Cinnamon Chips & Fruit Salsa


Cinnamon Chips & Fruit Salsa

When I was a kid, there was this Mexican place that had yummy tortilla strips that were sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. It was my favorite thing when we'd get an order for dessert.     I'd long forgotten about these tasty little morsels. But recently, I discovered a recipe that brought back all those old memories.

The three ingredients are things I always have on hand:

  1. Flour Tortillas
  2. Butter
  3. Cinnamon Sugar

All you do is melt the butter, brush it on a tortilla, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and cut it into strips or wedges (a pizza cutter comes in handy at this point). My kids love to help with spreading the butter and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar. Put the tortillas on a baking sheet, and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let them cool for another 10 minutes, and you're ready to get snacking!


So I probably won't win the World's Healthiest Mom Award for serving my children white flour topped with butter, sprinkled with sugar; but this is definitely a quick, easy "sometimes treat," that the kids love to help prepare. You do get bonus points, however, if you make fruit salsa to serve with the tortilla strips.

Here's a great recipe for fruit salsa. I kind of make up my own, though. I just dice up whatever fruit I have handy, sprinkle in a pinch of sugar, toss in a spoonful of my homemade strawberry jam and stir it up. Today's batch includes nectarines, strawberries, blueberries and a golden delicious apple.

Happy snacking!
