1/4 cup small diced crisp apple or jicama
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2 large flour tortillas
2 tablespoons softened butter
Cinnamon sugar for sprinkling

To make tortilla chips, (bunuelos)
preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brush tortillas with a butter and sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon sugar.
Place the tortillas on a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. When cool break the chips (bunuelos) up in to pieces. Serve the salsa with chips (bunuelos) for scooping.
Tell child they have to shovel the confetti up!
Use a slice of apple as a food pusher to help get the salsa on the chip.

Tip: Add very ripe tomatoes to give this a slightly different flavor.
