A fresh Mediterranean twist on Nachos! You'll love these Greek Nachos with ground lamb and a feta yogurt sauce.
- 10 oz pita chips
- 1/2 pound ground lamb or ground beef
- 1 cup hummus See Notes below
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1 tsp thyme
- Pinch salt & pepper
Feta Cheese Sauce
- 6 tablespoons Greek yogurt
- 4 ounces feta cheese
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or diced garlic
- 1 tbsp cucumber diced
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 cup kalamata olives sliced
- 2 tablespoons chopped red onions
- 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
- In a large pan, add ground lamb with onion, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until thoroughly browned.
- As the meat cooks, spread your pita chips onto a large baking sheet and heat the oven to 375°F.
- Add meat mixture over chips and bake for 5 to 7 minutes, until the chips are warm and toasty.
Feta Cheese Sauce
- Prepare your whipped feta sauce, ideally while the the chips and ground meat are in the oven. 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.
- Spoon the feta sauce over warm chips and meat in several dollups. Add hummus and remaining toppings (cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, red onions, parsley or mint, and extra feta if desired).
- Serve immediately, and enjoy!
This can easily be made Vegan: Just skip the meat and use Almond or Coconut yogurt sauce instead of Greek yogurt. To make it Gluten Free: Use tortilla chips or gluten free crackers instead of pita chips. Ground lamb is great in this recipe, but it can be expensive. Save $ by using ground beef or no meat at all instead. It's still a great veggie dish. We made our own hummus recipe for this, which I will share on nachonation.co soon. However, store-bought hummus works just fine on this recipe as well. This recipe was inspired by Michelle, "The Gracious Wife". Thanks Michelle! thegraciouswife.com
