Avocado Salsa with Homemade Pita Chips

This Avocado Salsa is delicious, fresh, and flavorful and goes as an appetizer or just as a snack near some pita bread chips or nachos. I usually like to make my pita bread chips as I find them easy to make and love the idea of serving freshly made dishes, from beginning to end.

We were first introduced to this avocado salsa by some dear friends who joined us for a cooking session at our home. I instantly fell in love with it and thought of sharing it with you. I hope you give it a try too! Let me know your thoughts 🙂

How to make pita bread chips

To prepare the pita bread chips, start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). In a small bowl, mix oil with paprika. Then, carefully separate each pita bread into two thin rounds. Slice the pitas into triangles, adjusting the size to your preference.

Place the pita chips on a baking sheet in a single layer. Brush them with the oil and paprika mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and any additional spices you prefer for extra flavor.

Bake the chips for 2-5 minutes, or until they are crisp and lightly browned. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

Next, in a large frying pan, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat. Add red onion and ginger, cooking until they are soft and fragrant. Stir in the corn kernels and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Season the mixture with salt and pepper, then remove it from the heat and allow it to cool.

In a medium salad bowl, combine avocado with the remaining vegetables. Add the cooled corn mixture, lime juice, cilantro or parsley, and additional salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together well.

Serve the vegetable salad with the homemade pita chips for a delicious and satisfying snack or appetizer.
