Apple Berry Salsa

I made this recipe last weekend. I was pretty darn happy with the results and will surely make it again soon.

I didn't make the cinnamon chips. Instead we bought the Tostito's multigrain chips -I thought it was the perfect blend of salty and sweet. I'm sure you could modify this recipe and use any fruit you want. It doesn't tell you how finely to chop the fruit which bothered me...I just made everything about 1/2 inch.

Cinnamon Chips
4 (7") Flour tortillas
1 T granulated sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 medium Granny Smith apples
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 kiwi, peeled and chopped
1 small orange-before peeling, zest the peel
2 T packed brown sugar
2 T apple jelly

Preheat oven to 400°F.
For cinnamon chips, lightly spray tortillas with water.
Combine sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over tortillas.
Using a pizza cutter, cut each tortilla into 8 wedges; Place in single layer On round baking stone.
Bake 8-10 min.
Or until lightly browned and crisp.
Remove and cool completely.
For salsa, peel, core, and slice apples.
Cut apples into quarters and chop with chopper.
Slice strawberries.
Chop kiwi.
Place fruit in bowl.
Zest orange and juice orange.
Add orange zest, orange juice, brown Sugar, and apple jelly to fruit mixture, stir gently.
Serve with cinnamon chips (or Tostino's multigrain chips!)
