    Manami's Note:

    I love making these! They are a great treat! I have made these for parties, for get-to-gethers and just plain lunch for myself. The low-calorie version is to spray the pita with Non-stick spray and season with Mrs Dash and then toast. These are party fare! Why not serve a basketful of each flavor of these seasoned chips at the coming hoildays? ;) Originally found on Land O' Lakes web site but as usual, have tweaked it a bit. Updated on 09/21/06 forgot to mention to melt the butter, thank you gruntlady.

      So far I have tried the "Italian Variation" but will try the others in the future. Each pita wedge naturally split into a thick piece and a thin piece. I baked the thin pieces for 6 minutes on each side, and the thick pieces I had to turn over again and bake for another 6 minutes (total 18 minutes) to get them brown and crispy. I've bought commercial pita chips in the past and was extremely disappointed. These are so much better.
