Pitas Monique's Way

Courtesy of Monique


4 pitas
Canned tomatoes
Canned kidney beans
Bean sprouts
Salsa or garlic sauce
Mexican spice mix
Any kind of beans you can find


Put some oil in a frying pan, add the chopped onions (as much as you like), add the canned tomatoes with their juice, add the minced garlic, the beans, some Mexican- spice mix (a lot if you ask me) and let it all simmer for awhile until everything is really warmed.

Put the pitas in a pre-heated oven (350 F) for 5 minutes and then take them out, slice them open, put some lettuce, sliced cucumber and slices of fresh tomato in, and add the bean mixture. Top all of this with some salsa or garlic sauce if you like.

It's a bit tacky to eat, stuff keeps dripping on your fingers and hands but it's heavenly and if you don't use much sauce not too many calories. Serves four.
