Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa + Homemade Flour Tortilla Chips

Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa + Homemade Flour Tortilla Chips

Fresh salsas and relishes are my favorite thing to serve with grilled meat and fish during the warm months.  I love the unexpected complementary flavors of the spicy peppers with the sweet strawberries—they really go well together. 

These tortilla chips remind me of my favorite store-bought chips:  Stacy’s Pita Chips.  They’re addictive, so don’t make them unless you can share them!

To get 4 cups of diced strawberries, you’ll need about 1 ½ pints of whole strawberries.  Also, don’t forget to remove the seeds and ribs from the jalapeno because it will be super spicy if you don’t, and the longer it sets with the seeds in it, the more unbearably hot it will become!  Without the seeds and ribs, the salsa has a little kick, but it’s just enough and not overwhelming.
