Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips
If chick food really exists then this homemade fruit salsa with baked cinnamon sugar tortilla chips is high up on that list!
I like to stick the fruit salsa in the freezer for a while until it gets partially frozen and then pair it up with those buttery, hot, crisp & chewy cinnamon tortilla chips… BLISS I tell ya!!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve curled up on the couch with this stuff while watching a marathon of lifetime movies or yapped on the phone with my sisters for hours while laughing, dipping and eating bowl after bowl.
But my all-time favorite way to enjoy this fruit salsa and cinnamon tortilla chips is to sit on the beach and PEOPLE watch!! Omg that is the “funnest” thing ever. Especially if you have a group of girlfriends with you and it’s a crowded day at the beach. Pure entertainment at it’s best! We easily go though loads of this stuff and not even realize it.
I’ve finally got my husband to try it and he’s hooked! Although I doubt he’d want his friends to know. It’s simple, easy and a great summer appetizer or snack.
You can even make this fruity snack healthier by using whole wheat tortilla, olive oil, and going easy on the sugar (although I’ve never tried it that way, but I hear it’s tasty.)
- 1 pint of strawberries
- ½ cup pineapples (I used canned)
- 1 cup of peaches ( I used canned)
- 3 kiwi's
- 2 Tablespoons of fruit preserve
- (optional) I hardly ever use this unless I'm using all fresh fruit. 6 flour tortillas (8-inch)
- 3-4 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 Tablespoons of sugar
- ½ tablespoon of cinnamon
- cooking oil
- Preheat oven to 350
- Dice up the strawberries, pineapples, peaches and kiwi.
- Place the fruit into a bowl and mix to combine. If using fruit preserve add it in now. Place into the refrigerator to chill. I place mine in the freezer to get it colder faster.
- Spray two baking sheets generously with cooking oil. Set aside.
- Stack tortillas on a plate and slice them into 8 slices.
- Place the tortilla slices on the baking sheets.
- Melt butter in a bowl
- In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar.
- Brush tortillas with butter and then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Bake for 5-7 minutes. (be careful not to over bake. Tortillas will crisp up more as they cool.)
- Remove from oven and let cool.
