Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook shares a recipe! Squeeze in a healthful lunch with a simple recipe that's a 10-minute snap to prep.

Ingredients

1/4
cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
2
pita (pocket) breads (6 inch), cut in half to form pockets
3/4
lb thinly sliced deli cooked roast beef
1
small red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
4
slices (1 oz each) Monterey Jack cheese

Directions

  • 1 Spoon salsa into pita bread halves.
  • 2 Fill pita breads with beef, bell pepper and cheese.

Expert Tips

Decrease the beef to 1/2 pound and fill each pita with more peppers, onions or mushrooms to fit more vegetables into your meal plan. Look for lower-sodium deli beef to reduce the sodium per serving, too.

Try 1/2 cup Old El Paso® fat-free refried beans and a small apple to round out the meal at 3 Carbohydrate Choices.

Sprinkle the pitas with chopped fresh cilantro.
