Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

Fruit Salsa

Basically you can use any fruit that you want. I used finely chopped fresh strawberries, mangoes, kiwis, and pineapple. I added 2 Tb. sugar to sweeten it up, but it isn't necessary. I have also made it with melons, grapes, and other berries, so just use whatever fruit you like (or be like me, and pick whatever is cheap and in season). Canned fruit works as well, it's just not as tasty.

Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • cinnamon sugar
  • Pam cooking spray
Heat oven to 300 degrees F. Cut each tortilla into eight different pieces (a pizza cutter works great). Place on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Spray with Pam and sprinkle with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until chips are crispy but not burned. Serve with fruit salsa.
