Pita Chips...

Here's a great use for left over pitas... or a quick idea for some easy chips to go along with hummus and dips. Simply take your pitas, slice them in half, peel the pocket into 2 pieces, brush on some olive oil or grape seed oil, then sprinkle your sea salt & garlic powder on them and cut them into triangles. Heat your oven to 350 and lay them on a cookie sheet, then bake for 10- 15 minutes depending on how crispy you like them (and how thick you pitas are). You can add different spices like cumin or dried herbs or even cinnamon & sugar for a sweet treat!
Allergies: this is a great way to tailor your snacks to your specific needs. If you have allergies or are avoiding certain ingredients, you can find pitas or tortillas to your specifications and then make these to meet all your food needs!

Stay tuned for another hummus recipe, as well as a recipe for a Persian dip, Tzatziki, to serve along side your homemade pita chips!
