I’ve been insanely busy but now I’m getting some control of my time and I’m going to try to be a lot more active on here than I used to be. With quarantine, I know a lot of our eating habits have been whack, but ideally, we should try to make healthier swaps when we can and today I’m going to be showing yall how insanely easy it is to make these pita chips.
For the most basic version, all you need are 2 ingredients:
-Pita bread (Money-saving Tip- don’t be afraid to buy the older pita bread off the sale rack! Your making chips, so as long as it’s not molded, it’s fine.)
1. Cut the pita bread up like you would a pizza or pie, making 8 pieces. So four cuts.
2. You can either microwave them for 1 1/2 minutes or preheat your oven to about 350 and bake about 4 minutes or until golden.
3. Season with a pinch of salt.
You can serve these with a variety of dips like hummus, guac, salsa etc, or just by themselves. I’ve seen people season pita chips with cinnamon and sugar, garlic and parmesan, garlic and herbs, cheese, caramel, honey, paprika, bbq seasoning, etc. Using something like olive oil or coconut oil to drizzle over the pita bread before you put them in the microwave or oven helps the seasonings stick.
As far as the heat factor, if you use thinner pitas, heat the oven to about 350-375ºF (about 176-190º C). For thicker pitas or flatbreads like naan, raise heat to between 400 to 425º F (about 205-218º C). Let them cool before you store/eat them so they get crispier and you can keep it in an airtight container for a few days.
Enjoy! Comment below if there’d anything you’d like me to post about.
