How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 350°. Coat a nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray. In a bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. In a large bowl, toss the tortilla strips with the apple jelly and the cinnamon sugar. Spread the strips on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for about 20 minutes, tossing occasionally, until golden. Let cool on the baking sheet.
VARIATION:In a nonreactive saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons apple jelly with 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1/2 teaspoon tabasco over moderate heat. Toss the tortilla strips with the glaze and bake as directed above. (One cup contains 127 calories, 2 grams of fat and .2 grams of saturated fat.)
