10 flour tortillas (8 inches)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar

For chips, brush tortillas with butter; cut each into 8 wedges. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over tortillas. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes or until just crisp. Serve with fruit salsa.

Tips and Tricks
Use a vegetable peeler to peel the kiwi fruit. Vary the salsa by using different types of fruit. To save time, buy premixed cinnamon sugar.

Older kids can help slice the fruit. Mix fruit in bowl. Sprinkle sugar over tortillas.

I have made this for a couple of years and always just spray the tortillas with butter flavored cooking spray, then sprinkle with cinn. and sugar. They taste great!
