Appetizer Desserts Fruit Side Dish

Fruit Salsa and Homemade Tortilla Chips

I have been making tortilla chips at home for about 10 years now and from the comments on the web it seems to be a brand new thing.  Back in the day when the hubby and I had little money, I would buy cheap flour tortillas and bake them into tortilla chips.  I’m not sure they were that much healthier, but they were yummy!  Stacy’s Pita chips company has a new sugar and cinnamon chip that you can buy or make to go with this.  I love my fruit, so I’d eat this any time.  Great for an appetizer or side dish at a BBQ, party, shower, etc.

Fruit Salsa
yield about 8-10 servings

2 kiwi, peeled and diced
2 apples – like Golden Delicious or if you like tart ones, Granny Smith – peeled, cored and diced
8 ounces raspberries
1 lb. strawberries, sliced
1 Tb. white sugar (or more if you have fruit that is not as sweet)
1 Tb. brown sugar (optional)
3 Tb. fruit preserves like strawberry, raspberry, apricot, etc., slightly warmed in the microwave

4 flour tortillas
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tb. melted butter OR butter spray

1.  Mix all of the fruit in a great big bowl.  Toss with the sugar and preserves.  Cover and put in the fridge for 1 hour at least.
2.  To make cinnamon sugar chips:  preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Cut the tortillas into triangles using a pizza cutter.

3.  Place tortillas on a greased cookie sheet or silicone mat on cookie sheet.  Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.

4.  Brush or spray butter onto the tortillas.  Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top.  Bake for about 10-15 minutes.  They should be crispy and mine are usually just turning brown a little around the edges.  Cool and eat with the salsa.

Tortilla Chips is my own recipe


  1. All of the “new” homemade tortilla chip recipes make me laugh. We’ve been making them forever! Have you tried making them with the popcorn seasoning? The ranch and the kettle corn seasonings make GREAT chips.

  2. […] Our favorite out of all 3 recipes is the spicy cajun.  You don’t have to make it that spicy.  Just a little sprinkle makes your tortilla chips look pretty, but without the heat.  I love the savory chips with guac, salsa, cheese, beef, chicken, tomatoes, or plain.  The sweet tortilla chip can be served alone or with fruit salsa.
