Crunchy Pita Chips

You’re never far from a delicious, healthier than chips snack that will satisfy your crunch craving if you keep a package of pita bread in your pantry. Pita bread quickly transforms into a wonderful snack that you can decide how to flavor based on your mood or what you’re serving it with.

We used cumin and coriander in this recipe for a Middle Eastern taste, but chili pepper, cayenne, or just salt are other equally tasty possibilities. Experiment!

Another aspect of pita chip snacks that you’ll love – the price. A pack of six loaves will make a bowlful of chips and costs and in most areas will only set you back $1.50 or less!
