Mediterranean Nachos for Game Day

1 min read

Mediterranean nachos is where it’s at! A much healthier and just as filling and even more delicious than the traditional loaded nachos! These guys are packed with gorgeous eye popping color, crunch, flavor, spices and with nearly half the fat!

These are some of my favorite flavors…turmeric and cumin, hummus with tahini, cucumber and mint yogurt and bright fresh lemon juice.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 pita pockets cut into 8 wedges (or you can use store bought pita chips)
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp zaatar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for drizzling

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt

INSTRUCTIONS

  2. When done, allow to cool enough to handle and use your hands or forks to shred chicken. Reserve on plate.
  3. You can also make the pita chips at the same time as the chicken. Place pita wedges on a bking sheet and season with turmeric, zaatar, cumin and salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and bake in the oven at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes. Reserve on a plate.
  4. To build your nachos, start with the pita chips on the bottom, then chicken, feta cheese, chopped salad, olives adn top with hummus, yogurt sauce and finally with chopped onion.
