I loved this, but made some changes after reading ALL of the reviews and making it several times. To cut back on the sweetness and on the juice, I used NO added sugar in the fruit. I used orange marmalade for the preserves and froz peaches in place of raspberries and there was plenty of juice and it was quite sweet. (Sugar draws juice out, so it will have more liquid with the added sugar!)
Also, I used Fuji apples which have less tendency to turn brown, and added the apples last so that they could be stirred into the other fruit to coat the apples. I had NO browning that way.
To save time with the chips, I first sprayed 4 tortillas at a time with butter spray, front and back, and then cut them with the pizza cutter. Then I put the sugar mix ...1 c sugar to 1 t cinnamon,,,into a bowl and dredged the chips 2 at a time. One batch of the sugar mix did 2+ batches of the chips. I simply 'baggied' the remainder and used it another time. I did NOT spray them after sugaring. They don't need it if you spray both sides first.
They did best at about 9-10 minutes baking.
Overall, everyone loved this and neither the fruit nor chips were to sweet.
Eek! I guess I'm going to be one of the very few who disliked this recipe. I followed the directions exactly and wasn't impressed at all. The fruit salsa was very soggy and the cinnamon tortillas were just so-so. My dad liked it, and it's the only reason I give it two stars instead of one. It turned out to be pretty expensive and created a huge mess. I wish I could have liked it as much as everyone else :(
Here's a tip to save time chopping:
Buy an egg slicer (available on the kitchen aisle of most grocery stores for about $4). It works great on strawberries!!!
Just put Them in and slice them and then turn the other way and slice again. It dices them perfectly. I also use it for other soft fruits (kiwi, peaches etc. Just peel & cut into chunks first & use it the same way as with strawberries.
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 crispy & were golden brown they are done! (the chips turn crispier as they cool) I usually use apricot preserves, & granny smith apples or fuji apples. As previous reviewers recomend, I cut the apples last to prevent browning. I sprinkle cinnamon & sugar to my taste for the salsa mix (I cut out brown sugar...to skip a step) I thought with the chips the recipe just didn't need as much sugar. This recipe is very versatile so play around with it! I hope this helps!
I made the chips 2 days ahead of time and the salsa the morning of. I was worried since the fruit was out of season, but it turned out great! I also made a whole tortilla into a bowl, I baked it in a round dish and then served the salsa in that surrounded by the chips. Everyone raved about it! Thanks for a great recipe.
Very tasty! I cut the sugars in half, used plain ol' grape jelly and added blueberries...YUM. After I sprayed & sugared the chips, I stuffed them in my mini muffin tins so that they had the "scoop" affect & everybody raved. I also doubled the chip amount, they went quick! The salsa would also be good with angel food cake or even pound cake, mmmmmm. Thanks Annie!
Have made several times, all with rave reviews. Don't have time to make the tortilla chips??? Substitute them with cinnamon graham crackers.
WOW...USED GRANNY SMITH APPLES,STRAWBERRIES,RASBERRIES,KIWI,AND PLUMS.STRAWBERRY PRESERVES GAVE IT A NICE COLOR.MADE THE NIGHT BEFORE.BOTH FRUIT AND CHIPS WERE STILL FRESH.(COULD MAKE 2 NIGHTS BEFORE)
