    Great way to use up extra corn tortillas! I upped the cayenne a bit to 1/4t.

    Easy to make and taste good. We all enjoyed this spicy chip with a touch of sweetness for a change. It’s great for a quick snack.

    <p>These were a little flat on flavor...if I made something similar, I would punch it up a little.</p>Also, I didn't care for the corn tortillas - I think wheat would have been better.

    The corn tortillas we used might have been to thick, however these were just not to our liking. We tried dip with these and they were still not that good.

    I apologize, but this was simply disgusting. I don't think it's necessary to say much more than that. However, thanks for all the delicious recipes you've provided for all of us to try and enjoy.

    Even better than the cooking spray is the roll-on. Try it.
