Everyone likes nachos. Here, the concept is the same, the flavor pallet is different.

Made as written for ZWT6, mostly because your recipe happily combines most of my fave Greek ingredients & all are easily available here in Iceland. I added a bit of garlic in 2 places: Sprinkled on the pita wedges & in the meat mixture. Must have my garlic where it works so well. I used my magic bullet to whiz the sauce, so that was very fast. Served as part of an appy nite, I fully expected we would enjoy these tasty nachos & we did. Thx for sharing your recipe w/us.
These were WONDERFUL! I may add garlic next time but these are amazing as is...Thanks for the recipe!!
Just finished eating these while watching Brazil play PRK in the World Cup 2010. The score's 2-0 for Brazil right now and these great greek-inspired 'nachos' really scored with my family! Everything tasted great together. Perfect with ice-cold beer. Thanks.
