2
pita breads (6 inches in diameter)

  3. Mix remaining ingredients except paprika; spoon over top. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until topping is light brown.

Health Twist
This is easy to lighten up. Just use reduced-fat sour cream and mayonnaise (or even low-fat yogurt) and light or reduced-fat Cheddar cheese.
Substitution
Colby cheese or a milder Cheddar cheese is a good cheese choice, too.
