Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
Lightly brush each tortilla with oil and spinkle over chilli and salt to taste.
Arrange the tortillas, single layer on baking trays and bake for 5 minutes. Flip the tortillas and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes or until the tortillas are lightly brown and very crisp.
I made this with whole wheat tortillas and found that 5 minutes each side was too long, but then I baked them one-by-one. At 200° 3 minutes was sufficient for each side. My husband loved them. Thank you so much for the recipe. - 05 Dec 2015
