“These are regular menu items in all the respectable taco joints in Mexico. Ingredients are so obvious, nobody needs a write-down recipe with exact quantities. You just reproduce it. Many times I prefer these over regular tacos.”

Directions

  1. Carefully cut open pita bread 2/3 down, but not entirely.
  2. Optional-- spread some butter on each inner flap.
  3. Spread a thin refried bean layer on each inner flap.
  4. Continue filling with rest of ingredients.
  5. Finish off with a few drops of lime juiceand a sprinkling of your favorite Mexican chile sauce.
  6. Carefully transfer to pancake type of grill and lightly toast or fry golden brown on both sides.
  7. Careful when turning over-- would be best to use long ice cube type prongs to keep filling inside when turning.
