International Potluck

6 May

In honor of our international student population, the Vesalius Student Government hosted an international potluck after everyone returned from break. They had foods from everywhere from China, Turkey, Italy, the US, Mexico, and many other places. For me, I couldn’t think of anything more American than apple pie, but I didn’t want to make pie because I didn’t want to make the crust. So instead I made an apple pie dip that I found a couple years ago on Pinterest. For your enjoyment, read the recipe below or click this link!

 

Apple Pie Dip & Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips from “The Peach Kitchen”

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled, cored and diced apples
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon/calamansi juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tsp water

For the chips

  • 6 (6-inch) wheat tortillas
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar

Directions

  1. You can either cook this on the stove-top or the microwave.
  2. Combine all the dip ingredients in a small pan/ microwavable bowl except the cornstarch-water mixture.
  3. Heat for a few minutes until it’s boiling and has extracted juice from the apple.
  4. Add cornstarch-water mixture to the “sauce”.
  5. Put back in the microwave/stove top until boiling and the sauce has thickened.
  6. Set aside. You can serve this warm or chilled. It doesn’t matter. It will taste delicious.
  7. Cut tortillas into desired size. {wedges}
  8. Put in a slightly greased baking pan.
  9. Brush the tortillas with butter.
  10. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and bake at 210 degrees C {410 degrees F} until golden brown, about 5-8 minutes.
  11. Let them cool before serving and serve with the Apple Pie Dip.

My personal tips:

  • One batch of this doesn’t really make a lot. When I normally make it I tend to double or triple the recipe.
  • I put a little more cornstarch in because I think it makes a thicker sauce, which I like.
  • It can be served with things other than the cinnamon sugar chips. I have also served it with stroopwafels and regular waffles.
  • I’ve also never made the dip in the microwave, so I can’t say how that will turn out.
