Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips – yes and definitely yes!! You know I’m all about the dips and salsas, especially when they involve something sweet. I’m totally in love! I’ve always been a big fan of baked or fried cinnamon sugar chips (I make these baked ones all the time) but I’ve actually never paired them with fruit salsa until now. But let me tell you it is a match meant to be!
I adapted this recipe from Carrian and Kade Cheney’s new cookbook – Our Oh Sweet Basil Kitchen. This is a wonderful cookbook filled with pretty pictures and more than 100 family-friendly recipes. There’s so many I want to try! And of course I’m going to give you the list – there’s Peach Cobbler Baked French Toast (it has sweetened condensed milk in it and that sounds genius. I love anything with sweetened condensed milk), Hash Browns Ham Frittata, Breakfast Fruit Pizza, Double Chocolate Banana Muffins, Taco Stew, Candied Pecan Brussels Sprouts (with Bacon!), Mexican Fried Rice, Garden Skillet, Braised Dijon Chicken and Potatoes, Razzleberry Crisp, and the Peaches and Cream Bars. Yum yum yum! If you’d like to buy a copy for yourself, you can order the cookbook from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. After trying this delicious fruit salsa I’m excited to make more!
Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips
Yield: About 6 servings
- 1 peach or nectarine , peeled and diced
- 1 mango , peeled, cored and diced
- 3 kiwis , peeled and diced
- 1 (16 oz) pkg. strawberries, hulled and diced
- 1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp strawberry jam
Cinnamon Sugar Chips
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 6 6- inch flour tortillas
- 2 Tbsp butter , melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 18 by 13-inch baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray (or line with a silicone liner or parchment paper), set aside.
For the fruit salsa in a large mixing bowl toss together peach, mango, kiwi, strawberries, lemon juice and strawberry jam. Chill salsa (serve salsa within 2 hours).
In a small bowl mix together sugar and cinnamon. Brush both sides of the tortillas lightly with melted butter. Sprinkle each side of tortillas evenly with cinnamon sugar mixture (I recommend laying them over a cutting board when doing this. Use up all of the cinnamon sugar mixture). Cut tortillas into 6 wedges (like a pizza. To cut them, I like to make 2 stacks of 3 tortillas each then cut through all of them at once. I first cut them into halves then from there each half into 3 wedges). Transfer to prepared baking sheet in a single layer (they'll likely have to overlap slightly in places). Bake in preheated oven about 10 - 12 minutes, turning chips once halfway through baking (they won't be fully crisp throughout by the end, but once cool they should crisp up fully). Let chips cool then serve with fruit salsa.
