Cranberry-Mango Salsa with Tree Chips

This delightfully different salsa features a nice balance of sweet, tart and spicy. The accompanying tree-shaped chips are fun and easy to make using tortillas and a cookie cutter.—Janice Christofferson, Eagle River, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 40 min. + cooling Bake: 5 min./batch
  • Makes
    3-1/2 cups salsa (100 chips)


  • 1 package (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 10 spinach, tomato and/or plain tortillas (8 inches)


  • In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries, sugar and water. Cook over medium heat until the berries pop, about 15 minutes. Combine cornstarch and lime juice until smooth; add to cranberry mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in the mango, jalapeno, onions, cilantro and cumin. Cool. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • Using a 3-inch tree-shaped cookie cutter, cut 10 tree shapes from each tortilla; place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 5-6 minutes or until crisp. Remove chips to wire racks to cool completely. Serve with salsa.
