Here's a dessert you can feel good about eating! Fresh fruit and zippy jalapeno make a tasty filling for sweetened tortillas. “Fruit-flavored yogurt or honey can be drizzled over the tortillas if desired,” writes Diane Halferty of Corpus Christi, Texas.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cubed fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 cup sliced peeled kiwifruit
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 3 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chopped seeded jalapeno pepper, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 whole wheat tortilla (8 inches), room temperature

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the pineapple, kiwifruit, strawberries, 1 teaspoon sugar and jalapeno if desired. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; set aside.
  • 2. Spray both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray. In a nonstick skillet, heat tortillas for 45-60 seconds on each side or until golden brown. Sprinkle both sides with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
