One of my favorite spring/summer desserts to make! It’s easy just requires chopping and patiently waiting for the chips to bake if you choose to make them. Now the chips are not necessarily nutritious but the salsa part can be used in different ways. Top your favorite pancakes instead of syrup, eat it by itself, healthy topping for ice cream or “nice” cream, or use with your yogurt or chia pudding in the morning. However you want to eat this, go for it! It does make a lot, so make sure you have other options on how to eat it or make it for a group of people.
Let me first share with you the cinnamon chips. Feel free to only use cinnamon instead of cinnamon sugar, and if you have a better way to making chips like in an air fryer, by all means do it! But this is how I made mine. It is dessert after all.
- 10 flour tortillas
- 3 tbsp cinnamon
- 6 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- Preheat the oven to bake at 350 degrees F.
- Take the tortillas and cut them into quarters so that there are four pieces per tortilla. Add them to a gallon size ziplock bag and add the oil. You may need 1 more tbsp of oil. Toss the bag to coat all the tortillas. This may take a few minutes.
- Mix together the cinnamon and sugar.
- Lay the chips out evenly on a baking sheet or two. You may have to do more than one batch to bake all of them.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or to desired crispiness.
- Continue with the other tortillas until all are cooked.
