Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

IMG_3364.JPG

Have you ever looked in your fridge and on your counter and wondered, "How are we ever going to finish all of this fruit in time?" Like most of you, I HATE throwing away food - especially when it is delicious fruit I know my family would eat. Instead of wasting it or letting it get too ripe, I like to chop it up and mix it together to make one of my family's favorite treat - Fruit Salsa. You can do just about any combination of fruit and it will always taste great! 

I love to make my own cinnamon sugar coated tortilla chips to go along with it. They are so simple to make and in turn make this salsa that much more delicious.  It can serve as the perfect after school snack or an appetizer when entertaining friends. You can eat it for a couple of days, add it to crepes or to a smoothie.  

Don't ever let your fruit go to waste again! Instead, make Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips! You will love it! Use corn tortillas for a gluten-free option!
