When I started thinking about this recipe for Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chip Crisps, I had a hard time pinpointing what it actually was. Is it an after school snack that you could so easily serve to the kiddos when they get home from school? Is it something that would get devoured as an appetizer before a dinner party? Is it a lovely light dessert that you could eat without feeling *too* guilty? Ultimately, I decided that it’s all of these things! Talk about versatile.

This fruit salsa with cinnamon tortilla chip crisps comes together quick, and it requires minimal effort to prepare. As long as you have a sharp knife, the process of chopping up the fruit will go quick, and before you know it, you’ll have an appetizer/snack/dessert ready to go. Not only is it versatile in how you can use it, you can also use any fruits you’d like, or whatever is in season. I used apples, an orange, strawberries, and kiwi this time around and loved the combination but I’ll likely change it up every time I make it.

The cinnamon tortilla chips turned out to be the perfect dipper for this salsa. You simply take tortillas and cut them into triangles. Each triangle gets sprayed with a little butter flavored cooking spray (used in place of butter to cut back on fat and calories), then sprinkled with a cinnamon sugar mixture and baked until crisp. Alternatively, you could use graham crackers for dippers if you wanted to eliminate using your oven.

  1. This looks great! If I wanted to use butter instead of cooking spray, how much would I use?

  2. What a cute idea! There are a variety of cinnamon chips I like to buy at a local juice shop and a fruit salsa would be a fun way to serve them when I have friends over. Thanks!

  3. I’m going to try this for a party! Do you think this could be made a few hours in advance? The citrus should keep the fruit from browning & the chips could be stored in a ziploc bag, correct?

  4. Low sodium – I will enjoy trying this!

  5. Omg. Looks great!:)

  6. What is the best fruits to put in the salsa?

    Awesome snack food – and I don’t have to feel guilty eating it!

  10. I am loving citrus right now, this fruit salsa looks like an amazing snack and with cinnamon crisps? Yum!!

  11. I’ve found adding a dash of vanilla to fruit salads really picks up the flavor, as well as using balsamic vinegar in place of sugar

  12. This is my favorite salsa last year, so refreshing and healthy. Mmmmm just bought the most beautiful fruits yesterday. I think I could whip this up today.

  13. Made this last year a few times and it went over very well, no leftovers.

  14. Helpful Tip: Use pizza cutter to cut tortillas into triangles. You can cut more than one at a time and the task is done in a jiffy! We frequently add pears to the salsa and melt jam and/or honey for the sweetener.

  15. Looks so refreshing and great for summer.

  16. Made this for dessert. It was very tasteful with all the different fruit along with cinnamon crisp went very well together. Loved it, will be making this again!!
