"FANTASTIC recipe! (I made my own Greek spice which had cinnamon) Definitely use the red onion, it added a nice fresh crunch. I had little left over but it made a nice wrap for lunch the following day. Please try this recipe, You will love it! I'm going to make it at least 1x a month!!!"

"My husband and I enjoyed this, it tasted very fresh (unlike the normal Mexican taco seasoning). Unfortunately I don't feel like I could taste any of the Greek seasoning. Next time I'll increase that. I used ground chicken, seemed to work fine. I also didn't put the spinach in with the mix, instead I put the spinach on top of the taco with the feta (gave it more of a crunch!). I too used soft flour tortillas and it was yummy. We will make this again with some modifications."

"Excellent! I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes and flour tortillas as that's what I had on hand. Already looking forward to making them again!"

"These weren't bad, but I probably won't make them again. It could have used more seasoning. I think I will stick to regular tacos."
