Nothing says summer like chips and salsa. Grab some fresh fruit to make this spicy, sweet combo and serve with homemade chips for that extra oomph of flavor.
For the salsa
2 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or less for a milder taste)
Place all of the ingredients but the salt in a blender or food processor and pulse until the ingredients are mixed but still chunky. Transfer the salsa to a bowl, salt it to taste, then cover and refrigerate it until ready to serve. Makes 2 cups.
For the chips
tortillas: corn, wheat, flour
spices: curmin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt
fresh lime or lemon, if desired
Cut the tortillas into 8 wedges. Spray with cooking oil and spice as you wish. Bake at 400 degrees for 6-7 minutes or until the edges start to curl and turn brown. Remove from oven and spritz with citrus. Store in an airtight container. Prior to serving “freshen” in the microwave to recrisp any softer chips.
