Game Day Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips


This blog participates in various forms of advertising,including affiliate marketing. Thank you for your support.

Are you ready for some football?  We are getting ready here at the Jones house.  Cally and I are in the kitchen now making some of our Super Bowl food.

Last night Cally made this awesome Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips.  The salsa is a little sour and really sweet on the cinnamon chips.  If you like fruit you will love this salsa combination.

With the 2 of us cutting up the fruit it did not take anytime at all to throw together.

We are back to the kitchen now and I will be updating and adding pictures as we go today up until game time so stay tuned for more yummy food ideas.

Fruit Salsa 
adapted from: The thread effect

2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Granny Smith apples – peeled, cored and diced
8 oz raspberries
8 oz black berries
1 (16 oz) carton of strawberries, diced
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry; would only use 2 tbsp next time)

for the cinnamon chips:
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
butter flavored cooking spray
cinnamon sugar:
1/.2 cup white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
 In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar, and fruit preserves.  Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes while the oven preheats to 375 degrees.
Coat one side of each flour tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray.  Sprinkle tortillas with desired amount of cinnamon sugar, cut into wedges, and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven 8 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture. This salsa can also be served with cinnamon graham crackers or cinnamon pita chips.
