Greek Nachos

Greek Nachos

Greek nachos are a lighter healthier twist on traditional nachos. They are a fun flavor-packed culinary mashup combining two food favorites: nachos and Greek salad.

Layered high with homemade pita chips, the nachos begin with shredded chicken, tomatoes, and chickpeas seasoned with Greek Spices. This is topped with crumbled feta cheese, fresh diced cucumber, red onion slices, olives, tangy pecorino peppers, and sweet mini peppers. The nachos can be served with a homemade batch of hummus, Greek yogurt or even tzatziki sauce if you choose.

Greek Nachos is a dish full of a delicious combination of texture and flavor. David really loved these them! I couldn’t believe how excited he was over them, especially the baked pita chips. He’s still talking about those chips.

Honestly, there is something undeniably fun about eating food with your hands. Similar to nachos and comparable in flavor, Greek nachos are easy to make and are a great party appetizer or main meal. Imagine the look on your guests’ faces when they see a platter full of these nachos. Nobody is gonna even know that this is healthy food.

Notes

If you want thinner, crispier chips, opt to separate the pita rounds before brushing with oil and cutting the wedges. I found that leaving the rounds thick made the chips seem a lot sturdier without so much crunch. 
Recipe shortcut: Use store-bought chips instead of making them yourself, but in my opinion, the homemade pita chips are easy to make and so much better if you make them yourself!
