SIMPLE Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips - fruity, summery, light and refreshing fruit salsa with homemade chips #simplepartyfood

Salsa is great, no doubt about it.  But if you are looking for something a little lighter, refreshing and different than the same old same old … then maybe a fruit salsa is what you are looking for.

Plus it doesn’t hurt that it’s full of healthy fruit and is utterly addictive!

This salsa tastes the best when the freshest and ripest fruit is used, making it a summer thing.   So be sure to pick the ripest fruit you can find.  No sloppy soft apples please!

The beauty of this salsa is its versatility.  It can also be used as a condiment on top of swordfish, Mexican food, chicken, chops or steak.  But what makes people really moan and groan is serving it with homemade cinnamon chips!

HOW TO MAKE FRUIT SALSA:

  1. Dice all the fruit into very small dices (we used apple, strawberries, mango, kiwi and raspberries) and sprinkle with some sugar. The sugar will release the juices from the fruit and help soften them and also create more liquid.
  2. Add fruit preserves and refrigerate until ready to serve.

HOW TO MAKE THE CINNAMON CHIPS:

  1. Brush melted butter onto both sides of tortilla.
  2. Sprinkle with sugar mixture on both sides.
  3. Cut tortilla into triangles using a pizza cutter or sharp knife.
  4. Place on baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes, flip chips and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
