Walking Gyros

Walking Gyros are a new version of a walking taco bar! 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. I’m a sucker for Greek food as you can tell by my gyro nachos, lamb sliders, and lamb meatballs.

Your favorite Gyro sandwich, full of that yummy seasoned lamb and topped with cool tzatziki sauce, is now easy to prepare and serve for a crowd!

Similar to my gyro nachos, these Walking Gyros are perfectly portioned for a party!

Ingredients Needed

Pita Chips – Because gyros are normally eaten in Greek pita bread, I found it easy to use these pita chips. They even come in different flavors but I prefer the plain for this recipe.

Ground Lamb – Cook the ground lamb in greek spices and keep warm in a slow cooker while serving.

Feta Cheese – I like to use the block and crumble it myself. It’s creamier this way.

Hummus – Use your favorite flavor or just keep it plain.

Tzatziki – This cool cucumber dill sauce is a staple for gyros.

Toppings – Use all your favorites like diced red onions, lettuce, cucumber, roasted red peppers, and kalamata olives.

How to Make Walking Gyros

First: Crush the pita chips in the bag.

Second: Add the cooked lamb (or ground beef if you prefer).

Third: Top with your favorite toppings (my favorites are olives, tomatoes, and cucumbers). Finish it off with tzatziki.

Fourth: Stir to coat all the pita chips. Enjoy while walking and talking with friends!

For the full recipe and detailed instructions, please refer to the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Do I have to use plain pita chips?

No! Feel free to use plain, parmesan garlic and herb, or multigrain.

Can I make these ahead of time?

I would prepare the lamb and prep the toppings ahead of time but would wait to assemble them until right before eating.

I have never tried lamb, but, will try this with beef. I don't care for feta cheese, so will try laughing cow cheese wedges, cut into little cubes. I'm excited to try the sauce also.
