I have made this recipe numerous times & everyone ALWAYS LOVES IT! It can take some time to make. I recommend chopping fruit with a food chopper (pampered chef has an excellent one). When I am really crammed with time I buy my cinamom sugar chips from Trader Joe's or if I'm lucky I sometimes find them at a grocery store. When I make the chips myself, after thoroughly cleaning my sink out I put a dinner plate in the sink & stack all the tortillas on it & spray both sides of the tortilla (4 at a time) with I can't believe its not butter or some other butter flavor spray. I then place the cinamon/sugar mix in the container the cinamon usually comes in (since it has the top with holes to sprinkle with) & sprinkle both sides of the tortilla BEFORE CUTTING it. This helps tremendously with the mess! Out of the sink on a seperate plate I cut 4 tortillas at a time with a pizza cutter. I didn't follow the cooking time the recipe reccomends (my oven is old) I would tap a couple of chips & once they felt a little
I have fixed the fruit salsa, which is a terrific accompaniment. However, usually I just fix the cinnamon chips. My friend asked if the chips kept well. I told her I didn't know, we had never had any left! This recipe is a staple in our household. I just served this at our Kentucky Derby party. I used pinking shears instead of my usual pizza cutter. A friend said that the fruit salsa was good, but that he REALLY liked the cinnamon chips with the chocolate that I had for dipping strawberries and pineapple. Still one of my favorite snacks.
I've been making this recipe for years and it's a hit with everyone. You can basically use any kind of fruits you wish and you won't compromise the flavor of this salsa. The cinnamon chips are very tasty with the cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on them and the crunch from baking them in the oven....I love this recipe! Thank you!
I can only comment on the cinnamon chips as that is all I made. I paired them up with a private recipe of kiwi salsa and it was a great match. Don't understand all the fuss in the reviews about how to make the chips mess free. I used whole wheat tortillas, cut it into 8 pieces (like a pizza), brushed on MELTED BUTTER (didn't like the idea of butter from a can), pressed the buttered side into a plate of a equal mix of sugar and cinnamon, laid them all out on stone baking pan, in the oven for the recommended time, and VIOLA, they came out PERFECT. Crisp, yummy. Didn't bother with the sticking them in the muffin pan trick a lot of reviewers suggested bez that only meant more pans for me to clean up and would slow down the number I could pop in the oven in one time. But why bother? I provided a small spoon in the salsa that people used to scoop onto the flat crispy tortilla triangle and it was no problem for anyone. Easy, no mess, no bother, great tasting!
I made this recipe for a school function of about 30 people. Only 3 or 4 enjoyed the salsa. I added some fresh shredded coconut as well as mango. Almost everyone loved the cinnamon tortillas. To make my life easier I sprayed the cut tortillas with the cooking spray, threw them all into a gallon size zippered storage bag, and then added my cinnamon and sugar mix. After a few shakes all the chips were coated on both sides and I just layed them on the pans. Worked a lot easier than doing it one at a time. Overall, it was a miniature version of a fruit salad. But the chips were good without the "salsa".
