Cinnamon Chips with Fruit Salsa
This recipe serves: 6  

For the chips:
6 8-inch flour tortillas
spray olive oil
6 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
1/2 teaspoon anise (fennel) seed (optional)

For the salsa:
1 pint fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
1 large ripe white peach or pear, cut into 1/2 inch dice
1/3 cup fresh mint leaves, thinly slivered, plus 6 whole sprigs for garnish
1-2 jalapeño chili peppers, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, or to taste
2 tablespoons light brown sugar, or to taste

Cooking Instructions
For the chips:

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly spray the tortillas on both sides with oil and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and anise seeds. Cut each tortilla into 6 wedges and arrange on nonstick baking sheets.

2. Bake the tortillas until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove the tortillas from the oven and let cool: the "chips" will crisp on cooling.

3. Spoon the salsa into 6 ramekins, garnish each with a mint sprig, and place in the center of dessert plates. Arrange the chips around the salsa and serve at once.

For the salsa:

1. Cut the strawberries into 1/2 inch dice.

2. Combine all the ingredients for the "salsa" in a bowl and gently toss to mix.

3. Correct the seasoning, adding lime juice or sugar to taste: the "salsa" should be a little sweet and a little sour.
