This Greek Nachos Recipe is a tasty snack, but a better meal!
I will not deny that I am a Pinterest addict! Really, I can’t get enough. If our tv were to break down, I would not be sad. If we did not have internet connection, however, I’d break down. It’s that bad.
My boards are mostly food related, surprise! I’m not crafty, but I do have some craft boards because I’m optimistic that one day I will become a crafting super star! I have some kid related boards, some boards that make me laugh and smile, and some boards with practical tips. I could go on, but really, it’s all about the food.
About two weeks ago, I stumbled upon a pin for Greek Nachos. I’m not kidding, time stopped, I found Nirvana! In case I haven’t mentioned it, I am Greek. Therefore I am naturally drawn to any recipe that has feta, mint, tzatziki sauce or lamb. Put all these in an appetizer and well, I about peed my pants!! Plus this was finger food!!! All the better! I could actually eat an appetizer for dinner!
Toasting your own pita chips is insanely easy and very flavorful. Plus you control the salt. You don’t need much because of the salt from the feta. I ran out of Kalamata olives, so they are listed in the recipe, but not in the picture. You can adjust every thing to taste. And certainly, if you are not a fan of lamb, you can use ground beef, ground turkey or soy crumbles. All I’m saying is, change it as you like, but you HAVE TO TRY THIS!!! We all fought over the last crumb, its was that good. And my kids aren’t that crazy about feta (their Ya Ya would be so disappointed) but they didn’t seem to mind it in this recipe.
I will probably be making this very often, um like weekly. I hope you do to. That’s the beauty of Pinterest, you never know what you’ll discover!
