Jun 1: ‘Yeros’ wrap; Bacon and Black Bean Chili


We tried something different today. Trader Joe’s have sliced Yeros/Gyro meat available. Combine with some hummus and tabouli for a wrap with the flavors of a yeros.

There’s a little common deception in the packaging. Although on the front of the packaging it says there are enough for two yeros – implying two serves per 10oz pack – but the nutritional information has four serves in the pack. Futzing with the serving size is a very common packaging deception.

  • The fully cooked sliced gyro/yeros meat is $3.99 per 10oz pack. There are really four serves, so each serve is very slightly cheaper than the chicken, at $1.00 per serve.
  • The flatbread is 50c
  • Hummus is $3.99 per container and we used about 1/6 or 33c┬áper serve
  • We served 1/4 of the tabouli salad or 67c per serve.

Lunch today cost $2.50 per serve.


For dinner we had a repeat of the bacon and black bean chili from a few days ago. While I allocated four serves when calculating the cost per serve, in reality we got five serves.

As it did a few nights earlier, the chili with fixin’s cost $5.53 per serve, although in reality a little less.2.5
