Reviews forCheeseburger Pitas
"Loved these! Super easy and delicious - they were a big hit with my husband and son! I added chopped lettuce to each pita pocket and topped with sour cream before serving."
"I was using flour tortillas because I had no pitas. Even my 6 year old son did love it and he is hard to please when it comes to food"
"I love this recipe, so flavorful and easy to make. Can be doubled very easy. The filling freezes very well."
