Fruits and veggies blend together for this spicy sweet delight. We were sent this recipe from TasteofHome.com and our tasting panel loved it. We have the nutritional breakdown WITH and WITHOUT the corn tortillas, in case you want to use your own brand of tortilla chip.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a large bowl, stir together all the ingredients EXCEPT 1 1/2 teaspoons ancho chili pepper, the cooking spray and the corn tortillas.

3. Lightly coat a baking sheet with the cooking spray.

4. Place the cut tortilla strips on the baking sheet and spray them with butter. Then sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons ancho chili pepper on the top. Bake 8-12 minutes, until they are crisp.

Cooked, Cut Tortilla Strips

5. Divide the salad into 4 servings and top with tortilla strips. (You can also use tortilla chips if you don't want to bake your own.)
