Mango Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Mango Salsa.jpeg

Fruit salsa is the perfect summer dish. I love the vibrant colors and bold flavors. I worked in a little café fresh out of culinary school. One of their specialties was mango salsa. Our 80 year old delivery driver Mr. Jerry kept a close eye on the salsa production. He made sure we were chopping the ingredients properly and that the consistency was just right. He wielded a chefs knife like a pro and sang Danke Schoen to all the line cooks.

I love this dish as an appetizer or as a garnish for fish or chicken. Don’t be afraid to add your own touches. Any fruit is delicious added to this recipe. I have tried adding pineapple, kiwi, and strawberries with wonderful results. Disclaimer: The cinnamon sugar chips are completely addictive.

Cut the tortillas into fourths. Deep fry in 325 degree oil until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Mix cinnamon and sugar together in small bowl. Sprinkle chips with cinnamon sugar as soon as they come out of the hot grease. Keep in an airtight container and these chips will stay fresh for weeks!
