"These were great but I used smoked paprika, more like a teaspoon of sugar & chipotle chili powder in place of cayenne & regular chili powder."

"Followed recipe exactly. Did not really taste like barbecue chips. My husband said it had too much Paprika in it. Will continue looking for another barbecue chip recipe. This is not it."
