4 servings


  • 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


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
