Greek Lamb Gyro Frito Pie


Greek Lamb Gyro Frito Pie

Prep time: 30 Minutes

Great for: Football


In a small pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the ground lamb, and cook until browned. Add the diced white onion and cook until they are caramelized. Add the garlic paste spices, and salt, and toast until fragrant. Pour in the vegetable stock, and bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, and reduce until the mixture reaches a chili-like consistency.

To make the tzatziki sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl, and mix well.

This Frito Pie can be assembled in it’s own bag, or poured into a bowl. Top the Fritos with enough of the Gyro Chili to coat all of the chips. Drizzle some of the tzatziki sauce over the chili, and finish with a sprinkle of diced cucumber, tomato, red onion, and crumbled feta cheese.
