“These were served as an appetizer at a Mexican-themed buffet during a bridal shower for a niece and her husband-to-be. The recipe was requested by several, and the few leftovers were eagerly carried home by the last guests.”
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 teaspoons water
1/4 cup brown sugar
6 whole wheat flour tortillas
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Combine butter and water in a small, microwave-safe bowl and heat until butter is melted. Add brown sugar and stir until smooth. Spread equal amounts of butter/sugar mixture over tortillas, leaving a 1/4-inch border near edges.
3. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. Lightly sprinkle wedges with cayenne. Arrange tortilla wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
4. Bake 7–9 minutes or until sugar mixture is bubbly and chips feel firm. Let cool on wire racks. Store in a closed container.
