    For tortilla crisps:

  1. 8 whole-wheat tortillas
  2. 1 tablespoon sugar
  3. 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  4. For fruit salsa:

  5. 3 cups diced fresh fruit, such as apples, oranges, kiwi, strawberries, grapes or other fresh fruit
  6. 2 tablespoons sugar-free jam, any flavor
  7. 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
  8. 2 tablespoons orange juice


Preheat oven to 350 F. Cut each tortilla into 10 wedges. Lay pieces on two baking sheets. Make sure they aren't overlapping. Spray the tortilla pieces with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the tortilla wedges. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the pieces are crisp. Place on a cooling rack and let cool.

Cut the fruit into cubes. Gently mix the fruit together in a mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk together jam, honey and orange juice. Pour this over the diced fruit. Mix gently. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

Serve as a dip or topping for the cinnamon tortilla chips.
