Jamie’s Gyro Quesadilla with MexAmerica Wraps

by Nicole on December 16, 2012

Many of you know that my husband is a chef.  Now, having a husband who is a chef is generally a good thing but when they spend all day cooking at work they aren’t always so excited about cooking at home! It amazes me how creative he can be when he cooks, how he never uses a recipe and how he puts together combinations of flavors that I never imagined would taste good!

I had reviewed the MexAmerica wraps some time ago and we really liked them.  So when I told him he had been challenged to make an original recipe using the wraps he was  excited to get started.  I was happy he was cooking dinner and excited to see what he would come up with!

Jamie’s Gyro Quesadilla with MexAmerica Wraps

Jamie’s Gyro Quesadilla with MexAmerica Wraps


  • 2 MexAmerica Garlic Herb Wraps
  • 5 Laughing Cow Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese wedges
  • Gyro meat, 6 oz.
  • Lettuce, 1 ½ cups
  • Cherry tomatoes, 6
  • Cucumber slices, 3
  • Tzatziki sauce, 2 tbsp. and more for dipping


  1. Spread cream cheese on both wraps
  2. Top one with gyro meat and put the other on top of it.
  3. Place in hot skillet with 2 tbsp. vegetable oil.
  4. Cook until brown and flip and cook other side until brown.
  5. Cut into wedges and put on plate.
  6. Put lettuce in a bowl and toss with tzaziki sauce.
  7. Add to plate and garnish with tomatoes and cucumber slices.

The quesadilla was large and crispy on the outside.  We didn’t have any feta cheese but that would be good inside instead of the cream cheese.  I thought it tasted delicious and love how artistic the presentation he created is!

I received some wraps to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own.

You’re so lucky to have a husband who’s a chef! This recipe sounds so good. My brother-in-law is like your husband he never uses a recipe or measures anything. His food always tastes good. With me he has to hold the hot spicy food. If he’s making something hot which he does a lot, he’ll put mine aside before the spicy stuff goes in. He’s half mexican so he likes his food HOT. Thank you for sharing the recipe :)
