- 5 fresh apricots, halved
- 1/4 cup apricot nectar
- 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 flour tortillas (8 inches)
- Butter-flavored cooking spray

- In another nonstick skillet, cook one tortilla over low heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden and crisp. Spritz one side with butter-flavored spray and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar. Repeat with remaining tortilla.
