Pita Chips

20 Sep

Pita chips have become a staple in our house. We used to buy them, but when we couldn’t find them in the store anymore, we decided to make our own! So a bag of simple pita bread (which I will someday attempt to make from scratch) becomes a yummy snack that can be eaten by itself (what my hubby prefers) or dipped in hummus (what I prefer). Through trial and error, I found a great way to cut the pita bread to give you decent sized chips. Step by step instructions are included below, cause I’m nice like that. : )

We usually make half of the chips savory and half of the chips sweet. One batch is brushed with olive oil and salt and the other is brushed with melted butter and some cinnamon sugar. Here are the easy breezy instructions for cutting perfect sized chips:

1. Cut the pita bread in half (kitchen scissors work great!)

2. Take a half and cut down the middle.

3. Cut the right piece into three rectangular pieces, and the other piece into four triangles.

Easy as that! Now follow the directions below and you’ll be eating tasty pita chips in no time!

Pita Chips

1 bag of pita bread
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon sugar

Cut the pita bread into pieces. (as shown above or however your heart desires) Combine either oil and salt or butter and cinnamon sugar and brush the mixture on each side of the chip. Arrange chips on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Flip the chips halfway through baking so they bake evenly. Bake longer if you like extra crunchy chips.

*The beauty of this recipe is you can adapt it to whatever you like! Feel free to experiment with different spices and flavors!
