Has potential, but needs work. The lime tortillas on their own do not provide nearly enough flavor. If I made this again, I think I would add dried herbs, cayenne and garlic salt to the tortilla chip coating. I also recommend pulverizing the tortilla chips almost to a powder. Even in very small pieces, we found the tortilla chips uncomfortable to eat. I would also consider making a salsa or dipping sauce.
