Mediterranean Nachos

Whew!  Today was so much fun!  My debut on NBC’s The Today Show!  The concept of the segment was to showcase some great sports-food recipes that are packed with taste but not all the guilt!

Directions:

To make the hummus:

  1. Drain the chickpeas (and de-skin them if you choose for creamier hummus). 
  2.  Blend in a food processor, dropping in the ice cubes one by one.  (This helps create a very smooth texture). 
  3.  Once blended, put them in a bowl and add the juice of one lemon, 2 crushed garlic cloves, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. 
  4. Mix well. 
  5.  Add water if a thinner consistency (similar to nacho cheese or refried beans) is preferred.

To make the tzatziki: In a bowl combine the Greek yogurt, the rest of the garlic, the remainder of the lemon juice, the dill, a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, the finely diced cucumbers, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

To Make the Nachos: Top the pita chips with a drizzling of the hummus. 

Add a healthy dollop of the tzatziki and sprinkle with the remaining cucumbers, the lettuce, the olives, the tomatoes, and the feta.

Serve and enjoy!
