This is a good recipe. Different. I used whole wheat pitas and used green bell peppers instead of habaneros. The yogurt made it special. Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl combine yogurt and two-thirds of the garlic; season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the reamining garlic, the habanero chile and cumin; cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  5. Add the beef and cook, breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
  6. On a baking sheet, top each pita with a quarter of the beef mixture and bake until crisp, about 8 minutes. Serve with the garlic yogurt.
