  • 1
    In deep fat fryer or heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat at least 2 inches oil to 350°F. Add 3 tablespoons of the granulated sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon to a 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag.
  • 2
    Place mini tortilla bowls in batches in preheated oil; fry 1 minute on each side, using tongs to turn boats halfway through, until lightly brown all over. Drain boats upside down on paper towel-lined cookie sheet until slightly cool; toss 4 boats at a time in cinnamon sugar to coat. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat sour cream, remaining 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon with whisk. Set aside.
  • 4
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, mix apples, brown sugar, lemon juice, remaining 1 teaspoon cinnamon and the salt over medium-high heat. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until liquid evaporates and apples are tender.
  • 5
    Divide apple mixture among fried tortilla bowls; top with cinnamon sour cream, and drizzle with caramel topping.
