How To Make Greek Nachos
Unlike nachos recipe, no need for tortilla chips! You have two options for these nachos, you can either make your own pita chips or buy pita chips (like Stacey’s). To make your own pita chips, cut pita rounds into 4ths, drizzle each piece with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and bake for about 10 minutes, turning at least once. I have eaten these nachos with kinds of pita chips and I prefer the store bought because of the crisp the provide.
These nachos call for ground lamb. I know not everyone is a fan of lamb, so if that is you, then ground beef will work just fine! I like to season my ground lamb with a Greek seasoning blend (McCormick makes a good one, but my favorite comes from Spiceologist), salt, and lots of garlic!
After you pile the lamb over the pita chips, feel free to add as much or as little of the remaining toppings which are, chopped kalamata olives, pepperoncini peppers, chopped tomatoes, diced cucumbers, and feta cheese. Fresh diced zucchini, diced red onion, chopped marinated artichokes, or roasted red peppers would make excellent toppings as well! Serve a little tzatziki sauce on the side!
