A friend of mine threw a margarita/sangria party last night. We had the most awesome food and drinks! She made a cilantro pasta salad, layered bean dip, and an amazing sangria. Another friend brought homemade margarita mix and salsa and chips. I decided to make a sweet fruit salsa with cinnamon tortilla chips. It went over very well -- I was pretty thrilled too because I basically made up the "recipe".
I used strawberries, kiwi, mango and pineapple chopped into tiny little pieces. The fruit was fairly sweet on it's own, so I only added a couple of spoons of homemade strawberry freezer jam to pull it all together.
I also made my own cinnamon tortilla chips. Take some tortillas and spray them with butter flavored cooking spray or brush with melted butter (I did both sides). Then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Then spray again with the cooking spray. This step helps keep the sugar stuck to the chip. Take a pizza cutter and cut into wedges. I baked them for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Yum!
So the party was awesome. It was a great way to celebrate the first day of my two-week vacation. Woo hoo!!!
