Berry Salsa with Baked CinnamonTortilla Chips

I had some frozen mixed berries from Costco and wanted to make some berry salsa.  To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, I will serve this,  along with my taco salad, found here  I bought some Margarita glasses from CVS for $2.49 + 25% off that to serve the salsa in.   I used a beach towel for some color on my ourdoor table and my beautiful flower basket for my centerpiece.  Who says you need to spend a lot of $$$$ to have some fun?!!

Berry Salsa:
2 cups mixed berries of your choice
1 jalapeno, deveined, seeded and minced
1 slice red onion, minced
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1 lime, using the zest and the juice
Sweetener or sugar, if needed
Mix the first  four ingredients together.  Squeeze the lime over and add some of the zest.  Mix well.  Taste for desired sweetness.   Serve with Baked Cinnamon Tortilla chips.

Baked Cinnamon Tortilla Chips:                                 
I'm drinking some Apricot Chardonnay iced tea!

4 flour tortillas (I used low-carb)
2 T. melted butter
1/4 cup cinnamon/sugar

Brush the tortillas on both sides with the melted butter and sprinkle with the sugar/cinnamon mixture.  Cut the tortillas in eighths.  Put on a foil- lined baking sheet.  Bake at 450 degrees for 4-5 minutes per side.
