Not to worry! I presented the challenge to my sous-chefs (children) and began the culinary remedy. Here is the result:
You will need:
A variety of fruit to cut up in the salsa ( I used a red delicious apple, 1 lb strawberries, 6 oz. each blueberries and blackberries, and 5 kiwi)
2-3 teaspoons of fruit preserves (with no sugar added)
2-3 teaspoons of honey
3 tablespoons melted butter
Cinnamon to taste
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine honey and melted butter into a small bowl, and warm (in a microwave for 10 seconds). This will make the honey more liquid and easier to brush onto the tortilla, which is the next step. Go ahead- brush on the honey/butter mixture. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.
2. Put tortillas in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Honey browns faster than sugar, so watch them carefully and pull them out if they begin to look too brown.
3. In the meantime, peel/dice all fruit into small bits. Put into a large mixing bowl. Add the fruit preserves and stir well.
I really like this recipe and the kids are huge fans. The chips are not very sweet prepared this way, and are quite thick because they are made with corn tortillas rather than flour. I found this to be beneficial because the chips held a good amount of the sweet, juicy salsa without crumbling or becoming soggy, and the salsa flavor took center stage.
