Salsa de Fruta with Tortilla Chips


Jennifer Carden, author of Toddler Café (August 30, 2008).

Serves 2


Tortilla chips
2 large flour tortillas
2 tablespoons softened butter
Cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling

Salsa de fruta
1 cup organic strawberries, diced
½ cup fresh peaches, diced
¼ cup apple or jicama, small dice
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar


For the chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush tortillas with a butter and sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon sugar.

  2. Place the tortillas on a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.
  3. When cool break the chips up in to pieces.


For the salsa

Combine in a bowl mix gently with a spoon. Serve as dip with chips.


Alternative Serving Suggestions: Serve salsa on a mild white fish, chicken, or turkey burger.  Add very ripe tomatoes to give this a slightly different flavor.

Helpful Tips: Tell your child they have to shovel the confetti up! Use a slice of apple as a food pusher to help get the salsa on the chip.
