Instead of salt on your tortilla chips, sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar, then dip in a quick homemade salsa made with winter fruits. Pulsing the salsa in the food processor turns it a pretty pink color and makes it easier to scoop, but if you prefer a chunkier salsa you can skip this step.


Rainbow Salsa:

  • 1 apple, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 Cup diced grapes
  • 1/2 Cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 to 4 Tablespoon fresh lime juice


  • 4 Cup canola oil, for frying
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 10-inch corn tortillas, cut into eighths


To make the salsa

Step 1:

Combine the apple, grapes, pomegranate seeds, and maple syrup in a medium bowl. Season to taste with the lime juice.

Step 2:

Place in a food processor and pulse 3 to 4 times.

Step 3:

To make cinnachips
