Zesty Pita Chips
If you're trying to snack healthier these days, give Katina Tanner's recipe a try. Her crispy pita wedges are a low-sodium substitute for salty commercial chips, and their zippy seasoning is a fun alternative to creamy dips. She bakes batches of her satisfying nibbles in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 4 pita breads (6 inches), split
- In a small bowl, combine the Italian seasoning, paprika and garlic powder. Cut each pita half into six pieces; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Spray both sides of wedges with cooking spray; sprinkle wedges with seasoning mixture.
- Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through baking time. Cool on wire racks.
