- Pour over fruit mixture and mix gently until well incorporated, refrigerate for 15 minutes to let the juices mix. Serve with cinnamon chips and ENJOY!
For the chips:
- Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
- Cut your tortillas into chip-sized triangular pieces and place onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Brush melted or softened butter over the tortilla pieces.
- Sprinkle each tortilla chip generously with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes.

* When I don't have any butter, spray my tortillas with a butter-flavored cooking spray and then sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over them. They come out just as tasty and with a bit less fat per chip too!
