Greek Nachos

I've had this recipe on my Pinterest board for over a year and I'm finally getting around to making it! The flavors of everything together was great and something I'd definitely make again. The only thing I didn't love was the pita chips. I don't know if I cooked them too long, or had the wrong type of pita, but I'd much rather eat this with regular tortilla chips next time.

Greek Nachos-adapted from Chaos in the Kitchen
Total Time: 20 Minutes
Serves 4
  • 4 pitas, cut into wedges (or regular tortilla chips)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place pita wedges on a baking sheet, spray with oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 10 minutes or until crispy.

Meanwhile, heat a medium skillet over medium heat and brown beef, garlic, oregano and onion powder; drain.

While meat is browning, combine yogurt, lemon juice and zest, seasoned salt and pepper, oregano, thyme and basil in a small bowl. If needed, add water for desired thickness. Add additional salt and pepper as necessary.

Arrange pita chips on a platter or individual plates. Dress with vegetables, meat mixture, sauce and feta cheese.
