A fresh Mediterranean twist on a snack favorite! Greek Nachos with savory ground beef or lamb, creamy hummus, rich whipped feta yogurt sauce, and fresh toppings like cucumbers, tomatoes, and olives, all piled high on top of toasted pita chips. You won't be able to stop eating them!
In a large skillet, add ground lamb or beef, onion, garlic, marjoram, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until browned. Drain.
Spread pita chips onto a large baking sheet. Spoon meat mixture over chips.
Bake in a 350°F oven for about 5 minutes, until the chips are warm and toasty.
Whipped Feta Sauce
While the chips and ground meat are in the oven, prepare your whipped feta sauce. Place all ingredients, yogurt, feta, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic powder, in a medium mixing bowl, and mix until smooth and creamy, breaking down the feta to fully combine.
To assemble the Greek Nachos
Spoon whipped feta sauce over warm chips and meat.
Sprinkle with remaining toppings: cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, red onions, parsley or mint, and extra feta.
Serve immediately, and enjoy!
To make it Vegetarian: Just skip the meat. You can add extra hummus or whipped feta for added flavor!
To make it Gluten Free: Use tortilla chips or gluten free crackers instead of pita chips.
Ground lamb is amazing in this recipe! However, sometimes it can be expensive. You can cut costs by using ground beef instead.
To make the whipped feta sauce extra creamy, use an electric mixer and beat until smooth.
Warm chips for nachos is a must. After spooning on ground meat, pop the baking tray in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350°F, just until the chips are warm and toasty.
Add some pepperoncinis for extra spice.
Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or foil (NOT wax paper) for easy clean up!
