Avacado Chicken Pitas

These were easy and REALLY good! And the ingredients are good for you too!

4 whole pita breads (I used flat bread)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
3/4 pound cooked rotisserie chicken (I boiled and shredded 2 chicken breasts)
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 cups (8 oz) shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Brush one side of each pita bread with oil. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350* for 12-15 minutes or until browned and crisp. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mash the avocado with lemon juice, salt, garlic powder and hot sauce. Spread over pitas. Layer with chicken, tomato and cheese. Bake for 5-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.
