Walking Gyros

Walking Gyros are a new version of walking tacos! I posted these party favorites last week with some variations on regular tacos. If you exclusively use the Fritos and chili you are making portable Frito Pie, but I am taking another twist on the original with some Mediterranean flair. Walking Gyros are here!
