Ingredients

Fruit Salsa

  • 1 pound strawberries finely chopped
  • 2 small apples finely chopped
  • 8 ounces raspberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 mango or peach
  • Juice of half a lemon or lime
  • ΒΌ cup fruit preserves we typically use cherry, strawberry, or apricot

Cinnamon Chips

  • 10 soft taco sized flour tortillas
  • β…“ cup melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray
  • β…“ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Fruit Salsa

  • Wash and cut all of the fresh fruit. This can be done by hand with a sharp knife, using a food chopper, or by pulsing in a food processor a few times. They should be fairly finely chopped and evenly sized so you get a little of each fruit with each scoop. Squeeze the lemon or lime juice over the apples right after cutting them to keep them from turning brown.
  • Add all over the chopped fruit to a large bowl along with the fruit preserves and toss well to coat. Let sit 15 minutes, then toss again and taste. You can add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar if needed. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Cinnamon Chips

  • Brush the tortillas with the melted butter or spray with baking spray. Stack five tortillas at a time and use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to slice into triangles.
  • Combine cinnamon and sugar in a shaker container or bowl.
  • Arrange the tortilla chips in a single layer on a baking sheet and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes until crisp. Remove and let sit for 15 minutes. The chips will continue to crisp up as they cool and can be made up to 1 week ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature.

Notes

  • Other fruit: Kiwi, chopped pineapple, and grapes also work well in fruit salsa. The only fruit I really steer clear from in this are bananas, which get too mushy and brown too much.
  • Frozen berries: You can get away with using a frozen berry mix, although we like fresh best both in terms of flavor and texture as the frozen fruit tends to release a lot more liquid.
  • Chip hack: Add to a ziploc bag with the cinnamon sugar mixture and shake well if you want to coat both sides, rather than flipping them over one by one, which would be tedious. You could also place each chip in a muffin tin and bake that way for a curved scoop effect if you want.
  • Shortcut: Cinnamon pita chips or cinnamon graham crackers can be purchased from the store and make a great substitute if you don't want to bother making the cinnamon chips at home.
