This is super easy to make, great as a snack or even a light vegetarian lunch.

Recipe is from the paperback book Snack Girl To The Rescue: Easy, Delicious Food for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. This is a weight loss book with recipes, and although there are no photos, Lisa gives practical advice on getting healthy along with a bit of humor. The book has 100 recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I thought I would try one of her snacks, because after all, she’s Snack Girl, right?

Greek Nacho Variations

  • Add some Kalamata olives, red onion or bell peppers.
  • For more protein, some chopped grilled chicken or pine nuts would be great.

  1. Easy and tasty. If taking to a dinner party, recommend not applying the hummus and toppings until you get there, so the pita chips don’t get soggy. I’d also like to try it with a little lemon or lime juice, maybe some dill, to make the flavors pop more. But – good basic recipe – thank you!

  2. Any suggestions for a GF substitute for Pita bread?

  3. OMG this was beyond delicious.  Our guests gobbled it!

  4. Excellent! Needed something with a crunch and very tasty!

  5. This is one of my new favorite treats!  After endless salad for lunch, I made this for my teenager and me. Wow!  excelle t flavor and filling.

  10. Loved this. It was so fresh and tasty, I am serving this the next time I have friends over. Might throw in a little avocado. Thank you!

  11. SO good! Made as a side dish for some lemon-pepper grilled chicken breasts and put a tiny squirt of lemon juice over the veggie mix as well. Outstanding!!

  12. How about trading the hummus for some thick tzatziki sauce? YUM! Looks delicious… I'll be trying this one soon. Thanks for all of the quick & easy recipes!

  13. Yummy! This reminds me of the Greek pizza i make sometimes using similar ingredients. Anything with feta, hummus and cucumbers wins me over. Looks delicious!

  14. If you like Kalamata olives, try to find Chalkidiki olives. Much more meaty and juicy!

  15. What a great idea! I just adore hummus and feta, so will have to try this ASAP. Bet it would be awesome on a salad as well.

  16. This looks amazing (and yes, I'd add the olives 🙂 Will have to try it next time I can find pita bread (it's not as easy to find here in Bangkok as you might think, as weird as that sounds!)

    Lovely blog, btw.

  17. So simple yet brilliant.

  18. I need these! Wish I had seen this before I went to the store…but I may have to go back tomorrow 🙂

  19. Looks so good, I might add some sliced green onions and olives.

  20. I often have hummus for pita for lunch – I love the idea of making it into nachos for a fun little twist! I also love the idea of adding olives and peppers – even more YUM!

  21. thanks for the nail color!!

  22. Dill added to the tomato/cucumber/feta mixture will make this perfect.

  23. CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE THESE!!!!!

  24. Tomatoes while roasting brings out a nice flavor

  25. Suppose you could add some chicken or lamb souvlaki meat to make it
    a bit heartier??

  26. Great idea will definitely try it!
    BTW what color / brand of nail color are you wearing? Love it!

  27. I love pitas! What a great idea 🙂

  28. Oh. my. goodness! that look soooooo yummy. I think i might swap out the cukes for zukes, but hey— awesome idea!!

  29. I'm definitely trying this one..

  30. Such a simple yet delicious recipe. You come up with the most amazing things, Gina. Bravo!

  31. These look fantastic! I usually have all these ingredients on hand… now I have a new way to use them. Thanks for the great idea!

  32. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  33. Easy and delicious! Just what you want during a hectic working day, ooooor a fancy but quick Saturday breaky (or the obvious evening treat!)…yes I could totally do this for breakfast 😀 Mmmm!
    Thanks for sharing, I hope you find more recipes from the book to share with us 🙂 x
