Fruit Salsa w/ Cinnamon & Sugar Tortilla Chips

Fruit Salsa with cinnamon tortillas_thumb

Keeping up with my dip tradition, I thought I would share this super easy way to liven up everyday fruits. This recipe is great because you can use any fruit that you have on hand; grapes; kiwi; cantaloupe; watermelon; or blackberries would all be delicious additions to this salsa.

This fruit salsa is a perfect way to use up left over; under-ripe; or over-ripe fruits. This is because you can add a little extra lime juice to cut the sweetness of over-ripe fruit or add a bit more honey to sweeten up under-ripe fruit. I have tried this recipe both with and without adding the mint; and I have to say that the mint really does bring this fruit salsa to a new level of freshness.

I have also tried buttering and sugaring only one side of the tortilla wedges and I think that it is necessary to get a little messy and butter and sugar both sides – there really is no sense in giving one side of the tortilla chips all that lovin while creating flavor envy on the unseasoned side.
