Snack of Choice...for the Semi-Lazy

Lazy, lazy, lazy days for me. I've been going through a cycle of kitchen burn-out...or stressed-out. Not really sure which one at the moment. I have not cooked anything decent in awhile. Lately, when I get home, my first thought is "what do we have in the house that I can just heat up in five minutes." So, my kitchen has seen it's share of frozen pizzas, canned soup, and black beans and rice. Really...nothing interesting at all.

In the spirit of all that is lazy in the kitchen, I give you a recipe (as if it was really needed) for quick pita chips to dip into your store bought hummus. LOL!

Pita Chips (semi-homemade)

Leftover pita bread, cut into triangles
sea salt and pepper
olive oil

Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the pita triangles on a cookie sheet. Spray or drizzle on olive oil to both sides. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper (or any other seasoning you'd like to add...paprika, cumin, adobo). Place in the oven for about 10-15 minutes so it gets toasty (but not burned!). Eat after it's cooled a bit with your favorite dip. Easy!

Ha, I just made like four batches of hummus last night. We are having a Convention Party tonight and everyone is bring food based on a liberal stereotype (latte liberals, granola/vegan treehuggers, etc.) We're providing the champaigne (because we're so elite) and I made hummus because everyone knows liberals support Middle East terrorists. I was going to be really lazy and serve untoasted pita, but now you have shamed me into toasting my pita into chips. :)
