Greek Tacos with Dill Sauce

This is a surprising twist on standard beef taco recipes. We stuffed our seasoned beef into pita pockets, and topped it with a healthy bunch of vegetables and the salty spike of feta cheese. Our Greek taco recipe is one of our favorites and makes its way into the dinner rotation on a regular basis.

Greek Seasoning brings together some favorite Mediterranean flavors into a blend that can be used with chicken, beef, lamb or pork. The dill sauce adds herbaceous freshness with a dash of tang. You can use whatever degree of lean-ness in the ground beef and whatever fat content of yogurt you prefer. Keep the ground meat lean and the yogurt fat free and this qualifies as light and healthy as well as being super quick and easy!
