Homemade baked pita chips make a great pairing for this twist on guacamole. To make them, cut four pita pockets into 12 wedges each and toss with a bit of olive oil. Bake on a rimmed baking sheet in 350°F (180°C) oven until crisp and golden, about 8 minutes. Let cool, then store in an airtight container for up to a week.
