The first time I made these Pita Chips was for a wedding receptions I catered. I thought we would never be through making approximately 2,000 chips. I didn't know if I would ever want to look at another pita chip again as long as I lived.
Well, I made my Roasted Pepper Hummus, and all I could think about was how good those homemade pita chips would taste. What is so great about them is that they are so easy to make, and the different seasonings you can put on them are endless. You get 16 chips out of one pita bread pocket, and you can easily make as many as you want fresh.
I made half of them with sea salt, garlic powder, and dried cilantro and the other half, I added some kick to them with paprika. They are incredibly delicious!
Out Of The Oven Pita Chips
6 pita bread pockets
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried cilantro
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut each pita bread into 8 triangles. Place half the triangles on cookie sheet. In a small bowl, combine the oil, sea salt, garlic powder, and dried cilantro. Brush each triangle with oil mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for about 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Watch carefully, as they tend to burn easily! Place the other half of the triangles on cookie sheet. With the remainder of the oil mixture add the paprika, and brush each triangle. Follow baking instructions as above. Again, watch carefully not to burn.
