By making these traditional Mexican 'cheese sandwiches' with pitta bread rather than tortillas, you can enjoy this as your Healthy Extra. The pitta has to be Asda, as they are (according to Slimming World) the only ones with enough fibre to class as a Healthy Extra. Any other brand has to be synned.

*Providing you use the pitta bread and cheese as your Healthy Extra A & B..

2 Asda pitta breads.
90g reduced fat Cheddar
a few slices onion
a sprinkling of chilli flakes

Split the pitta bread and stuff with the cheese, onion and chilli flakes. Grill until cheese is melted and bread browned. I toasted mine in my George Foreman Lean Mean Grilling Machine, which I find ideal for toasted sandwiches. 


Serve with a salad of your choice and Cebollas en Escabeche.

Cebollas en Escabeche

½ tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp allspice berries
½ tsp black peppercorns
1 tsp oregano
2 sweet onions, peeled
100ml white wine vinegar

Process the spices until coarsely ground using a spice grinder, food processor or mortar and pestle.

Cut the onions in half and thinly slice them. Mix together the onions, vinegar and spices, cover and refrigerate for at least a day before using.
