Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
Chips and salsa is one of our most favorite snacks right now, so we decided to try something new by making this delicious Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips. It is so good! Just sweet enough, but also so fresh and tart with all of the fruit and lemon combining into a perfect fruit salsa. This isn’t a traditional salsa recipe that you would find in a Mexican restaurant, it’s more like a sweet berry fruit salad.
The tortilla chips are baked in the oven just until crisp. The sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar adds just the right flavor and balances with the fruit salsa so well.
(the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the printable recipe card):
- 8 ounces fresh raspberries – cut the raspberries in half to be a good size for the salsa. They will also break down a bit in the salsa.
- 1 pound fresh strawberries – remove the stems and leaves, then dice the strawberries into small pieces.
- 1/4 of a cantaloupe – remove the seeds and the peel, then dice the cantaloupe into small pieces.
- 2 Granny Smith apples – peel the apples and remove the core, then dice the apples into small pieces.
- Lemon – you’ll be using both the lemon zest and the juice from the lemon in the fruit salsa.
- 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam – the jam adds extra sweetness and flavor to the salsa.
- 10-inch flour tortillas – you’ll use 8 of the tortillas to make baked cinnamon sugar chips.
- Non-stick cooking spray – the cooking spray keeps the tortillas from sticking while also causing the cinnamon and sugar to adhere to the tortillas.
- Granulated sugar and ground cinnamon
How To Make Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
- Combine all of the fruit and berries in a large mixing bowl. Add the zest of the lemon and the juice from the lemon, plus the seedless raspberry jam.
- Mix the fruit salsa together, then set aside.
- Spray the tortillas on both sides with the non-stick cooking spray, then combine the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on the tortillas. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. Spread the tortillas out on cookie sheets, then bake at 350ºF for 8-12 minutes, just until they begin to brown.
- Cool the tortilla chips on the cookie sheets. They will get crispier as they cool.
- Serve the fruit salsa chilled or at room temperature with the cinnamon sugar chips.
Feel free to get creative with your fruit salsa! This salsa is a bit tart and just sweet enough. If you find you would like it to be sweeter, just add granulated sugar until it reaches your desired level of sweetness. Here are some variations you might enjoy:
- Strawberry jam – you can use 1/4 cup of strawberry jam instead of the raspberry
- Lime – feel free to swap out the lemon juice and zest for lime. Limes are usually smaller, so you may need to use two limes.
- Kiwi – Kiwi is a great replacement for any of the fruit in the salsa. Try using diced kiwi instead of cantaloupe.
- Peaches – peaches are delicious in this salsa when used in place of the cantaloupe.
How to Store
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. The tortilla chips can be kept in a paper bag or a zip top bag at room temperature for up to three days as well.
How To Serve Fruit Salsa:
- Cinnamon Chips: If you don’t want to make your own cinnamon chips, you can serve this with store bought cinnamon sugar chips for scooping.
- Ice Cream: Spoon over vanilla ice cream for a delicious treat.
- Cake: We love to eat this over angel food cake or any white cake.
