The Basics - Making Pita Chips
Pita Chips are so easy to make, which makes me wonder why "already-made" pita chips bought in the store can run close to $5.
Buy 1 package of pita bread (the very thin kind).
Take 2 pitas out of the package and separate each pita in half (as seen in the picture above)(you should have 4 pita halves).
Melt 1/4 cup butter (you may use olive oil instead).
Brush the butter on both sides of each pita-half.
Sprinkle with garlic salt or just plain sea salt.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 5 minutes.
Flip each pita half and bake for another 5 minutes.
Allow to cool and then break up into smaller pieces.
VARIATIONS: Experiment with different flavors - before you spread the melted butter - try adding some dried herbs - be creative.
examples: Italian: basil, oregano & garlic salt
lemon pepper and dill
Cilantro & lime juice for dipping in salsa
try a sweet one: cinnamon and brown sugar sprinkled on top instead of salt & then dip in yogurt.
