Greek Nachos with Tzaziki

Original Nachos

If you think about it, the first Mexican Nachos invented contained only 3 ingredients: fried tortilla chips, cheddar and jalapeños. Later on more toppings was added, and nowadays a zillion different variations exist. Also, did you know the tortilla chip is in fact American? Mexican usually simply fry old unusable tortilla breads to make them, but in the US they made the first factory to produce the chips in bags as we know them. Today a worldwide favourite!

Greek Touch

All the elements of a sunny Greek Salad on top of these nachos is a match made in heaven. Those vegetarian nachos has a whole lot of flavor in there, especially if you give it a side of tzaziki dip! The crunchy corn chips goes to perfection with the Greek flavors. To keep them crips though, better add the tzaziki appart. Plus, instead of the usual mild black olives, use punchy kalamatas olives for a real Greek flair.

Homemade Tzaziki

I usually make my tzaziki from scratch, because it’s easy and fast, plus I love this loaded with fresh cucumber dip version better. Store bought versions often lack this nice cucumber touch but of course you can use them too. For my version, I’ve added a bit of dill to it, but it could be parsley, mint or thyme. If you don’t find plain Greek yogurt, simply use a plain yogurt, the result taste the same, only the texture will be looser. The perfect dip for these Greek Nachos!
