Not your average game day nachos

Score big with your friends at your next gathering with these unique nachos. They put a full-court press on flavor.

Game day Greek nachos

March Madness has a way of bringing friends and food together over brackets, so why not head to the Final Four with more than just chips and dip? Instead of the standard snack, try this version of game day Greek nachos.

Game day Greek nachos

You’ll still find cheese and veggies tucked into the layers of this snack, but these nachos are in an elite league. I made the chips using pita bread (super easy to do) and included a tangy and refreshing tzatziki sauce to drizzle over the mound of goodies. My advice? Bake up a few extra pita chips to scoop up any leftover tzatziki sauce.
