making chips easy

I had no chips, but had a dip today. So, I cut up a pita pocket bread into 4's. Then split each one open. I salted oil in a deep pan, and dropped some of the pita cuts into the hot oil. When well browned, I turned them over. Then put on a paper towel in a bowl to drain, and salted again. They are so good. You can eat them like that, hot or cooled off. Or, you can proceed to dip them into your favorite dip now.

Sounds good! When I make mine, I prefer to bake them as I am watching my figure. I've never done it with pita-- what a great suggestion -- just tortilla chips and potatoes. I slice the potatoes very thin, or the tortillas into 1/4s like you said, then drizzle with oil. Spread evenly in one layer on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes at 400, flip, 5 more, flip.. etc. until they are crispy and light gold.

I'm with you, and would have baked them. But hubby loves fried only. It's great with the pita, give it a try. If you bake it, I would make sure that you oiled and seasoned it first.

Sounds delicous Margieanne, you should have youw own cooking show :) This does sound really good, I get tired of chips so this would be a welcome change for using dips which I do love to use. Have a great day :)

Hi Sugar, Oh this sounds very interesting and I sure will give this one a try when I have no chips as I do like pita pocket bread but never thought of having them this way so I appreciate reading your recipe and will give it a try.

I see you are still pumping out the great food ideas. I need to go through your posts and catch up on the ones that I missed while I was gone. I'll have even more catching up to do when I get back the next time.

I agree, she had so many good ones that I started a binder with her recipies and yours and a couple of others. I have tried most of them. I could publish the MYLOT cookbook. HMMMMMM lol

Sounds yummy! We make our own pita chips sometimes, by cutting the pita into wedges, brushing with some olive oil, and popping them into the oven. They are a really good snack if you spread a little olive pesto on them, and sprinkle with crumbled fetta before you bake them too :)

I like pita chips. I have also baked them. I have also made tortilla chips. Yummy. Haven't had much success with homemade potato chips.

You can also use tortilla shells. They are great fried. When my kids were home we fried them and topped them with cinnamon sugar. Nummy!
