Everyone knows that chips and salsa are a delicious precursor to a Mexican meal. But what about giving them a sweet and spicy and rich peanut butter makeover to continue the party post-dinner?

It’s time to introduce Peanut Butter Dessert Chips with Fruit Salsa, a dish wherein plain flour tortillas are brushed with a decadent peanut butter, brown sugar and butter mixture and baked until crispy, then served with jam or preserves. It’s a snap to prepare and makes for some sweetly addictive eating.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4-6 servings

PB Tortilla Chips


4 8-inch flour tortillas
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter
1 teaspoon brown sugar
⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
1 large spoonful (2-3 tablespoons) jam or preserves of your choice


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Slice each tortilla into 8 separate wedges, the same way you would a pizza. Place the
wedges on your prepared baking sheet.

2. In a small, microwave-safe bowl, heat butter on high in the microwave for 10-20 seconds, or until melted and warm. Stir in the peanut butter, which should become soft and easily mixed in the residual heat of the butter; stir until smooth. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon, stirring until the mixture is thick and smooth.


3. Using a pastry brush (or, if like me, you can’t find it, use a spoon), brush the mixture on each tortilla wedge, trying to ensure even coverage (you will only need to brush the tops; they will have plenty of flavor). If you find the raisin bits distracting, remove them (you can add them to the “fruit salsa” for extra texture).

4. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until crispy. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes. Transfer to a dish, and serve with a big spoonful of preserves or jam.

    mmm, this looks fantastically yum. I always go for strawberry jam usually but I think fig jam would play off the raisins and cinnamon in the peanut butter really well here :)

  2. marge brown says:

    I would go for a strawberry jam if I want sweet or if I want something with a little bit I’d use lingonberry preserves. Yummy! They look quite tasty!

  3. Reni Valentine says:

    I think this calls for chocolate-raspberry jam from The Lion Potter in Gettysburg. I know where I’m going this weekend ;)

  4. Brett says:

    Tabasco Jam…keeping with the Mexican/spicy theme

  5. Kathryn Sanders says:

    I would take a jar of the White or Dark Chocolate Dreams, melt it down and drizzle over your crispy tortilla triangles. Sprinkle some toasted almonds or walnuts (or any of your favorite topping!)s and combine your favorite PB & Co. Jam with a scoop of whipped cream for a delicious dipping sauce! Dessert nachos!

  6. Stefanie says:

    Hands down, apple jam. Think apples and peanut butter, redefined.

  7. Nathan Miller says:

    I feel the best flavor of jam, perhaps for the more adult pallet would be a Raspberry Jalapeno Jam that we buy here locally in Indiana

  8. Carrie says:

    Raspberry Jam would be wonderful with these!

  9. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray says:

    Heeheehee, this is so fun! I love twists on typical dishes…especially when they involve peanut butter. I think I would pick strawberry preserves–gotta have those chunks of real fruit to get the full imitation of a salsa dip! Mmm. :)

  10. Lori C says:

    I’d go with strawberry or peach jelly.

  11. Katie Pearman says:

    Rhubarb for sure! Slightly tart to compliment the sweetness of the chips, YUM! :o P x

  12. Alyssa says:

    Call me crazy but I think apple jelly would be great with this!! Cinnamon, raisin, and apple are the perfect fall flavor combination.

  13. Erin says:

    Yum – raspberry jam!

  14. Kari says:

    Marmalade would be good! But I would think it would be good with any jelly! The salt (pb)/sugar combo. Will give this a try! Sounds Delish!

  15. Mary F says:

    I love raspberry, and it looks salsa like, so I might go with it. I do agree with the person who suggested the Raspberry Jalapeno Jam. Might be a winner!

  16. Colleen says:

    I’ve always loved apricot jam with peanut butter. I think it would go well with these too!

  17. Fred @ Savorique Gourmet says:

    What an original twist to the famous Mexican appetizer! I have never thought to PB chips, thanks for sharing this super interesting idea to us!

  18. Nathan Miller says:

    Raspberry Jalapeno!
