"Once you try this you'll never buy the expensive store bought version again. If you're careful with the chips you buy, you can make this gluten-free, and maybe even sugar-free. The secret is the coconut oil - please use the best you can afford, as it will affect the taste. I use a cold-pressed virgin coconut oil. Yum! YIELD IS ABOUT ONE CUP."
