  • 1-1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 tomato (medium to large size) chopped
  • 12 nacho (pre-sliced pickeled) jalapeno slices from a jar
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 limes, quartered


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Cut the pita bread into quarters. Carefully open each pita quarter. 
  • Inside each pita quarter, add the cheddar cheese, green onion, tomatoes, a nacho jalapeno slice, and salsa. 
  • On the top of each pita quarter add the jack cheese, cilantro, and garlic powder.
