    Pippy's Note:

    I think these are better than full-fat tortillas, and they cost about 30 cents to make. Try them with hummous, salsa, or any other dip in the entire world. I even eat them plain with some Red Hot or Tabasco sprinkled on.

      Yummy, easy and economical ~ you can't go wrong : ) I went with garlic and onion powder, kosher salt and pepper. I'm not sure why, but by 10 minutes, mine were almost too brown. Keep an eye on them the first time you make them. Will go great with the white bean dip I'm making. Thanks for posting. UPDATE: had much better luck reducing the oven temp to 300 and baking for 11-12 minutes.

      I served these with red lentil dal, and they were so wonderful! I've really been craving chips on my diet, and these really helped me out. Thanks so much for sharing!

      Easy to make and tasty...who can ask for more? I made these with garlic and onion powder and served them with guacamole. I was a little afraid that the garlic and onion powder would be too strong, but it turned out great. I might even used more next time. I suggest doubling the recipe because these were eaten very quickly. Yum!
