Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

Man oh man, have I got one of my favorite recipes to share today. And it’s super easy, too! I’m talking about this fruit salsa with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips.

Even though we’ve all been social distancing, I can’t wait for the times when my family and friends can all get together for barbecues and picnics. These are the best memories of the summer to me, and I know my kids love them, too.

When it comes to summer food, I love eating fresh food with big flavors. It’s the best when you can really celebrate all the fresh summer produce, like berries, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers, etc. There are so many good recipes out there guys, and I can’t wait to share them all! When it comes to dessert, I love fruit salad. Next up from fruit salad is this fruit salsa. Mmmm mmm! With some fresh homemade cinnamon tortilla chips, it really is so good and perfect for summer snacking.

This recipe is simple and easy with just a few fresh ingredients!

This fruit salsa is super simple with just a few ingredients, but they pack a punch. First, you’ll want to start with some strawberries. When you’re picking out strawberries, look them over and make sure that there are none that have gone bad already. Next, give the container a smell. It should have a fresh strawberry smell. If the strawberries don’t smell like strawberries, you can put them back. They probably won’t be very good.

I also use honeycrisp apples in my salsa because I love them so much. They’re crispy, sweet, and the perfect addition to this salsa. I also like to use pineapple because who doesn’t like fresh pineapple?!

Picking out a pineapple can be a little tricky, but here are a few tips. First, I look for one that is more golden color and less green. Next, I smell the bottom of the pineapple to make sure it has a fresh pineapple smell. If it doesn’t smell like pineapple, it’s probably not ripe yet. You can also try plucking out one of the green tips on the top. If it comes out easily, then the pineapple is ripe.

I also like to add a little lime juice and zest to this fruit salsa to give it a kick! When it comes to sweetening the salsa, you can use sugar or honey. I use sugar because its just quicker and easier, but honey would be amazing, too. Before you add the sweetener, give the fruit a taste. Then add a tablespoon at a time until you’ve reached the desired sweetness. Because fruit can vary with sweetness levels so much, that is how I like to sweeten it up.

This fruit salsa tastes amazing with these fresh baked cinnamon sugar tortilla chips. If it sounds intimidating to make them, don’t be scared! They are super easy, fast, and worth the effort. I’ve also included the recipe on a separate post, if that makes it easier.

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

This refreshing snack is perfect for a summer barbecue!


For the salsa:

  • 2 cups diced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup diced honeycrisp apple (or your favorite apple)
  • 1 cup diced fresh pineapple
  • zest and juice from one lime
  • 1-2 tablespoons granulated sugar

For the cinnamon sugar tortilla chips:

  • 6 soft taco-sized soft flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 heaping tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


For the salsa:

  1. Combine all fruit, lime zest and juice, and sugar in a bowl. Adjust sugar to your taste as needed. Stir well, and place in the fridge to macerate while you prepare the cinnamon sugar tortilla chips. 

For the cinnamon sugar tortilla chips:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Cut tortillas into bite-sized chip pieces (I cut each tortilla into 8 pieces) and toss the pieces in to a medium-sized bowl. Drizzle with butter, and toss to coat. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl, then sprinkle over the top of the tortilla pieces, turning evenly to coat and making sure each tortilla piece is separated and evenly coated. 

  3. Arrange pieces evenly on the baking sheet in a single layer (its okay if the pieces overlap a little). Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes to crisp up. Remove from the sheet and allow to cool completely. Serve with fruit salsa. Salsa is best eaten on the same day its made. Enjoy!
