  1. Cut each tortilla into six wedges; place on ungreased baking sheets. Spritz with cooking spray. Combine the chili powder, cumin and salt; sprinkle over wedges. Bake at 425° for 5-8 minutes or just until edges begin to brown.
  2. For salsa, place the tomatillos, onion, jalapeno and garlic in a single layer in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 14-17 minutes or until tender and lightly browned, stirring once. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Transfer to a food processor; add the cilantro, lime juice and salt. Cover and process until coarsely chopped. Stir in mango. Refrigerate until serving. Serve with chips. Yield: 5 dozen (2-1/2 cups salsa).
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
