I have made these both baked and fried. I won't lie, they are much better fried. However, in the interest of health I typically will bake them. They still come out crispy, although drier than frying. I have used other recipes, but the nice thing about this recipe is how easy it is to make. There isn't really any measuring and they are difficult to screw up. I highly recommend adding the beans.

  4. Fry until golden brown OR wrap in foil and cook for 15 min in oven (350 F).
  5. After they cool, you can top them with sour cream, guacamole, etc.
