We always have apples in the house, so it’s extra easy to whip up a bowl of Apple Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips for movie night, a fun dessert for taco night, or even a yummy lunch box treat. It tastes so much like a deconstructed apple pie! And this is much quicker to make than a whole pie.

The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make the Apple Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the printable recipe card):

  • Apples – You can use more tart apples, such as Granny Smith, or sweeter apples–whichever you prefer.
  • Lemon juice – Fresh lemon juice is always best, but the lemon juice from a bottle works well too.
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Water
  • Cornstarch
  • Flour tortillas – Use regular 6-inch flour tortillas
  • Non-stick cooking spray – This spray will be used to lightly coat both sides of the tortillas to allow them to crisp up in the oven and for the cinnamon and sugar to stick nicely to the tortillas.

How to Make Apple Pie Dip with Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Peel and core the apples and cut them into 1/4-inch cubes.

In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and ground cinnamon. Add the lemon juice and water. Stir in the cubed apples.

Heat the apple mixture over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the apples are tender, about 10 minutes (cooking time depends on the type of apples used).

Remove about 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid from the pan and pour into a small bowl. Add the cornstarch and mix well. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan. Cook on low, stirring constantly, until thickened. Pour the salsa into a serving bowl to cool.

Spray both sides of the flour tortillas with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over both sides of each tortilla.

Cut each of the tortillas into 8 wedges.

Bake the tortilla chips (you may have to do this in several batches) at 350ºF for 8-12 minutes until they are beginning to brown around the edges. Remove the chips from the cookie sheets with a spatula and place on a serving dish.

Serve the apple salsa and chips together for dipping.

Substitutions

Pie Crust – Instead of tortillas, you can unroll refrigerated pie crust and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, then bake until golden brown and use as chips for the apple salsa.

Nutmeg – Add a light sprinkle of ground nutmeg to the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Tart vs Sweet Apples – If you’d like a more tart flavor to your salsa, go for an apple such as a Granny Smith that is more sour. If you prefer a sweeter flavor, try a classic sweet baking apple, like Golden Delicious.

How to Store Leftovers

Keep the leftover salsa in an airtight food storage container in the refrigerator for up to three days. The chips can be kept in a zip-top bag at room temperature.
