These are amazing. They are quick, inexpensive, and the easiest thing in the world to make. Only comment is that you must eat them while they are warm. If you wait too long they get a little too hard. Had this with some vanilla ice-cream. Thanks for the post.



Perfect end to our mexican-themed dinner last night- absolutely perfect!! I cut these into fourths (like triangles) and sooo easy & tasty. I've made "annie's fruit salsa and cinnamon chips" recipe from this site and these are waaaayyy easier and would be the perfect "dipping chip" for that recipe (which I'll use this recipe instead). If you like the "Cinnamon Toast Crunch" cereal-you are sure to love this b/c this is just a larger version of them!! Will make these often!!



What a fun, fast and easy recipe! I used kitchen scissors to cut my overlapped tortillas into strips. Just make sure you really watch the strips while you're frying them. They should just have a hint of a golden color and be slightly puffed. I overbrowned a couple of batches (they weren't even very dark) and had to throw them away because they had a burnt toast taste.
