Taco Tuesday Remix: GREEK TACOS!

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Well somehow after 10 years of thinking I could happily eat tacos 3 meals a day every day, I have burned out just on Taco Tuesdays. So this Tuesday we had a Taco Tuesday remix: Greek Tacos! This recipe is modified from Mountain Mama Cooks. Let me just say: This. Tzaziki. Sauce. Is. Everything. Every last thing. All the things.

Sidenote: in making this I realized Greek and Mexican are basically the same thing but with cucumbers instead of peppers, lemon instead of lime, and tzaziki sauce instead of sour cream. What else can I substitute on Tuesdays to switch it up? Around the World: In Tacos, coming soon?

Servings: 5
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 20 mins

For the Meat:
  • 1 cup natural chicken broth ($.50)
  • 1 lb ground turkey ($4.00)
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced ($1.00)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
Combine the turkey, broth, garlic and onion in a frying pan and cook over medium until meat is browned.

For the Greeko-de-Gallo (i.e. Greek salsa- get it, like Pico De Gallo but Greek)
  • 2 medium cucumbers, diced ($2.00)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced ($2.00)
  • 1/2 red onion diced ($1.00)
  • 2 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar 
  • 1/2 lemon worth of lemon juice ($.50)
Toss all of the ingredients together.

 For the tzaziki sauce:
  • 1 cup low fat Greek Yogurt ($1.00)
  • 1/3 cup Feta Cheese ($1.50)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced reeealllly tiny 
  • 1 teaspoon dill (you can use dried dill, I used fresh dill from the grocery store. This was kind of expensive, if I do this recipe on the reg I am investing in dried dill)
  • 1/2 of a large cucumber minced reaallly tiny ($.50)
  • Garlic powder to taste
Mix all of this together well.

Set this up buffet style and let people serve themselves. We ate these with Ezekiel tortillas which were amazing and clean- you can buy them freezer section at Whole Foods and I've occasionally found them in the freezer section at Giant too.

Cookin that meat!
