Pita Pinto Treat

Cajun French:  goûtailler (goot-a-ee-ā) – snack



Having a pot of cooked Pinto Beans means thinking of creative ways to use the beans.  We try to have some type of healthy snack in the afternoon so the mind went to work.  We had pita bread, guacamole, goat cheese, tomatoes and green olives – now what to do with them.  We thought about mini pizzas, yet they would be too hard to eat without utensils.  Okay, same concept just cut the pita bread in quarters and single layer.

Mais C’est Bon!



  • 1 cup pinto beans, with some liquid
  • Hot sauce
  • Cajun seasoning
  • 1 Roma tomato
  • 12 green olives
  • Guacamole
  • Herb & garlic goat cheese
  • 1 slice pita bread

Mash the pinto beans. (We use a bullet)

Season with hot sauce and Cajun seasoning to taste.

Set aside

Chop tomatoes, set aside

Chop olives, set aside


Open pita bread to single layer.

Cut each piece in quarters.


For each quarter of pita bread:

Spread layer of goat cheese

Spread layer of guacamole

Spread layer of mashed pinto beans

Sprinkle tomatoes and olives on top


This is a great snack or could also serve as an appetizer.
