Why not make nachos with fresh fruit salsa on a mild cream cheese or goat cheese base? They’re delicious and quick and easy to prepare. In fact, you can pass the toppings and let your guests make their own nachos. Select fruits of three different colors, such as watermelon, strawberries or seedless red grapes; peeled green kiwi or seedless green grapes or honeydew; and banana or other favorites.

Preparation Time: About 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

4 flour tortillas (10 inch size)

2 Tablespoons sugar

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups mixed fruit cut into ½ inch dice

1 3 ounce package nonfat cream cheese

1 to 2 Tablespoons Triple Sec (optional)

  1. Preheat the broiler. Slice each tortilla into 8 pie-shaped wedges. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Quickly dip the tortilla wedges in water, drain briefly on paper toweling or a clean dishcloth, and dip one side in the cinnamon sugar. Arrange on a baking sheet without overlapping. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes, until toasted; let cool.
  2. Plase the fruit in a serving bowl and stir well to combine. In another serving bowl, combine the cheese with the Triple Sec, if using.
  3. Serve a plate of the cinnamon crisps and the bowls of fruit salsa and cheese, or, just before serving, spread the cheese on each cinnamon crisp and top with the salsa.
