I learned how to make this recipe when I was a Tupperware consultant. Yes, Tupperware is still around! No, it’s not just for old ladies! I actually had a lot of fun when I was a consultant, hosting cooking parties and learning new recipes. For this recipe, I used my Quick Chef Pro. By using this, you don’t have to cut all the fruit by hand. And it’s so easy to use. Another bonus is that it doesn’t have to be plugged in, so you can use it anywhere, which makes it perfect for people that like to go camping! My boys love turning the handle and chopping everything up. Since the blades are inside the container, and it’s covered, I don’t have to worry about them getting cut. While they like the Quick Chef Pro, they LOVE the Chop ‘N Prep Chef because you pull a handle, that is attached to a pulley type system, kind of like starting a lawnmower. While I own, and love, both of them, the Quick Chef Pro gives you more control on how big or small you want to cut things, which is why I used it to make this salsa. I’ve even used it to make homemade ice cream before!
Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar
- Slice and core apple. I use this awesome gadget that slices the apple into wedges and cores it all at once. Put your apple into the Quick Chef Pro and turn the handle a few times. Cut until the apple is in chunks that are a little bigger than you want them to be. This usually takes me about 4 or 5 turns.
- Hull strawberries. Peel banana and cut in half. Mix cinnamon and sugar. Add strawberries, banana and cinnamon sugar mixture to Quick Chef Pro and turn the handle until desired consistency. I like my salsa pretty chunky, so I only turn the handle about 3 or 4 more times.
Cinnamon Tortilla Chips
Package of 6-inch flour tortillas
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cinnamon and sugar together and set aside.
- Using a pizza cutter, cut tortillas into 8 wedges. Place a single layer on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Bake 10-12 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.
If you don’t own a Quick Chef Pro, I’m sure you can use a food processor or chop by hand. I don’t own a food processor, so I’m not sure how they work. This recipe is awesome though because you can add what you like and leave out things you don’t. If you don’t like bananas, don’t add them. If you really love strawberries, add even more. Maybe try adding kiwi or mango. Want more cinnamon, throw some more in there! The possibilities are endless! It’s a nice refreshing snack that doesn’t come with a ton of calories! The best thing, though, is that you can get your kids involved and kids are more likely to eat something if they help make it.
