Pita chips make the perfect delivery device for savory dips and spreads. Don’t waste your money or your taste buds on packaged pita chips, make your own. Simply drizzle pita wedges with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and your favorite spice. Bake until browned and you’ll have crispy pita chips, perfect for dipping into Lemon Hummus or creamy Greek Yogurt and Feta Dip.
