1/2cup butter, melted or softened
1/4cup cinnamon
3/4cup sugar


For the salsa:

  1. Peel and dice your apple, bananas, kiwi and any other fruits that need to be cut into salsa-sized pieces and place in a medium size bowl.  
  2. Add in any additional smaller fruits and berries and lightly mix together.  In a small bowl, mix together the lime juice, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  
  3. Pour over fruit mixture and mix gently until well incorporated, refrigerate for 15 minutes to let the juices mix. Serve with cinnamon chips and ENJOY!

For the chips:

  1. Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Cut your tortillas into chip-sized triangular pieces and place onto a greased cookie sheet.  
  3. Brush melted or softened butter over the tortilla pieces.  
  4. Sprinkle each tortilla chip generously with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.  
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Cool and serve with fruit salsa.

* When I don't have any butter, spray my tortillas with a butter-flavored cooking spray and then sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over them. They come out just as tasty and with a bit less fat per chip too!
