Berry Apple Salsa with homemade Cinnamon Chips - Recipes
Berry Apple Salsa with Cinnamon Chips
I went to a friends house once, and she was sharing a dish that was very similar to this one, and I think the idea is very fun and summery! You could do it anytime of the year however. The freshness, colors, and taste make this salsa a winner. The cinnamon sugar chips are yummy all by themselves, but together are just great fun.
Berry Apple Salsa
One cup of sliced strawberries
One half cup of blueberries, cut up
One finely chopped kiwi fruit (not so fine that it becomes "mush")
Zest from orange, and juice
Couple drops of lemon juice
Two tablespoons of packed brown sugar
Two tablespoons of apple jelly
Finely chop all ingredients. With a lemon/orange zester, zest your orange. Make sure to only get the bright color off the orange, don't go into the white part of the skin. This outer color has such great flavor! Next, juice your orange well.
Combine everything above, and let chill in the refrigerator. The flavors will mingle well together and taste even better than it does initially.
For more fun, use any other berries you can find, as it will make this appetizer even more appetizing. I like to use different apples, and see which I like best. Remember if you are having a bigger crowd, to double and triple the recipe as needed.
We had a large get together once at the lake, and this appetizer was a real hit. I like to have some sweet appetizers, and also some more savory and salty types of appetizers. It makes a nice balance. Its a lot of fun for a very little bit of effort.
Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla chips
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Ingredients: (I like to double the recipe to have more)
Take four, seven inch flour tortillas
One tablespoon of sugar approximately
One half teaspoon of cinnamon
Take your flour tortillas and cut them up with a pizza cutter, to make your wedges, or tortilla chip shapes. I like to use any of my baking stones, but you can use a pan of any kind, but maybe you will want to spray it with a non stick cooking spray.
Mix together your cinnamon and sugar, set aside.
Very lightly, spray your tortilla wedges with water, and then sprinkle on your cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Place all over the pan, and be careful to not overlap them.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until they look good to you.
Let cool completely, and set out on a nice plate or serving tray with your berry apple salsa!
