"These are not only easy they are super crisp and tasty. I did not use the butter. Instead I used olive oil. And I made them spicy by adding some of my favorite spices. Keep and eye on them as they will burn very quickly. I'd like to suggest lowering the heat to 375. They are heavy enough to hold heavier dips.

Very Nice Recipe.
