These Greek Nachos are great for lunch or a simple weeknight dinner, but also for times like Super Bowl, when you need something quick, healthy and hearty to feed a crowd of hungry sports fans.
There’s something undeniably fun about food you can eat with your hands. That’s certainly true when it comes to this Greek Nachos recipe. Featuring crunchy baked pita chips topped with loads of veggies like cucumbers, sweet bell peppers and cherry tomatoes, as well as salty, briny Kalamata olives and a creamy citrus-spiked Greek yogurt dip, this dish is a delicious combination of different textures and flavors which is reminiscent of traditional nachos yet totally unique.
My kids love nachos and could eat them for days, thus my desire to serve them a version with a healthier twist. That eventually led me to Mediterranean ingredients which are lighter and more nutritious than traditional nachos. If you’ve never thought about serving nachos as an entree, you may reconsider after trying this Greek Nachos recipe. They are so simple to put together, it’s the perfect cooking opportunity for getting your kids involved, but they’re also a real show stopper for an adult party.
I wish that I could say we’re big sports fans in our house, but to be honest I’m the girl who enjoys the commercials as much as the actual game. Still, the one thing I look forward to most is hanging out with my family and friends and enjoying the game day fare.

This Greek Nacho Video will give you a bunch of tips for making them extra special, but stick around for the videos that follow it for a few more ideas that might spark some Super Bowl culinary interest.
