Gyro Burritos

It has been a very long while since anything has been added on here, but I have a couple of new recipes to share! This one came from a friend of mine as a quick easy dinner idea and it is delish. I love that it is mostly ingredients that I always have on hand so it is a perfect meal to throw together in a pinch!

1 tablespoon olive oil 
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice 
2 teaspoons garlic powder  or finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon onion powder or diced onion
1 teaspoon cumin 
2 teaspoons oregano 
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey

8 ounces light sour cream (I actually used plain greek yogurt instead)
1 cup diced cucumber 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon dill weed 

10 large burritos 
1 large white onion, chopped 
Sliced (or chopped) tomato

Mix the cucumber sauce a few hours ahead of time if possible to let the flavors marinate, but if you don't have time or didn't plan ahead, mix it together while the meat is cooking.

Brown the hamburger or turkey, (add onion if using fresh) throw in the rest of the seasonings and saute for a few minutes.

Layer center of burrito with sauce, onions, tomato and meat. Roll up like a burrito and enjoy!
