Greek Nachos packed with fresh veggies, chicken breast, black olives, and plenty of feta cheese are the perfect appetizer or quick meal.
These easy Greek Nachos are quickly becoming a staple in our house, especially now that the weather is heating up and I want something fresh and light. We also love these Irish Nachos.
In full disclosure, I have eaten these three times for lunch already this week. I am slightly obsessed but they are just so good. Crispy baked pita chips covered in cucumbers, tomatoes, chicken, parsley, mint, lemon juice, black olives, and tons of creamy, salty feta cheese.
Another thing I love about this recipe is the fact that it utilizes leftovers, something I always have packed away in my fridge. Since I am not someone who loves eating the same thing over and over again, I am always looking for ways to re-purpose my leftovers into a new meal.
Ingredients and Swaps
Here is everything you will need to make these easy Greek nachos.
- Pita chips: There are lots of options when it comes to the base for these nachos. Use store-bought pita chips, bake your own pita chips using white or whole wheat pita bread, or swap in another chip or cracker as the base. You could also serve these on Baked Potato Chips, Wonton Chips, or Baked Tortilla Chips.
- Protein: To make these nachos filling and hearty, you will want some protein. Leftover cooked chicken or canned chickpeas are the most popular options. You could also use Greek Ground Turkey, Greek Meatballs, or Kofta beef.
- Vegetables: To make these Greek-inspired Nachos, use the same vegetables found in a classic Greek salad including cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, parsley, and mint. Add sliced bell peppers, shredded lettuce, and radishes.
- Toppings: Feta cheese and Kalamata olives are the toppings we use most often. Any olives work and you can swap in another cheese if desired.
Add Dips and Sauces
Like any good nachos, these Greek nachos are great with sauce drizzled on top or a tasty dip on the side.
- Hummus: These are so good with a dollop of hummus on top. Homemade hummus or store-bought hummus work and you can experiment with different flavors.
- Tzatziki: Drizzling some creamy tzatziki with cucumbers and yogurt is really good on these Greek-inspired nachos.
- Add something spicy: If you want to add a spicy element, add some pepperoncini peppers, harissa, or creamy chipotle sauce.
- Greek dressing: Another option for adding a sauce to these nachos is adding some thick and creamy Greek dressing on top.
Recipe Tips for Making Greek Nachos
- Make the vegetarian: Leave out the chicken and add chickpeas instead for a vegetarian option.
- Add extra veggies: These nachos can handle all types of veggies. Consider tossing in some fresh or roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, diced red onion, edamame, or some shredded cabbage.
- Mix up the cheese: While I personally love feta cheese, I know it's not everyone's favorite. You can switch in shredded mozzarella, cheddar, or jack cheese. However, since I prefer those cheese melted, I would add the chicken and cheese to your cooked Flatout chips and toss them back in the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese. Then top with your veggies.
- Switch up the protein: Since I almost always have leftover chicken on hand, I decided to use that but you can use virtually any leftover protein in these nachos. Steak, ground beef or turkey, shrimp, or grilled tofu all work well. You could also use beans like chickpeas or white beans as a vegetarian option.
- Turn them into tacos, a wrap, or a pizza: Flatout Flatbreads makes tons of low-calorie, flatbread options. Choose your favorite and use the topping to make tacos, a quick wrap, or even a pizza. Get creative!
Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions about making these Greek Nachos.
How to store leftover nachos?
It is best to store the toppings and chips separately if possible since the chips will get soggy and wet if they are stored with the toppings.
Is feta cheese good for nachos?
Feta cheese is delicious on nachos, especially if you are making these Greek nachos or Mediterranean-inspired Nachos.
With that said, feta cheese also works on traditional Mexican nachos since it has a similar flavor to queso fresco or queso cotija, which is often crumbled on nachos.
