How To Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Using a clover-shaped cookie cutter, cut shamrocks out of each tortilla. Try to make your cuts as close to the edge as possible so there are minimal scraps left over; you should be able to get about 9 shamrocks out of each tortilla.
  3. Arrange the shamrocks in a single layer on a baking sheet. Spray them lightly with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  5. Serve with guacamole or cheese dip.
