What I Made Wednesday {Delicious Homemade Pita Chips}

Stacy's Pita Chips
Dear Stacy,
I do so love your pita chips. I love your hip commercials and print ads. What I'm not loving, lately, is the rising price of your product. I've been with you from your humble beginnings. I've dipped your chip in many a hummus, never to be let down, but I'm afraid the ol' mighty dollar forces us to part ways.

I'm a smart and resourceful girl, so I did the only thing I could do to protect my child's college fund, I made my own Pita Chips. These bleak economic times have caused many a heartache and our relationship has also fallen victim. I hope we can still be friends.

Lilly's Homemade Pita Chips

What You'll Need
My pita choice, available online

Small, Plain Pita Bread
Olive Oil
2 cookie sheets or oven trays

What You'll Do
1. Cut the pita in half. 2. Cut the half, in half. 3. Cut the quarter in half. 4. These pita breads are double-layered so peel them apart. (I keep some doubled.)
Lightly coat, do not soak, the cut-up pita chips in olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix it all up using your hands.
Divide the pita chips onto 2 trays. Make sure the pita chips don't overlap entirely.
Place in a pre-heated 350-degree F oven (177 C). After 8 minutes, toss the pita chips on the tray and bake for another 2-3 minutes, or until golden and crispy. (Dirty oven! Look away!)
What You'll Need to Know to Finish
Allow baked chips to cool on trays for 5-10 minutes.
These chips are absolutely delicious. I like that you are in control of the amount of salt that goes into the chip. My plan is to try a cinnamon and sugar version one day - YUM!

 And, if you're looking for a great dip to go along with this chip, try my White Bean Dip from this What I Made Wednesday, click here! So much tastier than hummus, in my opinion.

Oh yes, you do need to try the cinnamon ones. I want to hear how they are too. I love the Stacy's chips but they are so pricey! Thanks for the tutorial.

Liz @ Quirky Vistas said...

Glad to hear homemade is better. I'm wondering if you figured out the cost difference. The sure look good and cinnamon and sugar would be my first choice. Very nice.

Liz, such a great question!!!! I figured the cost difference to be half what the Stacy's Pita Chips would cost me for the same amount (but I didn't cost out labor). Totally worth it!!!

I love pita chips, and with as much has I eat they can get pretty expensive. Thanks for sharing with us how to make our own, I'll give it a try. Also thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday's Best!

Stacy's is actually owned by Pepsi Cola now. I wonder how interested they'd be in your letter! ;-)

Love the recipe, btw. I tried my own today, but I plan to follow yours next time.
