Last night, I made my own homemade pita chips for the first time. As I was chewing my first bite of crispy heaven, I thought to myself, "Why have I never made these before?" They were absolutely delicious! They are so easy to make, I think I'll be making a batch every week now.
Homemade Pita Chips
6 whole pita rounds
4 Tablespoons butter
4 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Cut each pita round into 4 wedges, and separate the layers into individual wedges. You will have 8 chips per pita round. Arrange the pita chips in a single layer onto large baking sheets, with the rough side up.
Melt the butter in a small sauce pan, then add the olive oil, garlic powder, and sea salt. Brush the butter mixture onto the pita wedges. Bake pita wedges for approximately one hour, or until the chips are crispy and just starting to turn a golden color.
Serve with salsa, bean dip, or just eat them plain. They're delicious either way!
