Expert Tips

Substitution: Use 3 cups pineapple and omit the papaya and mango for a refreshing pineapple salsa.
Success: Use a pizza cutter to easily cut the tortillas into wedges.
Do-Ahead: The chips can be made up to one week ahead of time. Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature.
