Recipe by Manami

These are wonderful! These are perfect for the coming holidays! We made them with fresh ingredients (if possible) and low-fat ingredients. Found this on Food and Family, Holiday 2007 edition. I had these for the "Cooking Club" and this way the resident's could prepare and then eat their "sandwichito" pitas. Of course, they had help - there were two teachers and myself. These we prepared for the other residents as well. Diet Exchange: 1/2 Starch, 1 Meat (VL), 1/2 Fat
