Greek Tacos

YUMMY!!! I mentioned this recipe before, but I am actually posting it now. I made a few variations, like I used ground turkey instead of the chicken, I bought Greek plain yogurt and doctored it up with some cumin, salt pepper and garlic powder, we added feta cheese crumbles, and did not use any lettuce.

I also served this with a side of chick peas. I took a can of them, rinsed well, drained and placed in a pan with a couple swirls of olive oil on medium heat. To this I added a few dashes of cumin, and garlic powder. Then I placed in about a fourth of a jar of roasted red pepper. Cook until it is nicely warmed.

Enjoy!! I know we did!!


  1. man i can't wait to try this.

    i'm wondering if i can find a recipe for cucmber sauce. that just sounds more appealing. hmmmm.

    thanks for posting this!

  2. Oh I have a recipe for cucumber sauce...I just can't remember where it is. Just grate cucumber into yogurt...and add salt to taste I think...

  3. i found one. yay! i can't wait to try these. i think i may go to the market and get some ground lamb before i make them. i'll let you know how they turn out.

  4. i was going to make these last night, but decided to hold off till thrusday (so i can go purchase ground lamb).

    buuuuuut, i have a recipe for you.

    i'll post it soon.

  5. I am craving these so bad. I think today I am off to market to come home with the ingredients. Yes, lamb would be so good in this, but seriously, you should try the turkey!


    Brazillian Fish Stew

    i recommend only using 1 onion and 2 bell peppers. dice, not slice the bell peppers. i served it over white rice.... 1 1/2 cup rice, 3 cups water, 2 tbsp butter. simple and allows you to taste the stew.

    i used 6 tilapia, but i'm thinking i need more, or to add shrimp.

    this dish in on the verge of becoming a thai dish. i may have to try to squeeze in some curry next time.

    oh! and i garnished with strips of mango!
