Shrimp & Smoky Chipotle Hummus Sandwich

Shrimp & Smoky Chipotle Hummus Sandwiches

Prep time: 5 minutes
Serves 2 and very South Beach Diet, Phase 2 friendly

2 whole wheat pita pockets cut in half
2 tbsp smoky chipotle hummus
Handful of mixed salad greens
6 cooked shrimp – here are a couple of options ( I always make extra shrimp and keep some aside for sandwiches and salads) This time around I used kept some of the shrimp aside before adding the merguez for dinner last night.
Chopped avocado would have been great - too bad I didn't have any

1. Warm the pita pockets in the microwave for 20 seconds. Cut pockets in half.

2. Slather a thick layer of hummus inside the pita, Add the greens and top with shrimp.

3. Serve and enjoy.

This looks lovely, however, I dont know what chipotle is, so presume that straight Hummus would be OK!

Dianne, thanks for dropping by.

FYI - chipotle are chilis (I've heard some people say they're smoked jalapeno peppers, but I'm not sure. You buy them in a tin. They come in adobo sauce, which is spicy and Mexican. You could substitute any hot peppers or hot sauce you prefer to give it some kick, or classic hummus is perfect too.

That looks very nice. Chipotle in adobo sauce is one of my favorite resources and it's becoming a standard item in many grocery stores. I love it.
