Our favorite household snack? Hummus and pita chips. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at making pita chips at home. Seeing as it was my first attempt at making these crispy chips, I kept it simple. I didn’t want to admit defeat when it was only a poor choice of seasoning that turned this experiment into a disaster.
With the oven pre-heated, I sliced pita bread into triangles, toss them in avocado oil and added a dash of sea salt. When the timer beeped, I opened the oven to a tray of warm, crispy pita chips. I had to bat Ian’s hand away a few times so I could take these photos before he ate the whole tray full! I guess that means they were a success, right?!
While the convenience of buying a bag of pita chips at the store is tempting, it’s nice to have control over your own seasoning and snack on the warm crisps right out of the oven! Next time I’m planning on being more adventurous and try adding Cajon spice for a bit of heat.
