Ingredients

QtyIngredient
-- Salsa --
1 cupStrawberries
2 mediumApples; (tart, fresh), cored, sliced
1 mediumMango; - peeled & diced
2 mediumMexican limes; - or 1 regular lime
1/2 teaspoondark brown sugar
1 tablespoonSplenda; - to taste
1/4 teaspoonCayenne pepper; - to taste
1 tablespoonSugar-Free Preserves; - I used apricot
-- Cinnamon Chips --
4 8"low-carb tortillas; - I used Mission brand
1 teaspoonCinnamon
2 teaspoonsSplenda
1/2 teaspoonNon-stick spray

Method

StepInstruction
1You can be flexible on the fruit. Any firm fleshed non-citrus fruit (pears, peaches, apricots, etc.) is fair game for this.
2 Finely dice the fruits (or use a food chopper) and place them in a non-metallic bowl. Grate off the zest from the limes, add it to the bowl and stir. Squeeze the juice of one lime over the fruit. Stir again.
3 Add remaining ingredients, tasting as you go. With the lime, Splenda and cayenne you might want to add 1/2, let it meld awhile and adjust later. The flavor develops as the dish sits in the refrigerator. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes.
4 While the salsa is chilling, make the chips. Pre-heat oven to 350F
5 Start by mixing the cinnamon and Splenda together. If you have a shaker bottle that's an ideal place to mix it. Spray each tortilla lightly with oil then shake the mixture evenly over it. Put them in a stack and cut the stack into 8 wedges.
6 Spread the chips evenly on a baking sheet. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon mix over the thin spots and slide the sheet into the oven. About 8-10 minutes should make them crispy and lightly brown. Remove and cool slightly.
7 Serve about 1/2 cup of salsa with four low-carb cinnamon chips.
