    1. These sadly didn’t turn out at all. I used the ingredients it called for in correct amounts and flattened each tortilla to 6”. They were whisper thin until you started cooking them, then they started puffing up and no way you could cook one 2 minutes, even with my heat on 2 of 10! They were more like a cheesy flour tortilla that was fried. Maybe a hair crisp at edges. No idea how you got yours to look like that after cooking. Flavor was good though, I don’t think it’s worth the trouble. So I’m still on the lookout for something to give me that fried corn tortilla crunch.

      1. That’s really strange. I have made these several times and they never puff up. What brand of protein powder did you use?
