Ingredients for Paleo Berry Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortillas

  • Raspberries – Raspberries are full of vitamin C, Manganese, and vitamin K!

  • Blueberries – Blueberries are often considered a superfruit due to their high levels of antioxidants and immense health benefits.

  • Blackberries – Like raspberries, blackberries are high in vitamin C and vitamin K among other beneficial nutrients.

  • Strawberries – Strawberries are high in water to help keep your body hydrated and your skin glowing.

  • Honey – Depending on your dietary needs, honey can be substituted with maple syrup or sugar.

  • Lime – Adding a sprinkle of lime juice to this (and any) recipe is a great way to enhance the natural flavors of the berries.

  • Almond flour tortillas – Almond flour tortillas can be substituted for any tortilla variety you have on hand.

  • Ghee – Ghee yields the best flavor but any fat source such as olive oil, coconut oil, or butter can be used in its place.

  • Coconut sugar – Coconut sugar can be substituted for any sugar you have on hand.

  • Ground cinnamon – Ground cinnamon adds the perfect hint of spice to balance out the sweetness of both the Berry Salsa and the sugared tortilla chips.

This paleo appetizer comes together in two parts. The first steps walk you through how to make sweet and spicy Cinnamon Sugar Tortillas. Then, while the tortillas are cooling, we’ll move on to make the fresh Berry Salsa. So, to make the tortillas follow these steps: 

  1. Preheat oven. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place your cooling racks on top of the baking sheets and set them aside.

  2. Cut. Cut tortillas into chip-sized triangles.

  3. Mix. In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar.

  4. Arrange tortillas. Carefully lay the tortillas on top of the cooling racks, and brush with melted ghee.

  5. Sprinkle. Sprinkle the top of the tortillas with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Flip the tortillas over, and repeat.

  6. Bake. Bake the tortilla wedges for 8-9 minutes until slightly golden.

  7. Cool. Remove the tortilla chips from the tray (they may seem a bit soft, but they will harden as they cool), and let cool completely.

*If you do not have a brush to spread the ghee and sugar mixture drizzle  the tortillas with ghee, and (very carefully using a spatula) gently mixed until coated. 

Now, moving on to the Berry Salsa Instructions:

  1. Wash and pit. Gather your berries, wash them clean, and pit your strawberries.

  2. Whisk. Whisk together the lime juice, lime zest, and honey, and pour it over the berries.

  3. Mix. Gently mix the ingredients until the berries are well-coated.

  4. Serve. Eat immediately using the cooled cinnamon sugar tortilla chips to dip!

Frequently asked questions

Can I substitute the fruit used in Berry Salsa? 

Yes, any fruit you prefer or have on hand can be used in this Berry Salsa. However, be aware that the tartness of the berries complements the sweetness of the sugar and honey. So, you might want to adjust the amount used or omit these ingredients altogether.

u003cbru003eCan I make Berry Salsa ahead of time? 

Berry Salsa is best served immediately as the berries become soggy. However, it can last in the fridge up to a day. 

u003cbru003eAre there any other Paleo tortilla options?

Yes, in place of almond flour tortillas, you can use cassava flour tortillas instead in order to stick to a Paleo diet. 

u003cbru003eCan I make cinnamon sugar tortilla chips in the air fryer?

Berry Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Tortillas


Ingredients for the Berry Salsa
  • 1 pint raspberries- washed and dried
  • 1 pint blueberries washed and dried
  • 1 pint blackberries washed and dried
  • 1 pint strawberries halved quartered if very large, washed and dried
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Zest and juice from 1 lime
Ingredients for the Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips
  • Almond flour tortillas cut into 6 wedges
  • 2 tbsp ghee melted
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp ground cinnamon


Directions for the Berry Salsa
  • In a small bowl, whisk the honey, lime zest, and juice, pour over the berries.
  • Gently mix.
  • Serve immediately with cinnamon sugar tortillas.
Directions for the Cinnamon Sugar Tortillas
  • Preheat oven to 425-degree F line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and place cooling racks on top, and set aside (no worries if you just have one cooling rack, you may need to bake in batches)
  • In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and coconut sugar and set aside.
  • Carefully lay the tortilla wedges onto the racks, and brush with melted ghee, sprinkle with the cinnamon mix, carefully flip, and do the same to the other side. You want to ensure they are evenly coated and sprinkled with both the ghee and cinnamon mixture. Alternatively, if you do not have a brush, you can add the tortillas wedges to a bowl, drizzle with ghee, and use a spatula to gently mix until coated. I found this is a little tricky, as almond flour tortillas break easily, so handle with a little extra care
  • Bake tortilla wedges for 8-9 minutes until slightly golden, remove from the tray, and allow to cool- continuing in batches as needed.
  • The tortillas may still seem a little soft when you remove them, but they will continue to crisp as they cool
  • Allow to cool completely
