Drizzle a raspberry balsamic reduction over the salsa if you like! This just adds an extra kick to the strawberry basil fruit salsa, but it’s not a necessary step.

I never realized how simple it is to make your own homemade tortilla chips. These baked cinnamon tortilla chips are MADE for fruit salsa, and it’s a match made in heaven. I used large flour tortillas, but I can’t wait to try them using whole wheat or other types of healthier tortillas. These are so easy to make, and they bring out the sweetness in the strawberry salsa.

  2. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl
  3. Stack tortillas on top of each other and cut them into triangles
  4. Lay the chips on baking sheet & lightly cover with olive oil
  5. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar mix over the chips, then flip chips and cover the other side
  6. Bake 10-12 minutes
