My take on this Mid East staple. My man says the locals in arena … ate a lot of it regularly. ..like every meal? My dear friend taught me how she made it in a pan. So this is our "joint" recipe! Although it says pan fried in the intro it's more like grilled on the stove. leftover pitas become a nice snack. Yep that new rage, trendy sensation… pita chips!!!! It's a healthy option too
