Total: 1 hr 40 min Cook: 30 min

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Level: Easy



  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom 
  • Five 10-inch flour tortillas 
  • Cooking spray 
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, grated 
  • 1 Bartlett pear, small-diced 
  • Juice of 1 lime 
  • 3 tablespoons mint preserves 
  • 8 ounces strawberries, chopped 
  • 4 ounces raspberries, chopped 
  • 1 ounce bourbon 
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint, chiffonade 


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Combine the sugar and cardamom in a small bowl. Spray the tops of the tortillas with cooking spray and sprinkle with the cardamom sugar. Cut each tortilla into 10 to 12 wedges and place on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake until crispy and golden, about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  • Meanwhile, make the salsa by combining the apples, pear, lime juice and preserves in a medium bowl. Fold in the strawberries, raspberries and bourbon. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for an hour to allow all the flavors to marry.

  • Before serving, garnish the salsa with the mint. Serve with the tortilla chips.

I served this when I made the Pork Wings and it's a perfect combination.  I'll replace the standard apple sauce when pork is on my menu.  I will substitute the bourbon with cold pressed apple juice and a splash of Balsamic vinegar if children are eating.   See All Reviews Post Review
