Today, Raising Dick and Jane would like to wish the Morton Salt Girl a happy 100th birthday! As many of you know I absolutely adore vintage marketing and this salt girl epitomizes it. Plus, how super cool is it that she has been around for 100 years now? That definitely says something about the company and the brand.
This last weekend, In honor of the salt girl, we decided to throw a dinner party and serve handmade salted pita chips along with other various other Mexican style foods. The salted pita chips were such a hit with our party guests that we decided to make that the focus of our post today and show you how we made them. Seriously, because it couldn’t be any easier!
3 TBS. Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Morton Coarse Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
dash of red pepper flakes
How I Made Them:
First, I preheated my oven to 400 degrees. Next, I cut the pita bread into 8th’s and placed the slices on a large cookie sheet.
After that, I mixed together my olive oil and spices in a small dish. Then I lightly brushed the olive oil mixture onto the pita slices.
Next, I baked the pita slices in the oven for 5 minutes at 400 degrees or until slightly browned.
Finally, I served them up with some red pepper style hummus and my guests loved them!
Remember that the seasonings may be altered dependent on taste. We like things kind of spicy in our house, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that everybody else does. It is also fun to try out new seasonings on the pita chips too, such as Parmesan or cinnamon and sugar or garlic and basil. Mmmm. .
What’s your favorite flavor of pita chips?
