sorry for that lapse.
and no, I haven't been all about menu planning either! a little, but not all the way there. some things just take me a wee bit more time!
thought I'd hop on and show you just how easy (and delicious) it is to make your very own pita chips for around 2 bucks plus a few pantry staples.
First you need pita! I buy whole wheat small rounds at our grocery store. They're pretty thin which I like b/c I peel the two sides apart and they make for nice crispy chips!
Here's what else you need: olive oil and kosher salt. You could certainly get adventurous and season these up with whatever you'd like. I'm pretty traditional on the seasoning b/c I like to dip them in hummus or scatter them on my salad like a crouton!
Okay, gather your ingredients...
then peel open your pitas and lay them on a big cookie sheet. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Brush the pitas with some olive oil then sprinkle them with kosher salt- you don't need much and they don't need to be sopping wet with oil. A light brush and a light sprinkle will do ya!
Next I cut them up with my kitchen shears- oh how I love my kitchen shears! You could also tear them into bite size/dippable size chips.
Scatter them on the pan and pop them in the oven for about 8 minutes.
Find your favorite dip... here are my two favorites:
