Pita chips are perfect accompaniment to dips, especially if they are made from homemade whole wheat pita bread. You cannot ask for a better appetizer to entertain your guests. Remember how we love munching on fried packaged chips while watching a movie or on a game night. Well these are the same, only they are yummier and a lot healthier! These are baked and made from whole wheat too so they get added bonus points. You can devour a big bowl without any guilt.
Pita chips are made by baking already baked pita bread in oven. Extra virgin olive oil,salt and hint of red chili powder makes these crispy and crunchy yeasty pita chips even more delish. They are perfect for enjoying hummus, muhammara, green goodness coriander hummus, baba ganoush or any other dip for that matter.
Pita chips are an amazing snack food for game night, movie night or for entertaining guests. It can be made in advance and stored in air tight container but tastes best when just out of oven. Honestly whenever I make a batch, it vanishes in minutes and usually there's nothing left to store.
