Directions for Chips

1) Warm oil in a large pan. The more oil you use, the faster and more even the fry….but less healthy. I used 4 tablespoons of Coconut Oil

2) Place pasta para duros in oil, when pasta begins to puff toss. Allow to puff and turn golden brown

3) Remove and place on paper towel. Sprinkle with chili powder.

HEALTHIER Method! You can microwave the Pasta para Duros in the microwave for 30 seconds and they will puff up the same. The flavor is very similar, but much healthier. The only downside is that the chili powder will not stick.
