“I love making these! They are a great treat! I have made these for parties, for get-to-gethers and just plain lunch for myself. The low-calorie version is to spray the pita with Non-stick spray and season with Mrs Dash and then toast. These are party fare! Why not serve a basketful of each flavor of these seasoned chips at the coming hoildays? ;) Originally found on Land O' Lakes web site but as usual, have tweaked it a bit. Updated on 09/21/06 forgot to mention to melt the butter, thank you gruntlady.”
