Pita Bread Sandwiches

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Polly W

When my girls were young, they could not eat a taco without breaking the shell and having a mess! I started making them pita bread sandwiches and they loved them. Adults like them also. Very easy and a quick meal on weekdays when time is short.

Easy and fun to put together and enjoyed by all, not overly spicy which the DM thanks you for. I served with, diced tomatoe, cucumber, shredded cheese, carrot and lettuce and Paul Newmans Ranch Dressing. I also made a half recipe but used 300g of meat as that was what was in the package (220g was required). Thank you pollyw, made for Recipe Swap #20 September, 2008.
