Apple Pie Salsa with Cinnamon-Sugar Chips

Have a hankering for homemade apple pie, but don't feel like going through the work of making one? Then this apple pie salsa is for you. The salsa is just apple pie filling made on the stovetop. And instead of making pie crust by hand, transform tortillas into cinnamon-sugar chips in just 10 minutes.

Recipe adapted from here.

Apple Pie Salsa
2 cups finely diced apple, peeled and cored (I used 1 very large Mutsu apple)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cornstarch disolved in 1 teaspoon water

Cinnamon-Sugar Chips
5 6-inch tortillas (store bought or homemade)
cooking spray (or 2 tablespoon butter, melted)
1/4 cup cinnamon-sugar

Cinnamon-Sugar Chips
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Cut tortillas into wedges. Spray both sides of the chips with cooking spray (or brush with butter. I used cooking spray to make them slightly healthier). Coat both sides of the chips with cinnamon-sugar. Arrange of the baking sheet in a single layer.

Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, flipping the chips halfway through the baking.

Place on a wire rack and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.

Apple Pie Salsa
Combine the diced apple, lemon juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat until the extracted juice from the apples begins to boil. Add cornstarch water and stir. Continue to boil until liquid has thickened.

Serve with cinnamon-sugar chips.
