Baked Cinnamon Tortilla chips & sweet fruit salsa

Cinnamon Chips and Fruit Salsa

FRUIT SALSA

I’ve found several different fruit salsas online to accompany cinnamon chips. Many of them include a variety of fruits such as kiwi, apples, always strawberries, pineapple, mango, etc… And a number of them look like yummy finely chopped up fruit salads. Mine isn’t very different, I just wanted it too look more like traditional salsa. I wanted it a little juicier and mostly red with specs of green and some lighter/yellowy parts. Well, I think I was successful. (I tricked my buddy Nate. He totally thought it was regular salsa. Ha ha.)

Sweet Fruit Salsa

Ingredients:
1 pound strawberries
1 mango
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
8oz can of crushed pineapple in its own juice.

Optional: Fresh mint

  • Wash strawberries, cut off the tops and discard the hull.
  • Dice strawberries into small square shaped pieces and place in medium bowl
  • Add a small amount of the sugar to the berries to draw out some of the juices
  • Dice mango into small squares and add to the strawberries.
  • Add crushed pineapple and juice. Stir to combine
  • Add lime zest, juice and salt.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Add remaining sugar as needed (depending on the sweetness of your fruit and your preference)
  • Optional: finely chop a couple leaves of fresh mint and add to the salsa
  • refrigerate and chill till serving

BAKED CINNAMON TORTILLA CHIPS

I think these are pretty standard. You can use butter instead of canola oil spray….and you could probably add a really small amount of cocoa powder….I haven’t tried it but it might be ok. hmmmm……I might try that.

Cinnamon Chips

Ingredients:
6 flour tortillas (I used 8 inch diameter tortillas aka “medium- soft taco” size. Smaller might be even better. I wouldn’t go any bigger than 8 inches)
3 tablespoons sugar.
1 or 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon (depending on your preference)
Canola oil spray such as Pam

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
  • Cut 2 tortilla into 8 wedges. I like to use a pizza wheel to cut them.
  • Place the 16 wedges onto a baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Spray the tortilla wedges with canola oil spray
  • Using a spoon, sprinkle the chips with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until firm
  • Prepare the remaining tortillas in the same way.

* just tried making some with a bit of unsweetened cocoa powder and it was good. I used a small amount. You couldn’t really tell there was cocoa, it just gave it a slightly bolder favor.
