If you’re wondering how to make pita chips in your air fryer, look no further and say hello to your new favorite at-home snack!

I love anything starchy that serves as a vehicle for anything dip-y. There, I said it. I am a snack queen, and will take any opportunity to indulge in something crunchy and salty, especially if it can hold a good scoop of somethin’ somethin’.

For this recipe, my favorite dips are tzatziki, hummus, and melitzanosalata, which is a Greek eggplant dip.

Homemade pita chips are actually a lot easier to make than you may think. They are easy in the oven, and they are just as easy in the air fryer.

Follow these steps and you will be snacking in no time:

Step 1: Cut your pita pockets into eight triangles.

Step 2: Toss the pitas in olive oil until evenly coated.
