Turkey Pita Wedges



2 Medium plain or whole wheat pitas

1/4 c vegetable oil

Top each quarter with 1 tablespoon of cheese. Top each with 1 tablespoon of chopped turkey. Sprinkle each quarter with 1/4 teaspoon jalapeno peppers.

Microwave on high for 30 seconds or until cheese melts. Serve immediately. Makes 16 appetizers.
