Whole Grain Wednesdays- Whole Wheat Cinnamon Crunch Tortilla Chips with Strawberry Salsa

Strawberries are everywhere you look right now and I love it!  Fresh berries are my favorite fruits, and I have been eating them as much as I can since they are in season. 

This recipe is one of our favorite summer snacks, and a nice change of pace from your typical chips and salsa. 

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Crunch Tortilla Chips
5 (6-inch) whole wheat tortillas
2 Tablespoons melted butter or non-stick cooking spray
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar

Brush the tortillas with the melted butter (or spray them with the non-stick cooking spray), and cut them into wedges.  Arrange the wedges on a greased baking sheet.  Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and sprinkle the mixture over the tortilla wedges.  Bake the tortillas at 350 degrees until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.  Let them cool before serving.  Serve with strawberry salsa.

Strawberry Salsa
1 cup chopped strawberries
1/2 cup chopped kiwi
1/2 cup chopped seeded cucumber
1 tablespoon honey*
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Mix all ingredients in medium bowl until well blended. Cover. Refrigerate 30 minutes to blend flavors.

*Do not serve honey to children under the age of 1 year.

Enjoy :)
