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!

  1. Just a few minutes ago, I wrote on a sports blog that my favorite game day snack was oven-tasted nachos — and that was before I read this recipe. This sounds fantastic and your description of them as being gyros flavored says it all! Count me in! Thanks for sharing.

    • You should try these, you’d love them!

  2. I LOVE Greek food and I am obsessing over these nachos! How awesome is that to combine nachos with Greek toppings?! The more sauce and olives I can get, the better :) and I agree–my Pinterest boards are my hoarding obsession with recipes haha. If the internet went down, I’d probably sit in a dark corner and rock back and forth.

    • I would totally have to be committed if I didn’t have internet!! These really are stellar nachos, man the flavor!

  3. Yummy! I think I would just make these without the lamb and feast! I love it thanks for sharing, going to pin it!

    Visiting from Whimsically Homemade!

    • AS long as you have the other flavors, the lamb wouldn’t be missed!

  4. These look incredible! Thanks for sharing. I love feta and tomatoes together.
    Blessings,

  8. Yum! I’m Greek too, so um yeah, anything with feta and kalamata olives is right up my alley. Thanks for the recipe. Pinning this! :-)

    • Yeah! A Greek buddy! Hope you get to try these!! Thanks for visiting!

  9. Sounds like heaven. K-ster hates olives so I’d have to add mine after. What is “Greek Spice”?

    • Greek spice is a blend of spices. I think it’s made by mcCormick! Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Oh, I’m going to try this, pinning it now. I’m Australian we have a huge Greek community, I had so many Greek friends growing up. I loved nothing better than scoring an invite for dinner. Even now, if I’m going out Greek food is my first choice

    • Greek food is full of flavors! Strangely, I’m drawn to Mexican! Thanks so much for visiting!

  12. Yum! Your Greek nachos look and sound absolutely delicious! I definitely need to try this! :)

    • Thank you! Let me know if you try them!

  13. Always want to make lamb. This is a great healthy twist on nachos. Please share this today on foodie friday.

    • I love lamb, but don’t eat it often. This is great way have it!

  14. Don’t you love all the inspiration you can gain from Pinterest??? I too am not crafty, but have aspirations to be…maybe someday.

    I love the idea of pita chips as the tortilla chips for the greek nachos! Can’t wait to give them a try, but without the lamb since I’m a vegetarian!

    • I hope you try them! Pinterest has been the best invention ever!!!! I get so many menu ideas!
