Cheesy Pita Roll-Ups

This is another really, really simple recipe. So simple you can even do it in the microwave (though you don't have to; but I did). It's kind of like the pita nachos, kind of like a Taco Bell cheese roll-up (which I am experiencing incredible withdrawal symptoms regarding) and kind of like a quesadilla. At one time. You guys probably already know all these simple recipes I've been doing lately, but that's okay. Maybe a couple of you don't, in which case I'm "helping." Sometimes I have trouble thinking of things that take almost no time to prepare so I don't know if you do too. Right now, simple meals that are super fast to prepare are crucial to me, as my first summer session semester draws to a close. Also, these are good to eat when you're sick because you only have to be standing up long enough to put some cheese on the pita, to push the microwave button and to get it out of the microwave. It's pretty substantial food (albeit not the healthiest), so it can be a nice change from the usual soups you eat while sick (can you tell I've been sick? Contrary to the dog's theory, lots of kisses do not make you get better faster).

As I work through my freezer, I find that I have a never-ending supply of pita in there. I make it sound like a bad thing, but I'm going to be bummed if I run out.

This works with whatever cheese(s) you have on hand. I like this with Monterrey jack or with cheddar. You should use your favourites, though. Hope you enjoy!

1 large pita
1/2 - 1 cup shredded cheese (again, use whatever you like here)
salsa, tabasco or Crystal's hot sauce to garnish (optional)

Lay the pita on a board and sprinkle a 1/4" thick layer of cheese all over the pita, up to 1/2-1" away from the edge. Roll it up, then put on a plate and in the microwave. Heat for about 1 minute, or until cheese is all melted. Top with hot sauce or salsa of your choice. Serves 1.

  2. Ack, siding with the dog! Not that I can blame you. :) It pretty much was exactly gooey and good. I am living on these things. :)
