quick veggie mexican pitas

really? you are probably like what is this girl thinking? i’ve never seen mexican and pita go together. Or maybe you have?

anywho. i was hungry one evening and had some veggies that need to be cooked before they went bad, and I had initially thought i had some whole wheat tortilla wraps but I was mistaken. however, i improvised and found some whole wheat pita in the freezer and decided to put it to use.


1/2 Yellow Onion Chopped

1 Cup of Sliced Mushrooms

8 oz of Baby spinach

1 Chopped Bell Pepper

2 Whole Wheat Pitas

1/4 Cup of Shredded Cheese

1) Heat frying pan on medium with olive oil

2) Saute onions with a pinch of salt and pepper

3) Add bell pepper and mushrooms to the pan and cook for about 4-6 minutes until mushrooms are cooked through. Meanwhile heat pitas.

4) Add spinach for 2-3 minutes before it wilts

5) Remove veggies from the stove top

6) Insert veggies into pita and add cheese

7) Enjoy and Share!
NOTES: You can really add whatever you want to this mix. I was just trying to use up what was getting ready to go bad in my fridge :-)
