Cheesy Taco Pita Chips - Quick & Easy

Submitted by: KEN1939

Introduction

No need to bake, just microwave on high for 2 minutes per plate of chips for a low fat, low carb, low calorie snack.

The only pita bread I have found that is low in fat & carbs is Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Pita Bread. It is available at some Walmart Super Centers in front of the cake display or with the bread. It is, also, available online. The cheapest online price/shipping charge I have found is at Netrition.com.

Ingredients

    - 1 Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Pita Bread
    - Olive oil cooking spray
    - Spices of your choice. Recipe is basted on 1/4 tsp each of onion & garlic powders plus 1/8 tsp garlic salt & 1 tbl spoon of McCormick Cheesy Taco Seasoning Mix.

Directions

1. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a regular dinner plate & spray lightly with cooking spray.

2. Divide a single pita bread into 8 wedges (a pizza cutter works great for this) & tear wedges apart for 16 "chips" per pita.

3. Place 8 of the "chips" on the parchment paper/plate & spray lightly with cooking spray.

4. Sprinkle lightly with spices & microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until crisp.

5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 with the other chips.

Note: If you prefer to bake on an outdoor gas grill, set to direct low. Spread wedges on a cookie sheet. Prepare as above & bake for 6 Minutes.

Makes 1 16 chip serving.
