Food: Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips

This recipe has been a spring and summertime fave in our house for quite some time. It just tastes like summer. It's so, so yummy and will disappear quickly.  A perfect recipe for a get-together or cookout :)
Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips - adapted from
  • 3 kiwis, peeled and diced
  • 2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 (6 oz.) pkg. raspberries
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry preserves
  • 10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • butter flavored cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon sugar

In a large bowl, combine kiwi, apples, raspberries, strawberries. Add white sugar, brown sugar and fruit preserves. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut flour tortillas (use a pizza cutter) into 8 triangles. Spray each side with butter flavored cooking spray. Place cinnamon sugar mixture into large ziploc bag. Add coated tortilla triangles and shake until thoroughly coated. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, flipping triangles over once while they bake. Cool. *Note: I used mini tortillas from Target - they were about 5" or 6" and cut perfectly into quarters. I had never seen these before but like that they make smaller, more bite-sized triangles than the 10" tortillas :)

Serve fruit salsa with cinnamon chips. Enjoy!


  1. Ashley, you MADE those chips we had last night?!?! I had no idea!!! That makes them 20 million times better. Now I need to try them again. ;)

  2. ashley, we love to make a similar version of this, where it's the kiwis, strawberries, and peaches or mangoes with fresh lime juice & zest with some honey drizzled in...just made it this is TO DIE FOR! we just ditch the cinn. chips half the time and have it as a fruit compote with dinner!

    gotta try this version, too!

    *BTW: we ended up planting a pretty big garden, but none but green beans from seed!

  3. ooh! this looks wonderful! i will have to try this, berries are abundant right now :)
