Pita chips (or tortilla chips)

I will not pay $4.99 for a small bag of pita chips! Not when I can get a 6 pack of pitas for $0.89 or sometimes 2/$1.00 from almost any of the Asian or Polish markets around here! We only ever use 2 at a time so we usually make the rest into chips instead of letting the bag sit in the freezer forever. You can also make tortilla chips exactly the same way.

Here's what you need and how you do it!

  • Pitas ( I had 4 left out of a bag of 6)
  • Olive oil
  • Italian seasoning
  • Romano cheese (Parmesan is what I usually have)
  • Sea salt
  • Baking pans
  • Pizza roller (you can use a knife or scissors if you don't have one)
  • Pastry brush (or a plastic bag over your hand)
Start by turning your oven to 400. Assembling your chips won't take very long so you want the oven ready for them.

Brush each pita with oil, sprinkle with toppings, cut each into 8 and arrange on pans so none overlap. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes. Eat with hummus or on their own.

See, quick and easy!

*If you want sweet stuff brush the pitas with oil and sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar instead. Make a quick dipping sauce by mixing a tablespoon of cream, milk or soy milk with half a cup of icing sugar.
