Fruit salsa with cinnamon chips is a fun treat that’s perfect any time of the day. A light snack, light appetizer, or even a simple dessert can be made in minutes with this simple fruit salsa recipe.
I love how easy and versatile this recipe is to make. Not only that, but the cinnamon chips are baked and not fried so you get to enjoy warm freshly made chips that are healthier alternatives to the grease and oil!
I originally adapted this fruit salsa recipe from Tasteofhome.com because my husband’s work was doing a salsa competition at work and I wanted to offer a unique contribution. I’m totally in love with how this stuff turned out and could eat it all day!
How to Make Fruit Salsa From Scratch
Making fruit salsa is super easy (and made even easier thanks to the canned and already prepared items). Simply wash and chop the fresh fruit or dice and drain the canned, toss together with sugar and juice and you’re good to go. You can have this simple dish put together in minutes flat.
Can You Freeze Fruit Salsa?
Yes, if you think you’re not going to eat your fruit salsa soon enough, then go ahead and freeze it in an airtight container to get it to last even longer. You can thaw it out in the fridge overnight before eating and it should still taste great.
What Size Flour Tortillas Work Best?
The flour tortilla size of choice is up to you/. Personally I like the standard sized ones because the chips once cut aren’t too large or too small. If you want a smaller chip the street taco sized tortillas are great and if you want larger ones or to cut them out using cookie cutters for fun shapes, then a larger burrito sized tortilla would be a great option.

Cover and then refrigerate the mixture until serving. The longer you let it rest the better the flavor can develop.

In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar and then sprinkle it on top of the flour tortillas. With a pizza cutter, slice each tortilla into 8 pieces.

Can I use gluten free tortillas?
Gluten free tortillas are usually thinner so they may not hold up as well under the weight of the fruit salsa. If you’re okay with that risk then go for it. Spoons could always help out in the event that the chips fail.
