Could you rePITA that please?

Did you say you were hungry? You did...oh okay well here is an answer to your snack plea...Homemade pita chips.

My friend introduced me to these right after I had Case. I inhaled them in record time. I have been playing with the recipe ever since. Sometimes I change up the spices. Sometimes I cook them longer or shorter depending if I am in a crunchy or chewy mood. I have found my favorite spice combo, so that is what I will share today.

Take this recipe's basics and then experiment!!!

PS I LOVE these with homemade deli sandwiches. I feel so fancy.

Homemade Pita Chips

1 package of pitas
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp dried basil
pepper to taste ( I like a lot)

Preheat oven to 400. Cut pitas like you would a pizza, into triangular shapes. Mix oil, garlic salt, basil, and pepper in small bowl. Place pita pieces on a cooking sheet. Brush oil mixture over pitas ( you will probably have to keep mixing oil and spices together), reserve a little. Make sure to coat them well.

Put in oven. 6-7 minutes for chewier and 8-10 for crunchier. Flip chips over and brush reserve oil over the other side.

Amazing! Pita chips are wonderful, I never considered making them myself! I'm irritated because I can never find pita bread in my local supermarket, I have to go all the way to CC.
