  1. These sound delicious I definitely think I will have to hunt down some millet flour and give them a try, although maybe with less chili for my sone who doesn’t eat anything remotely spicy. Although guess if I keep it in, there’s all the more for me….thanks for sharing with us at Fiesta Friday!
