We are still eating up those peaches from a few weeks ago. Of course, that is not a bad thing. It's not a bad thing because I can come up with recipes such as this Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Chips.
I made this last Saturday evening for supper. We eat a lot of fruit in our house and fruit is still plentiful at the stores. With the peaches we already had, I knew that kiwi and strawberries would blend quite nicely into a fruit salad.
Of course, as the wheels started turning, I thought it would a perfect time to try to make fruit salsa. I also wanted to try to make the baked cinnamon chips. My husband (thanks to his sister in law) has made baked tortilla chips before and they are delicious. I have never tried cinnamon chips with flour tortillas.
They are delicious as well. Trust me. They are also extremely easy to make.
This fruit salsa with baked cinnamon chips would be a great addition to your child's lunch box. What would say "special from mom treat" like a cup of fruit salsa and cinnamon chips on the side?
Can I use any fruit I want?
This recipe is so adaptable. You can use any flavor of jelly you wish (we used strawberry). You can also add your favorite fruit. Completely make it your recipe. Use mine as a guide and adapt as needed.
You can also use any fruit you have on hand or that is in season. I do recommend strawberries however if you don't like strawberries, they aren't necessary. I would make sure to use grapes if you don't have any strawberries. Add that punch of flavor.

How to make the baked cinnamon chips
Is making the cinnamon chips hard? No, not at all. All you need is some flour tortillas, butter and cinnamon sugar mixture.
The cinnamon chips only take a few minutes to bake. Add as little or as much(!) cinnamon sugar as you want. We like cinnamon here. Be sure preheat the oven completely before you put the tortillas in.
Also, when you remove the chips from the oven, let them cool for about 5-10 minutes. They will harden on their own and turn more chip-like. When they are removed from the oven, they may not be completely crisp yet. That is okay.
Give it time.
