      This made for a very yummy lunch. If you are looking for a step above the usual sandwich AND you want to include some healthy veggies, this would be a great choice! I am so glad that I didn't skip using the jicama because it gave the stuffed pitas a delightful crunch and added a slight sweetness. I could see using the base of this recipe as a springboard for other meat/veggie combos. Great lemon butter sauce, too.
