Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips, is one of my first Laura Friendly desserts. New to the gluten-free world, I was struggling for sweet treats to make at home. As I was noodling around my kitchen, I came to my corn tortillas and wondered if these could be transformed into a dessert? Maybe… with a little bit of cinnamon and sugar… I could make something like Cinnamon and Sugar toast! But what goes with corn tortillas? Salsa. Perhaps, a sweet and spicy fruit salsa would be a good match!
This Fruit Salsa is so delicious, you really could eat this by itself (and I do). I think it tastes even better as the flavors mingle in the refrigerator for a day. The Cinnamon Chips are also delicious but are best served right away. I hope you enjoy!
