"The fun of this recipe is that it can be tailored to your tastes. I'm a 'throw it in and see how it turns out' kind of cook, so please adjust the recipe to fit your own tastes. This recipe is best used immediately, as fresh fruit doesn't keep well in the refrigerator. If you prefer baked cinnamon chips, arrange the tortilla triangles in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, and bake 5 to 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Watch them closely so they don't burn!" — CRISSYF

Delicious tortillas, but it's not necessary to fry these. I lightly brushed melted butter over the tortillas, sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and just baked. The sugar caramalized beautifully and the kids said they tasted like Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Due to fruit allergies, I had to eliminate the apples and kiwi, but it was still wonderful just with the berries and bananas. If you have any leftover chips, use them as a base and top with caramel swirl icecream, caramel sauce, chocolate whipped cream and a few chocolate curls. Makes a really pretty presentation! Thanks Crissy!
i loved these chips, but i didn't make the salsa. instead of frying the chips, i sprinkled the chips with cinnamon and sugar and baked them in the oven on 375 degrees farenheit for 4 1/2 minutes. very good!
I too sprayed my chips w/ butter flavor spray & then sprinkled w/ cinamon sugar & baked at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. I added blueberries to the mix & I didn't peel my apple. The only thing I iwll do differently next time is dip the apple pieces in some lemon juice to prevent discoloring. My guests really enjoyed this...thanks!
Also added: fresh pineapple, red grapes, pears, and mandrin oranges, didn't use banana though. Used Fruit Fresh too to keep colors bright. This is an awesome appetizer to serve guests, tastes like fresh fruit pie. Chopping isn't too tedious if you used a chopper (mine is by Pampered Chef) *kids love to help chop.
Wow! This needs to come with a warning: Highly Addictive! This was a beautiful combination of colors and flavors. And no matter what assortment of fresh fruit you use it's bound to be good so use your favorites and use the recipe as a guide. I added chopped peaches to mine I baked the chips vs. frying to keep this a little healthier and lower in fat. So, for the cinnamon chips I used reduced fat tortillas and cut them with a pizza cutter which made things a lot easier. I sprayed them with butter flavored Pam and sprinkled them with the cinnamon sugar. I baked them at 350 for 8 minutes flipped them and baked them for another 7 minutes. They were crispy, sweet and delicious - next time I would double the amount because they went fast. This got a lot of compliments not only for taste, but for creativity. I'll definitely make this again - great recipe!
I'm going to be one of those people you hate, because I'm rating this from the original recipe and the modifications I made. I don't think I would've liked the salsa if I had followed the recipe to a T.
My salsa: 2 kiwi, 2 mangos, 2 pink ladies, 8oz raspberries, 2 tsp sugar, 3 tbsp strawberry preserves, and some lime juice to prevent oxidation of the banana and apple. Chips I used cinnamon sugar from Whole Foods. Next time I might cut down on the apple and add another fruit
(blueberries or peaches or both)
This is my new favorite appetizer. I used frozen strawberries and omitted the bananas and served with wheat thin chips instead of the chips noted here due to time constraints. I couldn't stop eating them. Got rave reviews from others too.
Alternate method for cinn. chips: Cut tortillas as described into equal wedges. Place on wax or parchment paper in single layer; spray both sides with buttered flavored oil. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar on both sides; bake for 7 minutes in 350 degree oven. Delish! A bit messy getting cinn. sugar everywhere! Worth it! These are very good with the fruit salsa.
