Simply brush flour tortillas with a little melted butter and then sprinkle cinnamon-sugar on top, cut them into wedges and bake them in the oven until golden and crisp.  It only takes about 10 minutes and they cool off fast!

How to Make Sweetened Strawberries

This isn’t rocket science, but many people don’t know the secret to a beautiful, flavorful fruit syrup is simply- sugar.  I add just enough sugar to these chopped strawberries to sweeten, but if you’d like more of a syrup, simply add a little extra sugar.

How to make Drizzling Chocolate

Another little secret, but this time for easy chocolate sauce that drizzles like a dream: fat.  I prefer coconut oil, but any neutral-flavored vegetable oil works great, or even shortening or butter.  Just a little bit melted in with your chocolate will keep it at a nice drizzling consistency.

Assembling your Strawberry Chocolate Nachos

Simply lay out your chips, spoon on your strawberries and drizzle with chocolate.

They are wonderful just like this, or if desired, you can add a little whipped cream.

This is such a fun treat that works great for throwing together on a big platter and letting everyone eat together, or putting together individual servings for a unique dessert.  As written this recipe serves 3-4 people.  Just multiply or eyeball to serve a crowed, the recipe is very flexible!

Questions & Reviews

  1. If I wanted to bring this to a party, I guess I would have to bring it all separate and assemble it there because the chips would get soggy from the strawberry juice, right? Just like regular nachos…my only complaint about nachos, my favorite food, is they don’t travel well. Any suggestions on the chocolate sauce travelling, if I make it with your recipe and keep it room temperature (keeping in mind it’s 90+ degrees here where I live) will it still be “drizzleable”. Maybe I could just make a platter of chopped strawberries and drizzled chocolate with the chips on the side?

  2. I think I’ll go to the store RIGHT NOW to get strawberries. And I’m in my pajamas still. That’s how good this looks! 🙂

  3. Holy moly, this is inspired! I’m making dessert for a dinner tomorrow – I am soooo bringing this!

  4. A boy just wandered by while I was looking at this…now I’m headed to the grocery store for strawberries!

  5. TGIFriday’s had a dessert like this for a limited time last year. The only differences were that theirs had mango and pineapple in addition to strawberries, and they drizzled it with chocolate AND caramel sauce. It was delicious! I will definitely be making this soon!

  6. Wow. You ARE a genius! But of course, you already were…even before this amazing creation! 😉 What could be better then chocolate and strawberries?!!? 🙂

  7. Actually? I truly think this IS a GENIUS recipe! Crunchy, sweet, fresh, chcolatey….Can’t WAIT to try this out! Thank you!!! 😀

  8. Ha ha! I have to admit, when I saw “strawberry & chocolate NACHOS” as the title for this post on my side-bar I was more than a little hesitant… I should’ve known the base would be the cinnamon-sugar chips!! LOVE those! Made them with the fruit salsa a couple years ago and have been meaning to make them again. This will be a good reason to. 🙂 YUM! Pretty sure this is now on the menu for my hubby’s birthday weekend.

  9. Oh yum! I am seriously going to get some strawberries. I was going to make a chocolate pie tonight for desert, but now I’ve changed my mind. Everything is better with strawberries, especially when you add chocolate.

  10. That looks sooooo good. I have to make some. I think I will try using Nutella drizzled over the top. Or, chocolate and Nutella. Wow!

  11. I have everything for this. Sweet! Making this for desert tonight. My husband will thank you. Now I just gotta find something for dinner! 🙂

  12. Wow. This looks divine! And SO simple! We have nachos for dinner ALL the time…how fun would this be for dessert on nacho night?? 😉 Thanks for sharing!

  13. Your blog is seriously my most favorite! Your recipes are always original and not filled with hard to fine ingredients or with lists of ingredients a mile long. THANK YOU! You are what I call a ‘real woman’s’ blog and I just love it! 🙂

    Cheers to a great weekend!

  14. This reminds me of fruit salsa with cinnamon chips which is fabulous. I can only imagine how good it is with chocolate and whipped cream on top!

  15. Did you ever have Chocolate Nachos at “Cheese Burger in Paradise”????
    They are awesome!! I’d may try your recipe and add ice cream like Cheese Burger does! These look very tasty! Thx!

  16. Um….YUM!!! Can’t wait to try these! Did you make the Cinnamon chips, or did you make them?

    1. i was wondering the same thing but then i clicked on the yellow wording of baked cinnamon chips in the beginning description and it takes you to the page where it shows how to make them looks easy enough to do I will be trying this recipe very soon looks YUMMY thanks for sharing

    2. Yep, like Lisa said, just click the link and you’ll go straight to the recipe. They’re super easy and super good!

  17. Until I read the description I was totally thinking Doritos Nacho Cheese flavour. Covered in strawberries and chocolate? I don’t think so. Your version sounds much better but the title is a bit off-putting. 🙂

  18. Holy cow that looks good… I’m reading this late at night, so tempting to make it right now….but will wait…until tomorrow. =)
