When that sweet tooth creeps up, but you don't want to overdo it, try these Apple Nachos.
When you stop eating sugar-packed and processed foods, it's really incredible how your taste buds change and something as mundane as an apple can be your ticket to curb that sweet tooth.
Now, I originally made this recipe as a Super Bowl Sunday treat for some guests (which was a total hit!) because I wanted to serve something on the healthier side. And now it's something I make a few times a month when I really have that craving for something sweet and satisfying.
This recipe shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes to prepare. Most of the time is spent washing and slicing up those apples.
