SO HOW'D IT GO?

If you want them crispier use more oil I think. & I cooked mine for 20 min at 460 F before they got crispy, but anyway, these are great, so good! Tyvm!  ;D

These are so good!!
Mine never got very crunchy, but maybe they had too much oil on them... I don't know.

These were simple, quick + tasty. We were going to a music festival and I wanted to have some healthy snacks, so along with trail mix, crackers and hummus, this went really well!

this is my new favorite snack!! for spices i use chili powder, paprika, a little cayenne pepper, garam masala, black pepper, and a little salt.

Yes you do need to bake for about an hour.

I made these the other night, and even though I didn't cook them all until they were hard, it was delicious. next time, I'm going to double the amount because I ate it all once i pulled them out.

Yay these are awesome-- I need to make them in bulk! And also a less spicy version for the kiddos!

I made these twice. The first time I cooked them for about a half of an hour so they turned out mostly soft, with a little bit of crunchiness. The second time I made them I cooked them for an hour or so until they were very crunchy. I liked them better when they were cooked longer.

They reminded my of spicy peanuts (only way lower in calories and fat!) rather than chips.

I followed the recipe and did not like the end product.  Too salty, not enough flavor, some were crunchy, some burnt, some mushy.  I guess this wasn't my kind of snack.

Wow. I am a picky eater but found these amazing. if i could have convinced my 3 yr old to try them i know he would have loved them. i'll try harder in the future. this is going to be a weekly staple in my house. healthy and addictive. All i used seasoning wise was 1 tbsp chili powder and when they were done salt to taste. i cooked at 400 F and for 25 minutes. i stirred twice. 30  minutes would have made them extra crunchy but i liked that they were chewy in the middle.

this recipe is so simple and delicious!
I like having it with rice for dinner with a nice pita bread on the side.
It's also good as a movie watching snack or a munchies snack ;)
