Spiced Pita Chips

Servings: 12

These chips, excerpted from the cookbook The Food You Crave, are the kind of snack that you just can’t stop eating. They are great on their own, but even better for dipping.

Read Ellie’s article Skinny Dipping for three great dip recipes to go along with these chips.


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 6 whole-wheat pita breads, cut into 8 wedges each
