Number of Servings: 4


    1 T. salt free mexican seasoning
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed of visible fat
    1/2 c. hummus, preferrably red pepper flavor
    1/2 c. no salt added black beans, drained
    Red onion strips
    Red pepper strips
    1/2 c. chopped tomato
    1/2 c. shredded 2% cheddar cheese
    1/4 c. fat free plain yogurt


Preheat oven to 450 and grill to high heat.

Sprinkle the seasoning and garlic powder evenly over the chicken. Place the chicken on the grill rack. Reduce the heat to medium. Grill for 3 - 5 minutes per side, or until no longer pink and juices run clear. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes. Chop the chicken into bite sized pieces. Set aside.

If using the pitas - place the pita on the grill rack. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes per side, or until lightly toasted. Place the pita on a nonstick baking sheet.

**I usually just take the combination of toppings into a bowl or put into a low-carb tortilla. The count for the pitas or a tortilla is not included in this recipe.**

Spread evenly with the hummus. Top evenly inlayers with the beans, the reserved chicken, onion, red pepper, tomato and cheese.

Bake for 6 - 8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate. Slice into 4 wedges. Top each with a teaspoon of plain yogurt.
