Start Your Weekend Off Right with Feta Fusion Fridays

Reinvigorate summer with our fun Feta Nachos recipe.

The frenzy of September is upon us – school is in session, schedules are back on, the pace is faster and we’re not quite ready to give up on summer fun. Well, you don’t have to. You’ve heard of Taco Tuesdays, but have you heard of Feta Fusion Fridays!?

Our nachos recipe is a great healthy after-school snack or meal and it’s so easy to do. Your kids can help assemble and dinner is ready in just a few minutes. It’s also makes a simple party appetizer, too.

For this easy recipe, you’ll need a variety of fresh or canned ingredients, like tomatoes, corn, black beans, cilantro and some Krinos favourites: Krinos Kalamata Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Krinos Roasted red peppers, Krinos Pure Greek Oregano and of course, Krinos Feta cheese, crumbled. Nachos are homemade too, by the way.

To start, pre-heat the oven to 350°f (180°c). To make the homemade nachos, using Lebanese style pocket pita, cut each into 6 pieces, and separate the layers. You’ll need about 8 pitas, but if you have a lot of people to feed, add more. Place on baking sheet, brush with olive oil and season with oregano and salt. Bake for 8 minutes or until pita chips are lightly golden and crispy. Set aside. (If you’d like, you can make a big batch of these nacho/pita chips to use as part of school lunches, or a quick bite. They’re delish.)

Then, on a parchment-lined baking sheet, add 1/3 of the pita chips and sprinkle with crumbled Krinos Feta cheese, diced tomatoes, corn niblets, chopped roasted red peppers and black beans. Add two more layers, following the same pattern.

Bake for 10-12 minutes and sprinkle with fresh cilantro (optional). Serve with guacamole and/or sour cream.

If you’d like to kick the protein up a notch, add grilled chicken on top of the nachos. It’s a great way to start the weekend.

We love our Feta Fusion Fridays but we want to know the best nachos you’ve ever had. Share your favourites with us!
