1
tablespoon sugar
2

4
Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos (8 inch; from 11-oz package)
3

1
cup finely diced pineapple
1
cup finely diced papaya
1
cup finely diced mango
1/4
cup chopped fresh cilantro
1
tablespoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
1

  • 1 Set oven control to broil. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Brush both sides of each tortilla with butter; sprinkle with sugar-cinnamon mixture. Cut each tortilla into 12 wedges.
  • 2 Place tortilla wedges in single layer in 2 ungreased 15x10x1-inch pans or on 2 cookie sheets. Broil 2 to 4 minutes, turning once, until crispy and golden brown. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.

Expert Tips

Use 3 cups pineapple and omit the papaya and mango for a refreshing pineapple salsa.

Use a pizza cutter to easily cut the tortillas into wedges.

The chips can be made up to one week ahead of time. Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature.
