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!!
These are just o.k.
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.
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.
These made a great snack for the kids and I. They were very quick and easy to make and tasted fabulous. We love cinnamon and sugar, so this was just our kind of recipe. These would make great "chips" for Annie's Fruit Salsa & Cinnamon Chips. Hmmm, think I'll try that one. Thanks a bunch Arrenia!!
Oh my, how good are these?! Had nothing better to do yesterday, as yet AGAIN, N.J. got another blast of winter in spring leaving us with five inches of snow. Just to think that two weeks ago, I was outside preparing my flower pots! Anyway, these were great Arrenia and as usual, I used my Fry Daddy which made the job go very quickly. Thanks so much!
These were delicious. I made these for a dinner party last night early in the day and stored them in airtight containers before servings in the evening. They were nice and crispy and everyone loved them, however, they were very crumbly and messy and I would recommend you use these for outside eating, especially if some of the guests are children. I live in AZ and our summers are too hot to eat outdoors, so we ate inside and the kids made a mess on the floor. Also, fry these in a deep fryer. I do have one, but I decided to just heat some oil in a pan and do it that way. It took about 45 minutes to make a double batch of these and after such a long period of time, the oil really started to irritate my eyes. They were irritated for the rest of the day. Next time, I will definately use my deep fryer. Try these for a fun dessert!
Excellent dessert to finish off a mexican meal. And easy to make too. We don't use regular sugar very often, so I used Splenda and it was wonderful. My kids loved them, and my very picky 8 year old couldn't stop eating them! I think I'll serve mexican food at my next party just so I can have these! Thanks!
