  6. Add the tinned tomatoes and kidney beans, stir to combine then simmer for 10-12 minutes.

  7. While the beans are simmering, turn the oven to 180°C fan forced. Line 3 baking trays with paper. Spray the tortillas with oil and sprinkle with garlic powder and paprika. Using kitchen scissors cut each tortilla into 10 pieces and arrange on baking trays.
