Nope, we didn’t stop there.

We’re also pairing it with some Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips.

Seriously.

Dessert. Perfection.

How To Make Sweetened Flour Tortilla Chips For Dipping

Most people are familiar with tortilla chips. 

While I’m no stranger to them myself, thoughts of crispy lightly salted corn tortilla chips are what normally come to mind. Especially when salsa’s involved.

However, with this simple sweet fruit salsa- we need a chip that truly does it justice. 

That’s where these quick & easy cinnamon sugar coated flour tortilla chips come into play.

Warm, crisp flour tortilla triangles are coated in a simple blend of cinnamon & sugar. They’re the perfect option for dipping with this recipe.

To make them, whisk together cinnamon & sugar in a small bowl until evenly combined.

Working in batches of three, lightly spray each side of a tortilla with non stick cooking spray.

Then coat each side in the cinnamon & sugar mixture.

Stack the three tortilla together, one on top of the other.

Using a sharp knife, cut the stacked prepared tortillas into 12 wedges.

While a sharp knife works, I’ve found a metal pizza cutter to actually be the best way to get wedges with clean cuts. Use whichever method you’re more comfortable with.

Repeat until you’ve finished with all the tortillas.

Spread the prepared tortillas out evenly onto a baking sheet, and bake at 350 degrees for 11-12 minutes- or until crisp and lightly golden brown.

  1. This is such a great idea! Do you have any suggestions for a spice (other than cinnamon) on the tortillas that goes well with the salsa? We have a cinnamon allergy in our household. Happy FF, and have a fabulous weekend!

    1. Thanks! You could always just omit the spice altogether, but if I was going to try and replicate that same sweet/earthy effect of cinnamon I’d try using Nutmeg or Allspice instead. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow! What an amazing twist to salsa and chips. I love the sound of your cinnamon sugar tortilla chips so much. This is indeed a perfect pair of dessert. Happy FF. xx

  3. I’ve made this multiple times and it’s always a hit. I have to double the fruit if my grandpa is around because he sits and eats it with a spoon!
