My Big Fat Greek Tacos

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Grab your olives and get ready to fall in love with this insanely good Greek meets Mex twist on tacos!

Ditch your usual ho-hum tacos and try these suckers on for size! Richly seasoned ground beef is popped into a taco shell, then topped with marinated artichokes, fireroasted tomatoes, spinach, olives, and feta. A 30-second balsamic vinaigrette finishes these gems off in style.

Here's how to get them in your belly quick.

Cook up a pan of ground beef. Instead of seasoning it with taco mix, sprinkle some dry Italian dressing mix right on top of your meat. It lends incredible, zesty flavor and costs less than a dollar!
