after preparing a large bowl of fresh guacamole; I was faced with NO crackers or pita bread
I substituted whole wheat tortillas for the recipe below



4 whole wheat pita pockets
1/2 cup olive oil, more if needed or desired
1 - 2 tsp. granulated garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 tsp pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cut the pitas carefully in half so that you have 8 thin pita circles.  Cut each circle into 8 pizza-like wedges.

us a pizza cutter for even cuts

Arrange on foil lined baking sheet.

In small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.  Use a grill or pastry brush to lightly brush the seasoned oil evenly over each pita wedge.

Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes.  Keep an eye on the chips because they can get extra crispy very quickly.

Remove from the oven and serve with your favorite dip or eat alone as a snack.  Yield: 64 chips

to my oil, I added some taco seasoning with the garlic, salt and pepper
makes a good last minute dipper
