Christmas Munchies

This is another favorite recipe of the SkamFam's
Cranberry Salsa with "Tree Chips"
I got this recipe about 3 years ago from a magazine
and have been using it every Christmas since.
It is a yummy gift to share or works well to take to a gathering for an appetizer or snack.
It provides a pretty display at a party and presents itself well as a gift.

1 12oz bag fresh or frozen cranberries (no need to thaw)
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut into eighths
½ red pepper, cut into large chunks
½ medium red onion cut in large chunks
¾ cup sugar
1/3 cup apple juice
3 T chopped fresh cilantro
2 T chopped pickled jalapeno pepper
1 tsp grated lime zest

1 pkg spinach tortillas

Put cranberries, apple, red pepper, & onion in food processor. Pulse until chopped. Transfer to a large glass bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients until blended. Cover & refrigerate or spoon into jars for gift giving.
Heat oven to 375. Using a 3 inch tree shape cookie cutter cut trees from each tortilla. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 8 minutes or until crisp. Remove to a wire a rack to cool completely.
Serve or give with salsa.

(it looks especially cute in a glass jar with a ribbon tied around it.)
