It's great with the cinnamon chips or served on top of grilled chicken or pork.

Ingredients:

Salsa

  • 1 lb. strawberries
  • 2 ripe Roma tomatoes
  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Cinnamon & Sugar Chips

  • 4 flour tortillas
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Dice strawberries, tomato and bell pepper and add to a bowl. Chop onion and cilantro and stir into salsa. Add balsamic vinegar and gently stir to combine and set salsa aside.
