Quick, easy and useful with all sort of the dips this recipe is super adaptable.

Ingredients[edit]

  • 1 Bag of Pita Bread pockets(buying day old doesn't hurt to keep costs down if you're making tons)
  • Olive Oil
  • Spices


Method[edit]

  • Cut the pita bread in half by slicing around the edge, you should have two circles, each with a rough inside and a smoother outside
  • Slice into triangles (or strips if you prefer) if you have a sharp pizza cutter I find stacking 3 or 4 of them and pushing through works well for speed cutting.
  • With someone helping you hopefully to speed things up, use pastry brushes to brush the rough side of the triangles with a healthy amount of olive oil, then lay on a baking sheet
  • Sprinkle chips with your chosen spices (see below)
  • Bake at 350 or using a broil setting until they're done. They turn golden brown

Yield[edit]

  • One bag of pita pockets = a fairly large bowl of chips

Serving Suggestions[edit]

  • With Tzatziki
  • With Taramasalata
  • As the foundation crispy bit for Chaat
  • With other tasty dips, they're great with a reasonably creamy Spinach Dip as well
  • On their own they're a tasty reasonably healthy snack, especially with whole grain pita.

Spice Suggestions[edit]

  • Good Salt
  • Fresh Ground pepper
  • I use a salt/garlic/pepper blend
  • Montreal Steak Spice
  • dried dill
  • Garam Masala (great if you're using these for Chaat or other indian type things)
