The Best Chips? Pita Chips Made At Home!

If you like crisp and crunchy pita chips as an alternative to potato chips, you’ll love the home-made variety— unless, of course, you prefer to just stop and pick up a box or a bag of gourmet pita chips at your local middle-eastern store (and pay big bucks for what will vanish into thin air in no time!).

But if you don’t mind the little time and effort that it would take to make them at home, let me assure you, you will not regret it!  Here’s what I do:
  • Buy a bag of fresh pitas from your local middle-eastern bakery
  • Cut them up into halves and halves again to make small triangles
  • Open them up inside out so that each piece becomes two
  • Heat up your oil in a nice flat-bottomed wok
  • Fry your pita pieces, a few at a time, turning once
  • Drain them out onto paper towels
  • Sprinkle with anything from salt, pepper, chili powder or even parmesan cheese
  • Serve with anything at all from hummus to a cheesy dip or a yogurt dip

What could be simpler than that?  And what could be more satisfying?  Mmmmm! Mmmm! Mmm! Check out these pictures from the last time I made some.
