If you’ve got olive oil and a bag of stale pita bread – you’ve got pita chips. Seriously, the bread can practically be stiff as a board and still make great chips. These are not as greasy as the storebought variety, but you can make them that way if you want by just dousing them with more olive oil. These are great with hummus, obvs, but they are also good with all kinds of dips and spreads.

Pita Chips, Eight Servings

1 bag of stale pita bread

½ c. olive oil

Spices to taste: I like garlic powder, Old Bay Seasoning and Cajun seasoning together; but just plain sea salt is good too.

Preheat the oven to 300, use convection if you have it. Cut each round of bread into eighths and pull them apart into their two halves. Put them in a bowl. Mix the olive oil and seasonings together. Drizzle the bread with the olive oil, turning until all the pieces are coated.


Spread them out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until dry and lightly browned.


Serve warm or cool and store in ziplock bags. Makes about 80 chips.
