Default Super Bowl Snack Idea

I live in a family of tortilla chip aficianados, though my dear husband has just crossed into the "obese" BMI category and my teenage son could stand to make healthier food choices. I've done this recipe a few times now and it seems to go over pretty well:

Take a package of whole wheat pita bread (you can use other kinds if you prefer; I just bought onion and am going to try that this weekend). Cut the pitas into triangles or strips and separate the layers. Place on a cookie sheet and spray with olive oil (I use a mister), then season with a pinch of kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper, or oregano...or any combination that sounds good to you. Bake at 350 till just brown and crispy.

These are great with salsa, hummus, or any other kind of dip that you prefer. They seem more satisfying than tortilla chips to me, are much healthier, and are a lot less expensive than the pita chips in stores.

I have used the "Pam" olive oil version and it's okay...just more chemicals than the olive oil in a mister.

If anyone has any ideas to tweak this, I would love to hear some new ideas!
