Stephanie's Once Only Recipes: Pita bread 'chips'

Nothing could be easier than these delicious 'chips', Yes, I know chips are fries where I come from, but I'm not talking about fried anything here! No, these are similar to nacho chips without the Mexican connotations, or even the need for a hot chili sauce - come to think of it, why not? You'll need to turn on the oven, but the weather is cooling down now, so no excuse ... >>>

12 pita bread pockets (pan de pita, easily available)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (pimienta seca molida)
1 teaspoon garlic salt (sal de ajo)
1/2 teaspoon dried basil (albahaca, look in dried herbs sections)
1 teaspoon dried chervil (perifollo, at better supermarkets)
1. Preheat oven to 200º C.
2. Cut each pita bread into 8 triangles. Place triangles on lined baking sheet.
3. In a small bowl, combine the oil, pepper, salt, basil and chervil. Brush each triangle with oil mixture.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Watch carefully, as they tend to burn easily!
