To spice up the beef, add about 1/4-1/2 tsp of cayenne for some heat. If you're not a fan of beef, ground lamb will taste just as delicious. Be sure to add sliced green chilies for an extra boost of flavour.

Easy Tzatziki:


Easy Tzatziki: Grate cucumber; wrap in clean tea towel, then squeeze to remove excess liquid. In small bowl, stir together cucumber, yogurt, garlic powder and lemon juice. Set aside.

Pitas: In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté beef, red onion, garlic powder, oregano, lemon zest, salt and pepper, breaking up with spoon, until beef is no longer pink, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in parsley and lemon juice. 

Spread each pita with Easy Tzatziki; top each with beef mixture, tomatoes and spinach. Season with salt to taste. Serve warm. 

Test Kitchen Tip: For a flavour boost, add chopped olives.
