Sweet baby snakes this is a good one! The crispy taco shells combined with the sweet filling will make your toes curl.
- 6 small taco shells
- oil for frying
- ½ cup cinnamon sugar
- 2 tbsp butter
- 4 apples (peeled, cored, and chopped)
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- pinch salt
Make the cinnamon shells: Cover the bottom of your camping pan with oil and heat over a medium fire until shimmering. Pop one tortilla in at a time and cook for 1 minute. Flip it over and cook for another minute. Remove from heat and coat in cinnamon sugar. Drape over a twig so you get a folded taco and leave to cool. Repeat with the other 3 tortillas.
Make the apple filling: In a large skillet over a medium fire, melt butter. Add apples, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cook until the mixture is jammy—about 10 minutes. Divide the mixture in 4 and scoop into cooled taco shells.
Use oil instead of the butter if you want to make this on the trail and don’t have a way to keep the butter cool.
If you are car camping, add some ice cream or whipped cream on top.
