Homemade Pita Chips with Red Pepper Dip

Photo: Brian Woodcock; Styling: Cindy Barr

These guiltless Homemade Pita Chips with Red Pepper Dip are full of flavor and oh-so-easy to make. We bake our pita wedges until they're crisp, and then blend together roasted red bell peppers with almonds and other high-flavor ingredients. The results are a healthy, full-flavored snack.

Yield: Serves 8 (serving size: 8 chips and about 3 tablespoons dip)
