    I don't have the patience to fry tortillas. I just fire up the double ovens, spray the tortillas with butter flavored Pam (on both sides) and put them in the oven, turning once.  -  04 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are great--to make them healthier, I sprayed them with butter-flavored cooking spray and baked them at 425 until they started to brown--wonderful crunch!  -  05 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I BAKED THESE INSTEAD OF FRYING...LOW FAT AND TASTY  -  10 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
