  • 2 (6 inch) whole wheat flour tortillas
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 medium apples or pears, cored and sliced
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins, dark raisins, or dried currants
  • ½ teaspoon finely shredded orange peel


  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat both sides of tortillas with cooking spray. In a small bowl, stir together granulated sugar and apple pie spice; sprinkle onto tortillas. Cut each tortilla into 6 wedges; place wedges on prepared baking sheet or in muffin cups. Bake wedges for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet combine apples, water, brown sugar, raisins and orange peel; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 5 minutes or until apples are just tender. Uncover and simmer for 5 minutes more or until desired consistency.
  3. Serve warm apple mixture with tortilla wedges.
  • Tip: For a light and crisp tortilla chip, be sure to use regular whole wheat flour tortillas rather than the low-carb variety.
