Save yourself a couple of bucks and make perfectly spiced chips to accompany any dip you're making or cheese you're serving with homemade pita chips. They take no time, and are a lot less fattening as well. These chips have a sprinkle of smoked salt, but you can use any dried herb or spice that will match your dip or cheese - chili powder for guacamole, cumin for hummus, oregano for onion dip, or rosemary for blue cheese. Let the flavor combinations go wild!

Ingredients

  • 2 whole pitas
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Salt, recipe follows

Preparation

For Pita Chips:

  1. Turn oven setting to broiler (on low, if possible). Cover a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Cut the pitas in half, pile on top of each other and cut in half again. Cut each quarter in half to make triangles. Carefully pull each triangle apart at the 'seam.' Lay on the baking sheet and spray with pita with cooking spray. Sprinkle with smoked salt.
  2. Broil pita for 2-3 minutes, checking often so they don't burn. Serve with your favorite dip or cheese

For Smoked Salt:

  1. In a small bowl, mix 3/4 cup coarse sea salt and 1 Tbsp liquid smoke. Lay on a baking sheet to dry for 24-48 hours.
