    NoeleenCleary's Note:

    My family used to call this "Cha-Ching Chimi's". They're pretty darn good if I do say so myself. Hope you all enjoy, too. Correction submitted: I incorrectly posted the amount of crushed red pepper flakes. A pinch, NOT 1/4 tsp. Sorry!

      We thought these were really good. Made them as written except used PAM spray in place of the Olive Oil. Served with Pico De Gallo, guacomole, shredded lettuce and sour cream as garnish.....YUM!
