Greek Nachos

Yield: 4 servings.

Ingredients

  • 4 pita pockets, white or whole wheat, cut into wedges
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • Tzatziki sauce*
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 pound ground lamb
  • 1 tablespoon Cavender’s Greek Seasoning
  • 2 or 3 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled & seeded, & chopped
  • 1/2 cup calamata olives, pitted and halved
  • Mint garnish (optional)

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange pita wedges in one layer on baking sheets & brush or drizzle with a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Bake until they begin to color, turning once or twice, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, turn off oven & put chips back in to keep warm.

2. Put two tablespoons of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat & cook onions until soft, about 5 minutes. Add lamb & Greek seasoning & sprinkle with salt & pepper; continue cooking until meat is cooked through, about 5 to 10 minutes more.

3. Put chips on a serving plate & top with lamb, tzatziki sauce, crumbled feta, tomatoes, cucumbers & olives. You can garnish with mint if you’re feelin’ fancy.


* You can use store bought tzatziki sauce (we love the Wegman’s brand) or you can make it at home.
