Southwestern Chicken Pitas with Chipotle Sauce

Southwestern Chicken Pitas with Chipotle Sauce

L810C 0

"This is a quick, great tasting sandwich that's a little spicy. This spice mixture is similar to the (great) Philly Steak Sandwich recipe submitted by Wendy L, but modified for the Southwestern flavor. The sauce is best prepared before hand to let flavors blend."

My family loves the chicken and dislikes the sauce. We eat this regularly, but use a chipotle ranch sauce instead.

This reminded me of a mole sauce recipe I make. Love the sauce, made wraps vs pita's. A definite make again recipe. I too added garlic and onions.

Wow! This tastes like it could come from a restaurant! Even with just the sauce, it is excellent!

Very good, though this recipe makes way more sauce than is necessary.

Very good and the sauce is different in a good way. Makes allot of sauce!

Really, really good. I added garlic to the onion and bell pepper saute and only used 1 1/2 chipotle peppers and 3 tbsp peanut butter (instead of 4) in the sauce. For those of you who are as ...
