Mega Kiwi & Strawberry Salsa with Homemade Cinnamon Chips
This simple salsa recipe is a fresh and easy dish that’s wonderful served on homemade cinnamon chips! Great for a New Year's Eve, snacking, or summer parties!
I love the mix of sweet and tart, especially when it is scooped up on a homemade cinnamon chip! I like my salsa chunky so I cut all of the fruits up by hand, dicing them into small little pieces.
Then I put all of the fruit together in a bowl, and sprinkle about a 1/4 cup of sugar over it, tossing everything so it gets mixed together well. Then I squeeze half of a lemon over all of it. The lemon juice helps keep the apples from turning brown and counteracts the sugar giving the salsa a little tartness. Once it is all mixed together I cover it and let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
While the salsa flavors are all coming together you can make the cinnamon chips. Sure you can eat this salsa by the spoonful but you don’t want to miss out on these chips, and they are SO easy to make! All you do is preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lay out flour tortillas on a baking sheet and brush them with melted butter, sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar, and cut them into triangles (like a pizza). Then arrange them on the baking sheet and bake them for about 7-8 minutes. Every oven is different so keep an eye on them, you want them crispy but not burnt.
They looked so good I didn't want to share (but I did)!
