“I found this recipe in a cookbook 25 years ago and have been using it ever since. Everyone in my family loves it and it keeps for several days. It contains avacado, which I leave out. To make the pita pockets easy to fill I microwave them 5 - 10 seconds so they are pliable. Instead of buying a whole package of cheese, I use 2 stick of string cheese. Hope you enjoy.”
