Brown Rice Crackers…make your own, any flavor you like!

Rice Crackers with Chili Powder

On a recent trip to Trader Joe’s, I bought some brown rice tortillas. I was hoping they would be a nice change for a sandwich/roll-up. When my husband and I tried them later, the tortillas broke apart and the fillings fell out all over our plates. Maybe they would’ve worked better if we’d heated them on the stove or in the microwave, but I don’t like warm bread, personally. So, I had to find another use for them because I don’t like to waste food.

These crackers are pretty simple to make and you can use whatever spices you like best – chili powder, garlic, rosemary, lemon-pepper, cayenne, dill, basil, sesame seed, cinnamon and sugar,…. the list is endless! Let your imagination run free!

Rice Crackers with Rosemary and Garlic

I didn’t do a price comparison ounce for ounce, but they may be cheaper to make yourself than buy the bags of rice crackers at the grocery store. Plus, my husband liked that he could customize them with his favorite flavors! It will also work well with soft, gluten-free, corn tortillas. If they last long enough, they will store well in an airtight container. Our batches were gone by the end of the day!

Write to me and let me know what flavors you like best…
