Homemade Pita Chips & Parmesan Jalapeno Dip


Homemade Pita Chips

This recipe for homemade pita chips & parmesan jalapeño dip is my go-to for get togethers.. It is fast, easy, fairly affordable and all homemade. This combination is a huge crowd pleaser.

Let’s start with the pita chips. You can flavor them however you like and I encourage you to experiment with different seasonings and flavors that you like. Usually, I just stick with salt and some garlic powder then offer several dips to kick up the flavor. I have spread pesto on them as well. This is totally up to you.

Homemade Pita Chips

2 Packages of Pita Bread (white or whole wheat)
Olive Oil
Garlic Powder

  1. Brush olive oil on a piece of pita to coat.
  2. Sprinkle seasonings to cover. Using a pizza cutter (this is the easiest method, knife will work just the same), cut each piece of pita into 8ths.
  3. Arrange closely but flat on a baking sheet.

Bake 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until brown

Now onto the dip! It’s best to make this dip the night before as giving the flavors time to mix together really improves the taste. I have used both canned and fresh jalapenos and really don’t see much of a difference since it is mainly used to offset the creaminess. Use the amount of jalapenos to your preference of spiciness. Kick this up with hotter peppers.

Parmesan Jalapeno Dip

2 Packages of Cream Cheese
1C Mayonnaise
1C Parmesan Cheese
2 Cans Jalapeno Peppers (3-4 Fresh Peppers)

  1. Mix the cream cheese and mayo.
  2. Add in the chopped, de-seeded peppers, sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
  3. Store in the fridge overnight. Set out to room temperature, stir and enjoy!

  1. I’ll check it out. Issue w/me is that since I don’t eat mayo AT ALL, I don’t stock it at home. Same w/peanut butter. Thanks!

    1. I am that way with applesauce! I have one recipe that uses it so I just buy the smallest, cheapest jar I can find.

  2. Yummmm, good call!!!! These look delicious, I like the pesto idea…maybe with some artichoke/asiago spread?
