Two weeks spent eating an unthinkable amount of pub food of
fish burgers and chips in Ireland and London had me craving fresh fruit. This recipe combines a fruit salsa of strawberries, apples, kiwis, and raspberries with homemade cinnamon tortilla chips. Although the addition of white and brown sugar decreases the healthiness of the fruit it truly enhances the natural sweetness of the fruit. To keep the recipe healthier, only add one tablespoon of white sugar and omit the brown sugar completely or use fresh pita bread instead of the cinnamon chips!
for the fruit salsa:
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced
8 oz raspberries
1 (16 oz) carton of strawberries, diced
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry; would only use 2 tbsp next time)
for the cinnamon chips:
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar, and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes while the oven preheats to 350 degrees.
2. Coat one side of each flour tortilla with melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray. Sprinkle tortillas with desired amount of cinnamon sugar, cut into wedges, and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Spray again with cooking spray (not necessary if using melted butter).
3. Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture. This salsa can also be served with cinnamon graham crackers or cinnamon pita chips. Best when made and eaten the same day otherwise the fruit gives off so too much juice and it gets runny.
