Greek Nachos

Greek Nachos

Oh Lordy, these nachos. They are all kinds of amazing.

Greek Nachos

Although I love nachos covered in melty gooey cheese, that requires turning on my oven which I don’t want to do any more than I have to these days. These Greek nachos don’t require any baking and instead of being topped with tons of cheese and other more fattening ingredients, this Greek version is topped with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and of course, tzatziki! I want to put tzatziki on all the things!

Greek Nachos

I love the combo of the crispy pita chips with the cool cucumber and other veggies. It’s almost like eating a salad on top of pita chips. This means you can stuff yourself silly with these and you don’t have to feel all guilty and stuff. Sounds pretty good, right? I thought so.
