LIKE EVERYTHING THAT IS HOT.

MY REVIEW

Kudos to minliz64 for the crushed tortilla chip idea - it was awesome! (Note: we didn' bother with the egg either.) Consider baking these on foiled lined baking sheet to make clean-up easier (and lots quicker if you have guests.)

MY REVIEW

I doubled the recipe. I used crushed tortilla chips instead of corn flakes. You don't need the egg, the crumbs will stick to the filling.

VERY GOOD!
