Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Trying to get back in the swing of things has been difficult since saying goodbye to Seamus. Everything looks the same yet it feels so different. It’s quieter without the sound of his collar jingling as he walked around. I keep expecting to see him on the couch or hear his signature scratch-and-drag on the side door to be let in. Him being gone feels so surreal and if I’m left with my own thoughts for too long, I usually end up bawling my eyes out. So these last two days I’ve tried to keep myself busy as much as possible, either spending time with my family and also getting back into blogging.

I took a week-ish off because I gave our master bathroom and then our bedroom a makeover. Painting trim and walls and the whole nine yards. I was already in a cooking slump and so I took the needed time off to get my creative cooking juices flowing. That sounded kind of gross, but you know what I’m saying 🤣.

I feel like I can say pretty much anything these days and you get it. I mean, we did shed tears together after all. By the way, each and every comment has truly meant the world to me and my family, so thank you!

Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Originally I shared this recipe for fruit salsa with baked cinnamon sugar chips 8 years ago. EIGHT!

It was one of the first recipes on this site and oh MY lord the photos were horrendous. Like I should be embarrassed I had those things on here for as long as I did. I had zero business posting those unattractive and blurry photos (which at the time I thought I was the most amazing food photographer everrr- I cringe.) and I can’t believe some of you brave folks actually made the recipe anyway. Well I gave that recipe a make over and decided to repost it for you, incase you missed it 8 years ago.

It basically look like a red lumpy mess of fruit in a bowl with busted up “chips” or strips or whatever I called them. Confession: I actually baked the cinnamon sugar flatbread whole BEFORE cutting them into strips. I think I attempted to pass them off as “shards” or some lie and then said “or you can cut them before baking to make it easier.” Freaking genius, Laurie.

It’s a wonder how I ever wrote a cookbook.

ingredients for making the cinnamon sugar chips

First things first, make the cinnamon sugar chips.

Preheat your oven to 375℉ (or 190℃).

Cut each round flatbread into a 6 triangle wedges. These may look like tortillas, but they are actually wheat flatbread that is slightly thicker and more fluffy than regular tortillas. In a pinch, tortillas can be used but you may need to adjust the baking times and check on them so they don’t burn.

buttered tortilla triangles

Pour 4 tablespoons of melted butter over top of the flatbread wedges.

sprinkle buttered tortillas with cinnamon sugar

Toss and massage the butter onto both sides before arranging the triangles onto two rimmed, metal baking sheets. Generously sprinkle cinnamon sugar on each and every triangle before flipping and dusting the second side.

baked cinnamon sugar chips

Bake for 10 minutes or until crispy and lightly golden. There’s no need to flip, just rotate the pan halfway through baking.

The exterior of the baked cinnamon sugar chips should be nice and crispy but tender enough to bite into.

The perfect vessel to get fruit salsa to your mouth safely.

chopped fruit in bowl

In a large mixing bowl combine the diced strawberries with chopped raspberries, diced green apple and kiwi. Over the years, I’ve learned the easiest way to peel a kiwi is with a spoon. If you don’t already know this trick, it will blow your mind.

Squeeze the juice from 1/2 a lemon over top. My lemon was teeny, so I just used the whole thing. You want about 1 to 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.

add jam

Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons or more of the strawberry preserves into the bowl.

stir to combine

The sugar in the preserves will draw the juices out of fruit to coat the salsa.

Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve and eat!

Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips

This salsa is so good and it may be the easiest salsa you’ll ever make.

And if your kiddos are heading back to school in the next few weeks, this fruit salsa makes for an excellent after school snack. I’ve also made this for brunch too and will feed a crowd perfectly, I just double (and sometimes triple) the recipe for the chips, those always seem to go so fast! Probably because it was hard for me to stop shoveling this into my face after I shot the recipe. I saved the salsa and plan to do a swan dive into it tonight. I serving it with a side glass of rosé too! Eeep!
