This was delicious...I made this and another taco salad for DH and I for our lunches today (cut them down) and this was a great hit. I used taco seasoning recipe from this site, and recipe#273276#273276 for the salsa (I drained part of the liquid from the salsa) and this was very good. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2014. P.S. I topped with some avocado and a sprinkle of green onions.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a medium skillet, brown ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain off excess fat. Add water and 1 tsp taco seasoning to the beef and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Cut each pita into 8 wedges and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 7 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. While the beef is cooling, combine the remaining taco seasoning, cream cheese, sour cream and salsa in a small bowl. Mix well. Divide and spread this mixture evenly on 2 small plates.
  5. Spoon a portion of the beef over the sour cream mixture, and top each with half the lettuce, tomato and cheddar cheese.
  6. Place 8 baked pita wedges on each plate. Serve and enjoy!
