Easy Roasted Red Pepper-Feta Dip with Garlic "Chips"

We love to big and small ways. Some parties beg for exquisite dishes from drinks and hors d'oeurves right on down to dessert. Most of the time, however, it is a family get together or just friends hanging out for an evening or before going out to dinner. For those times, we want it super easy.
Here is a very easy and tasty dipping chip. When you buy a package of pitas, you can make sandwiches OR some of these for snacking or entertaining.
2 pita breads
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1. Heat oven to 350ยบ F.

2. Using a small knife or kitchen scissors, cut along circumference of each pita bread to remove folded edge.
3. Combine oil and garlic in a bowl.
4. Brush each pita round with the oil and garlic mixture.
5. Stack the rounds and then cut into 8 wedges.
6. Arrange wedges in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until chips are golden brown.Makes 32 chips, 8 chips per serving.

Need something to serve with this?
1 12-oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained and coarsely chopped
1 clove of garlic
1/8 cup olive oil
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Puree 1st 4 ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Cover and chill 2 hours...serve!

Now sit back and enjoy your company!
