Well I decided to make salsa today, I have to wait for it to cool to really see if I like it or not. It seems to be OK while it is hot but hot salsa on chips is not to appealing to me. Then I thought why not make a fruit salsa for the salsa contest at the Farmers Market tomorrow. So I made the fruit salas with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips. I have to say it taste very good. Then again I really like fruit. I had to make a lot of the chips because they are also very good. I will post some pictures and the recipes.


2 pounds roma (plum)
1-1/2 ounces roma (plum)
tomatoes, chopped
1-3/4 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon and 3/4 teaspoon
lemon juice
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cayenne
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/3 red onion, chopped
1/3 white onion, chopped
1/3 yellow onion, chopped
5 ounces jalapeno peppers,
1/8 bunch fresh cilantro,

Bring a large saucepan of water to boil. Briefly place 1 pound tomatoes into water to loosen skins and set color. Drain, peel and crush.

Mix chopped tomatoes, garlic powder, lemon juice, salt, cayenne pepper and cumin into the saucepan with crushed tomatoes. Whip to desired thickness. Bring to a boil. Mix in red onion, white onion, yellow onion, jalapeno peppers and cilantro. Continue boiling until vegetables are soft and mixture has reached desired consistency. Remove from heat. Refrigerate until serving

Fruit Salsa

2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Golden Delicious apples peeled, cored and diced
8 ounces raspberries
1 pound strawberries
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor

10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
butter flavored cooking spray
2 cups cinnamon sugar

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, Golden Delicious apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Coat one side of each flour tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray. Cut into wedges and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle wedges with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Spray again with cooking spray.
Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture.
I love this fruit one you really need to try it. I bet it would be good on chicken and fish warmed up.
