Food Week!!! Fruit Salsa

Good Morning!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I shared my Mom's Bunuelo Recipe yesterday and mentioned that a little fruit salsa would be nice on the side... which was mean if I wasn't going to post the actual recipe to it!

Now, you can find a TON of recipes on the Internet, the one that I'm sharing is super simple without a lot of added sugar... which is important when you're having desert with a 5 year old who needs to go to bed at a decent time that night!
Fruit Salsa
2 lbs Fresh Strawberries (ripe or a little over ripe is perfect!)
2 Tbsp Strawberry Jam
1 Tbsp Struvia (I used a sugar substitute but you can use real sugar if you'd prefer)
Rinse and pat dry strawberries.
Remove stems of berries.
Dice berries and place in bowl.
Add your jam and sugar and mix well.
That's it!  So easy!  A lot of recipes use more fruit, but my family likes just the strawberries.
Here's the recipe for Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips just in case you don't feel like making Buneulos.
Baked Cinnamon Sugar Chips
8-10 Flour Tortillas
2 Tbsp Butter (melted)
1/2 C Sugar
1/4 C  Cinnamon
Heat your oven to 350 Degrees
Line 2-3 baking sheets with aluminum foil.
Combine your sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl or shaker.
Lay your tortillas out and brush with melted butter (I use a pastry brush you can use a spoon, whatever you have).  Cut into triangles or strips.  Lay on baking sheet and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Brush another layer of butter on top.
Cook for 8-10 minutes, until your tortillas are nice and crispy. 
So good!  And not too bad for you... well, as far as deserts go anyways! 
Have a great day!
