Pita Bread With Chorizo, Vegetables and Feta

"Created for the Culinary Quest 2016. This was for a pita challenge, using primarily Greek ingredients. I find this also works well with wraps and tortillas. I've said it feeds up to 4, but with a teenage boy it barely fed 3."

Ready In:




  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add chopped chorizos. Sauté for 5–10 minutes, until sausages pieces are done.
  • Chop the veggies while the chorizo is cooking.
  • Remove chorizos and set aside, and drain off all but one tablespoon of oil.
  • Reheat the oil and add chopped onions, bell peppers, oregano and garlic, and sauté for 5 minutes, until softened.
  • Add lemon or lime juice, tinned tomatoes and water, and cook for 10 minutes. Here is your chance to get the garnishes ready. These are the feta cheese, sour cream, lettuce, olives and avocado, and any other items you like.
  • After the 10 minutes, return the cooked chorizos to the pan and let everything heat through for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • While the mixture reheats, microwave (or oven heat) the pitas (or alternative bread choices) according to package directions—usually about 1 minute in the microwave for the whole pack.
  • Set everything out on the table and let people assemble their own serving.
