Cinnamon Chips and Fruit Salsa Recipe

Heat your oven to 350 degrees and melt about 2 tbsp of butter. Cut the tortillas into sixths (it’s easiest to do this if you stack them and slice them all at once), brush on both sides with melted butter, sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon and place in a single layer on a large baking sheet; use two if needed.

The tortillas will need about 15 minutes in the oven, which is plenty of time to prepare the salsa. Peel and dice the peaches and kiwis and slice the strawberries, removing the tops first. Combine in a large bowl and add the lime juice, sugar, and salt. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary before refrigerating the salsa for 1-2 hours before serving. You may want to drain off some of the liquid before you serve this fruit salsa recipe, depending on how much liquid the strawberries and kiwi release.

Once the cinnamon chips are done, simply set them aside to cool; alternately, you can prepare the chips once the salsa has had a few hours to refrigerate if you would prefer your cinnamon chips while they are still warm.

This is a dish of contrasts. You have the lovely crunch of the cinnamon chips along with the soft juiciness of the salsa, two textures which go together really nicely, and of course the flavors work great too. The strawberry, kiwi and peach mixture is sure to appeal to all palates, old and young, because everyone loves the natural sweetness of fruit, and it is such an appealing, colorful salsa.

The butter, cinnamon and sugar also introduce flavor to the chips, making them the perfect accompaniment to this fruit salsa. This recipe is about as far removed from the spicy tomato salsas as you can get, but it is worth trying new recipes because you might find one you are crazy about, and this one is especially nice, and versatile enough to be an appetizer, snack or even dessert.
