Fun to make, delicious to eat. Enjoyed by all.
Load Up The Greek Nachos
You can add whatever you want and they will always be delicious. This recipe uses classic Greek ingredients:
- kalamata olives
- canned artichoke hearts
- herb and garlic cheese blend
- feta cheese
- fresh tomatoes
- tortilla chips
Full instructions are in the recipe card, but I am sure you are very familiar with layering the ingredients and baking the nachos.
I used a cast-iron skillet instead of a baking dish. It keeps the chips nice and hot while eating.
Mediterranean nacho recipes also use pita chips, so feel free to swap out the tortilla chips if you prefer.
Making Homemade Hummus
If you have never made hummus at home, you are in for a treat. It is super easy. You do need a good blender or food processor to get the job done.
Combine all the ingredients:
- canned chickpeas
- tahini paste
- Greek yogurt
- Greek seasoning
- olive oil
Blend until smooth, adding more water if needed to create a creamy texture.
Place hummus in a bowl, garnish with more olive oil, and chopped or sliced black olives. This is now ready to eat, and believe me, it is addictive and so much better than store-bought.
Chickpeas are such a great ingredient to work with. You can turn them into great meals too. This easy-to-make chana masala recipe is ready in under 30 minutes. Vegan-friendly, gluten-free, and easy on the pocketbook.
Is It Cheaper To Make Homemade Tortilla Chips?
YES, and they are fun to make too. They have a thicker texture so they don’t break under pressure (like when you load them down with toppings). You can also control the amount of salt. Here is a great link to making baked tortilla chips at home.
How To Prevent Soggy Nachos
All the toppings fall off and you are left with soggy chips….that sucks! You want are bar-style nachos that are crispy yet gooey.
You can prevent this from happening by:
- layering evenly
- making sure the ingredients are room temperature before using
- you can bake a base layer of chips and cheese, then add more layers and finish baking
