Ham and Cheese Pitas with Salsa

This little ham and cheese pita is something my hubby told me about. When he first moved to Boston from Guatemala ( he was 10 at the time) they lived with his aunt and uncle for a while. He said his aunt used to make these for him a lot and he really loved them. I thought, why not try and recreate it for him and see if they taste the same as he remembered. This does seem like a simple pita sandwich, and I was a little skeptical about the salsa in it, but these are really tasty. I can see why he liked them so much. And yes, hubby said these were just like he remembered.

Here’s what you need:

*pita bread

*deli ham, I used black forest ham

*sliced cheese, I used a cheddar Colby Jack blend

*salsa, I used the kind from a jar, because I was afraid my homemade kind would not be thick enough.

Preheat oven to 400°

Open the pita bread. I didn’t buy the kind where the top is already pre sliced and open. I think next time I will buy that kind because it’s much easier to open.

Place one slice of cheese on the bottom of the pita bread.

You can use more then one slice if you prefer.

Next, place several ham slices on top of the cheese.

Spoon the salsa on top of the ham.

Place on a baking sheet.

Repeat with desired amount of pitas that you want.

Place in the oven and cook for about 5 minutes or until cheese starts to melt and everything is warm.

Serve and enjoy!
