Apple Pecan Pie Cronuts with Apple Cider Caramel Drizzle
Gosh, I kind of love stacked foods.
Do you guys remember yesterday when I told you those creamy buffalo chicken quinoa bake photos were burning up space on my computer? Yeah, well believe it or not these photos have been burning up space for longer.
I have just been waiting, waiting for the right time to share these stacks.
Now is the time.
See, I made these back in August when most of the country was still boiling hot. But over here in Colorado where I live, it’s never boiling hot. It just does not happen.
The weather has been so weird since I got home from Oregon over a month ago. Basically, it has rained every single day. No joke every single day. Loud rumbles of thunder, bolts of lighting, heavy hail and just pretty dark.
It is so weird.
And so cozy.
Which just gives me an excuse to light up my beloved Yankee Candles.
It’s kind of awesome.
My brothers think I am crazy. They say I look like a 70-year-old working on my computer with all my candles lit and the lights off. It’s kind of my happy place.
I love fall candles.
But anyway, the day I made these it was dark and stormy.
Oh hey wait, that’s today too. Told you, it really has been storming everyday, but today it is colder. I totally have the heater on me right now. Again, it’s kind of awesome.
You know what is also awesome?
I am obsessed.
It all started with thees BLT Corn Fritter Stacks. Remember those? They were epic. Every since then I have wanted to stack any and all food that I possibly can. Stacked food is just better. It’s fun, it’s cute and typically kind of over the top.
I love over the top food.
Originally, these were stacked to like the ceiling, but then I had to go and get all realistic and take it down a notch. Looking back, I wish I would have just gone all out. Those things were crazy, but so darn awesome.
Ugh. My realistic brain needs to shut itself off sometimes.
I guess my super stacks would have been similar to a runway show with crazy designs that are really cool but no one would actually ever wear. These are the more sensible version, not to mention way more easily eaten.
The first step to making these is the crockpot chicken chili con carne. Oh my gosh, so good, This alone is so awesome. You will be so happy for the leftovers the next day. It makes the best lunch. So good.
Just throw everything in the crockpot in the morning, go to work, go to school, take a nap, whatever. Then come home and smell the amazingness that is your house! Mmm! It’s gonna smell so good!
Then you gotta make the jumbo baked tortilla chips. It’s so easy – promise, and so worth it because you are going to season those babies up. Trust me, it is so good! Then just melt some cheese, stack and devour.
Oh wait, but first? First you have to load those stacks up with topping. Avocado, BACON, cilantro, green onions, jalapenos, greek yogurt and yes, FRITOS!
Just do it. Do it all.

Ok, and now devour!
Does this call for 1 oz or 12 oz of beer? The layout of the recipe makes it unclear to me. Thanks!
