“This tortilla sundae is served with a mango-strawberry-apple 'salsa.' The base is a corn tortilla fried in oil and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. The sweet tortilla shells can be fried the day before serving, as long as they are wrapped in foil or stored in a tin. Keeping color in mind, you can substitute other fruits in the salsa.”

Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. In a 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat to 370 degrees or until a tortilla strip dropped in sizzles vigorously. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside. Using tongs, slide one tortilla into the oil. Fry, turning once, until it stops sizzling and turns golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove and set on paper towels lining a large wire rack set over a shallow pan. Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar. Repeat with one tortilla at a time, then the tortilla strips. (Can be stored in foil or a large tin overnight.)
  2. Up to 4 hours ahead, mix next 7 ingredients for salsa; refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Put 3 small scoops of sorbet or ice cream on each tortilla. Top with fruit, garnish with tortilla strips and serve immediately.

For a fun presentation, consider serving this sundae in a "tortilla bowl". [Make bowls by floating a 6" corn tortilla in deep hot oil. Press down in the center with a ladle. Hold until bowl is formed and becomes crisp. Sprinkle with the sugar & cinnamon mixture.]

I added this with the mexican themed couple's wedding shower. The salsa was wonderful. It was very easy to make and gets better the longer it chills. It also looks great! My mom said this was the best fruit salsa she ever had!

This wasn't a hit with the kids, although they did like the cinnamon-sugar tortillas. The minted mango salsa was not their thing. Just to pass on... We tried with both flour and corn tortillas. Stick to the corn tortillas as the recipe directs. They were better than the flour.
