Sicilians will definitely get nervous about the idea; I know my husband did when I told him what I was making. Cannoli nachos? In Sicily, cannoli are special, sacred and taken very seriously. And we all know how delicious they are. But miles away from the island, we can create something fun using the same ingredients, but with a twist — nachos made of cannoli dough and dip made of sweetened ricotta, sprinkled with crushed pistachios or chocolate chips.
Once you dip the freshly fried cannoli nachos into the ricotta dip, you will forget all about what shape they are, because they are unmistakably the one and only cannoli flavor we all love. My husband dipped his first nacho with uncertainty, but he gave me a thumbs-up and ate some more. Yes, I was forgiven for making the traditional cylindrical-shaped food in nacho form — it's still the same taste he grew up with.
