Mexican Cinnamon Crunch Desserts

One of the things I love about Mexican food is the crispy textures. I love tortilla chips; fried tortillas on top of tortilla soup; crispy tacos and the crunchy edges of a quesadilla.

I also love fresh fruit and whipped cream. So what could be better than a dessert recipe that combines that great crunch with fresh sweet fruit and cream? I'm thinking - not much!

I recently came across this recipe that combines crunch with sweet fruit - and here it is:

Mexican Cinnamon Crunch Desserts

2 Large Flour Tortillas
1 Tablespoon Water
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Sugar1 tsp. Cinnamon ground
2 cups Whipped Cream
1 cup fresh strawberries
3 fresh or canned Apricots sliced
1 Kiwi peeled, quartered and sliced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Combine water and vanilla. Combine sugar and cinnamon.

Cut each tortilla into 8 triangles. Lightly coat both sides of tortilla with cooking spray. Lightly brush each side with water mixture and sprinkle each side with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Place on a wire rack and set rack onto a sheet pan. Bake at 400 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Just before serving, top each with a dollop of whipped cream and arrange the strawberries, apricots and kiwi.
