Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

Hello friends, I'm back from vacation! Did you miss me? I know I missed you all! We had a fabulous week in Clearwater Beach, Florida but it feels good to be home. If you follow me on social media at all then you got to catch a glimpse of my trip. If not, don't fear! I'll be sharing an overview later this week along with some pics just so you can see what I was up to!
For now, let's talk Mexican food. Do you love it or hate it? I am a HUGE fan! Honestly, I could eat a Mexican dish every day for the rest of my life. Tacos, enchiladas, name it, I love it.
This month is Mexican month for the Blogger Recipe Challenge group. I can't wait to share some of my favorite recipes with you! This first one isn't your traditional Mexican dish. I created a delicious fruit salsa and paired it with cinnamon sugar tortilla chips. Everyone has a traditional salsa and chips recipe, so I wanted to mix things up a bit!
The fruit salsa is fresh and sweet, but not too sweet…
