It seems we always have an overabundance of fruit in my house. We buy our fruit at Sam's Club in bulk, so we always have a lot on hand, and it can be difficult to use it all before it spoils.
This will no longer be a problem, however, now that I've discovered fruit salsa.
We've already eaten two batches of the pair in two days, and we only stopped because we ran out of tortillas (don't worry-- I'm headed to the store in a minute to get more).
Warning: Once you make this stuff, you will never stop.
Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla ChipsYields 40 chips
5 tortillas (6 inch)
4 tbsp softened butter
1/4 cup sugar (you may need more or less depending on your taste)
2 tbsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 f (if using toaster oven, preheat to 300 f)
2. Brush butter on both sides of each tortilla.
3. Mix cinnamon and sugar together and put it on a flat plate. Flip each tortilla around in the cinnamon/sugar mixture to cover it completely with the mixture. Repeat until each is covered.
4. Cut each tortilla into 8 pieces. Arrange the pieces in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Note: I tried with one batch to put them on a baking-safe metal drying rack atop a cookie sheet, and they ended up not being crispy! Put them directly onto the baking sheet.
5. Bake until crispy, for about 8-9 minutes.
1 apple, peeled
2 kiwis, peeled
1/2 peach, peeled
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp sugar
1. Dice all except raspberries into small cubes. Mix together in a bowl.
2. Mix lemon juice and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Pour over fruit mixture and coat all the fruit so it doesn't brown.
Note: You don't have to add the lemon juice and sugar if you're eating it immediately, but it does add another level of flavor and it makes the fruit keep for a few extra days!
This is the first batch I made. It doesn't have kiwi.
Yum yum! Eat up!
