Apple Salsa

Last Sunday at my cousin Katherine's baptism luncheon, my Aunt B made a delicious apple salsa with cinnamon and sugar chips. So sweet and refreshing, I had quite a bit of this creation. I was raving to Aunt B about the recipe so she sent it to me. I whipped it up last night and it served as a late night snack and for this morning's breakfast.

This would be a hit at a party (where I first tried it) or served with grilled fish.... or a cheesecake topping.... Lots of options!

Apple Salsa:

2 medium tart apples
1 cup strawberries
2 medium kiwis
1 small orange
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple jelly, melted

Cinnamon & Sugar Chips:
8 flour tortillas (7or 8 inches)
1 tablespoon water
¼ cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

In a bowl, chop and combine apples, strawberries, and kiwi. Zest orange peel to measure 1 ½ teaspoons and squeeze juice from orange. Add zest and juice to apple mixture. Stir in brown sugar and melted jelly.

For chips, brush tortillas with water, cinnamon, and sugar mixture. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. Place in a single layer on un-greased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with salsa. Makes 4 cups.
