  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 2⅔ cups salsa + 36 chips + 24 cucumber slices

This sweet-and-savory fruit salsa is a treat for the eyes. Its mildly spicy flavor pairs perfectly with crisp chips and cucumber slices, but it’s also delicious as a salad topper. For best results, choose nectarines with pale yellow (not green) undertones and a sweet fragrance.


  • 6 corn tortillas, cut into wedges
  • 1 fresh nectarine, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • ½ of a 15-oz. can no-salt-added pinto beans, rinsed and drained (¾ cup)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange tortilla wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until crisp. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together the next seven ingredients (through crushed red pepper). Season with salt and black pepper. Serve with chips and cucumber slices.

This is wonderful as a salsa and a taco filling. One of my favorite FOK recipes.
