Fruity Nachos are a refreshing break from the traditional hearty flavors of beans, cheese, and jalapeno. Want a departure from the everyday nacho recipe? This very unusual, but delicious. You can use almost any firm fruit, alone or in combination.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet, then place a smaller baking sheet on top of them (this keeps them flat as they bake). Place the tortillas in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Then remove the smaller baking sheet and continue to bake the tortillas until they are crisp, 5 to 8 minutes more.
Spread the cream cheese evenly over the tortillas chips, and arrange the chips on a serving platter.
Combine the fruit of your choice, lime juice, and pequin quebrado in a bowl, and toss to mix. Then arrange the fruit on top of the cream cheese in an artistic fashion (sometimes I make a face using a strawberry for the mouth, grapes for the eyes, and apple slices for the eyebrows; other times I arrange the fruit in concentric circles or in crisscrossing line).
