I love these crunchy little gems in my tossed salad in place of croutons.
They are so easy to make. I used canned beans. Just rinse them and then dry on paper towels as they will not crisp up if wet. Put the beans on a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. Dribble a bit of oil over the beans with whatever spices you like. I used salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until they reach the crispness you want. After 15 minutes, I checked them every 5 minutes.
They are also great just to nibble on with a glass of icy Chardonnay (so I am told).
