Southwest Chicken Pileup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sharbysyd

Chicken and veggies on top of a pita. I saw this recipe on the Biggest Loser Workout #2 video. This recipe can also be made vegetarian by skipping the chicken and sauteing the bean in the Mexican seasoning and garlic powder for a few minutes.
