A delicious fruit salsa consisting of fresh kiwi, strawberries, apple, and plump berries, served with baked cinnamon tortilla chips. The perfect potluck addition to any barbecue or gathering.
This berrylicious fruit salsa isn’t spicy at all, it utilizes a touch of brown sugar, white sugar and a small amount of any flavor jam! We’ve tried it with strawberry jam, raspberry jam, blackberry jam, and FROG jam.
Regardless of which flavor you choose, the jam really brightens the flavor of the berry combination and pares well with the natural tartness of the kiwi fruit.
Berrylicious Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
1 granny smith apple – peeled, cored and diced
1 Pear – peeled, cored and diced
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 lb fresh strawberries, diced
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor
1 cup white sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
- In a large bowl combine the diced apples, pears, strawberries, kiwis, blueberries and raspberries.
- Mix in a small bowl the brown sugar, white sugar, and jam (we used homemade strawberry jam), then pour over the fruit and gently fold it in.
- Place the fruit salad in the refrigerator and prepare the cinnamon tortilla chips.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Using a pastry brush, lightly coat one side of each tortilla with melted butter.
- Sprinkle tortillas liberally with cinnamon sugar mix.
- Using a pizza cutter, slice the seasoned tortillas into wedges and carefully arrange them in a single layer (not touching!) on a large baking sheet.
- If you opted to use butter flavored cooking spray instead of melted butter, spritz them again with cooking spray just prior to putting them in the oven.
- Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until crispy. Opt for the earlier time as these have a tendency to cook quickly!
Fruit Salsa Recipe Hints, Tips-n-Tricks
♥ If you are bringing the dish to a party or gathering, or it is too hot to bake your own cinnamon chips, cinnamon graham crackers can be used.
♥ The dish should be consumed within a few days as it tends to get pretty soupy if it sets in the fridge for a few days.
♥ To prevent the apple from browning prematurely, you can sprinkle 1/2 tsp of Fruit Fresh over the fruit and allowing it to set for a couple of minutes before adding the sugars/preserves. Also, we opted to use a Granny Smith apple because it offers a slight tartness and doesn’t brown quickly.
♥ The brown sugar really intensifies the flavors of the fruit. If the berries and fruits are ripe enough, the sugars can be omitted altogether. (Do not omit the jam).
♥ This recipe is a good way to make use of stale tortillas.
♥ Whole wheat tortillas may be substituted for plain flour tortillas, but you will have to bake them for an additional 10 to 13 minutes in order to obtain crispy cinnamon chips.
This fruit salsa with baked cinnamon tortilla chips has been a long time favorite for us to bring to 4th of July parties due to the bright, festive colors and flavors. It’s well received and usually disappears first!
