Greek Nachos

So I was craving greek food but wanted something new for dinner, something never before cooked in my kitchen…after some digging around I found a yummy Greek Burger recipe by Gwen’s Nest (she has some amazing recipes). To my excitement the burger was accompanied by a recipe for Tzatziki Sauce! YES! But then I got to thinking, I only have ground turkey and we don’t have a grill to make a nice juicy burger, complete with grill marks. So figured I could make a “Greek Stir Fry” of some kind but THEN it clicked; lightbulb came on and the conveyer belt of creating finally started cranking a few inches. Greek Nachos. Duh! Already got the Joseph’s Pita Bread in my pantry to make pita chips and everything.

I used Gwen’s recipe (ingredients) for the Greek Burgers as well as the Tzatziki Sauce however I did a few of my own modifications to fit the nacho dish – See in “recipe” at the bottom of this post.

THM S Serves 4
Ingredients
  • Tzatziki Sauce:
  • Followed Gwen’s Recipe for Tzatziki Sauce Recipe but left out the dill.
  • Next time I might cut the recipe in half. It makes a lot of sauce (around 2 cups) which is awesome, but I don’t want to waste any of it!
  • .
  • Greek Burger Recipe:
  • Check out Gwen’s Greek Burger Recipe for ingredients but here are my substitutions:
  • 1½lb ground turkey instead of ground beef
  • ½-3/4 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • ¾-1 cup of chopped black olives
  • Omitted the sundries tomatoes (just not a favorite of mine but you could totally leave these in if you like them.)
Instructions
  1. I made the Tzatziki Sauce first then worked on the nacho meat.
  2. To make the meat, put the 11/2lb ground turkey in a large pan to brown.
  3. Add greek seasoning, garlic, and black olives while the ground turkey is cooking.
  4. While meat is browning, prep the Joseph’s Pita Chips using my recipe for the Perfect Pita Chips.
  5. Back to the meat: after it's cooked, drain fat from pan but don’t rinse!
  6. Stir in feta cheese.
  7. Layer chips on bottom, then greek meat mixture, and top with Tzatziki Sauce! I served with a side of garlic broccoli. YUM! And I didn’t even crave hummus with this because the feta cheese was so rich with the Tzatziki Sauce!
Notes
Make sure to only eat 1 regular size Joseph Pita to keep this as an S. If you eat more than 1 regular size JP it will turn into a crossover. 1 pita was perfect for me and I was really full afterwards!
