Fruit Salsa & Cinnamon Chips Recipe
Here, in Florida, we haven’t had much of a winter. Actually, we have only had a handful of cold days and maybe 3 freezing days. Take today for example, the high is supposed to be in the 80′s, in February. That’s crazy! However, all of this heat makes me think of summer and summer makes me think of fresh fruit…. ah, my mouth is already watering.
I love fruit and I love chips and salsa so when I came upon this recipe it seemed like the best of both worlds! I really like this recipe because I can bring it with me to the kids belts office and snack on it throughout the day and not feel too guilty about it. It is fruit, afterall. I found the recipe on Allrecipes, their site has never let me down!
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced
8 ounces raspberries
1 (16 oz) carton of strawberries, diced
1 tablespoon white sugar (more or less to taste)
1 tablespoon brown sugar (more or less to taste)
3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry)
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas (you can find all kinds of low cal versions out there)
butter flavored cooking spray
1 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. Spray each side of the flour tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray. Cut into wedges with a pizza cutter and then dredge the wedges in the cinnamon sugar. Arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
4.Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture. This salsa can also be serve with cinnamon graham grackers or cinnamon pita chips. Best when made and eaten the same day otherwise the fruit gives off so too much juice and it gets runny.
Yummy and what a great way to get the kids to eat their fruit, too! You can reduce/eliminate the sugar if you like. The riper the fruit, the sweeter it will be naturally so you may not need to add much sugar at all. I hope you enjoy it, I know I will!
