Well hello there! Boy, do I have a treat for you today!! If you’re anything like us you’re busy, busy in the Summer going to cookouts and looking for something yummy you can make! Today I’m sharing a very simple, light and delicious summer-time fruit salsa with homemade cinnamon sugar chips! Oh-my-yum!
I first made this recipe a few years ago for the first time, but not since. We were having a Memorial Day cookout with family and friends, so I decided to make it again! It’s a great alternative to fattening desserts, plus it’s light and fresh!
You’re going to need:
2 apples, peeled and diced
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 nectarines, diced
8 strawberries, diced
handful of blueberries, cut into fourths
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons fruit preserves (I used natural strawberry)
12 10″ flour tortillas
4 tablespoons melted better
cinnamon sugar mixture
It’s really quite simple, begin preparing your fruits and putting them into a glass bowl. Dice everything pretty small since you’re going for a salsa consistency! Next mix in your white and brown sugar and preserves. Let chill for at least 30 minutes before serving (I made mine the day before, so it sit over night).
For your homemade tortilla chips, grab a tortilla and brush with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, flip over and repeat on the other side. Using a pizza cutter, slice the tortillas to your desired chip size. Do this for the remaining tortillas. Cook for 8 minutes, until lightly brown and slightly crispy. Let cool completely before serving.
Another thing I love about this recipe is it’s super fun and easy for the kids to help make! My little one had a lot of fun helping Mommy in the kitchen, and she did a great job brushing on the butter and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar! Not to mention, she loved telling everyone that she made it all by herself 😉
Don’t be surprised if you are asked numerous times for the recipe 😉 We will certainly be making this one again! I hope you enjoy!
