Mediterranean Nachos for Game Day #SundaySupper

Confession: I don’t watch sports. I didn’t know who was playing when and on what day and where until just hours ago. Seriously…no joke. And I’m married to the same kind of person too. He owuldn’t know a hockey puck from a home run if it smacked him in the face.

But….we do like the food. And the commercials. And maybe the half-time show too but those have been gettin’ pretty crazy lately.

So..what we are making for Game Day..or should I call it ‘Pause through the game and just watch the commercials day’…sorry…don’t hate me!

Mediterranean nachos is where it’s at! A much healthier and just as filling and even more delicious than the traditional loaded nachos! These guys are packed with gorgeous eye popping color, crunch, flavor, spices and with nearly half the fat!

These are some of my favorite flavors…turmeric and cumin, hummus with tahini, cucumber and mint yogurt and bright fresh lemon juice.

And this is all quite easy to put together as well! I am sure you have chicken and hummus in your kitchen now and some tomatoes to throw in. But it’s the balance and pairing of why all the flavors work magically together.

I will provide homemade recipes for the hummus and cucumber yogurt, but if you have store bought, that is just fine! The chicken can be done ahead of time and shredded  when you’re ready to make the “nachos”.
