Take your walking tacos to a new level and serve Greek Walking Gyros instead! Same fun way to eat them but with Greek spiced lamb, feta, tzatziki sauce, and crushed pita chips!
Walking Gyros are a new version of walking tacos! I posted these party favorites last week with some variations on regular tacos.
