Let’s do goddess football food!
I think it’s about time.
I have gone a little quinoa crazy lately. We have had it a least one or two times a week lately. Actually, it was dinner last night and it was pretty darn good, so good that I have decided to recreate it and will be taking photos sometime soon, which means I now have a line up of approximately five quinoa recipes coming your way.
I really hope you guys like quinoa.
I know it is kind of the “in” thing right now, but shockingly not only do I like quinoa, but my picky family actually likes it too. I mean it’s NOT white rice. Don’t get me wrong you all know how my family loves white rice, but a little healthy change-up is nice every once in a while. Plus, this is greek goddess quinoa and anything with the word goddess in it excites me.
I just like that word. It’s pretty.
Kind of lame, I know.
Anyway, these nachos are awesome.
Perfect for a healthy game day or easy dinner. I made homemade pita chips using this pita bread, they are hands down my favorite pita chips, the best I have ever tasted. Homemade trumps the bagged stuff… like stomps them way down into the dirt and leaves them sitting in the dust….
Oh, I am so goddess like, aren’t I?
Yeah, that’s a negative.
I basically made a greek quinoa salad with all the fixings, shoveled it onto the pita chips and topped it with a very generous amount of fresh mozzarella.
Into the oven and 5 minutes later you have a pile of healthy, cheesy pita chips. Now for the finishing touches. Last but not least, cover the cheesy nachos in feta cheese and fresh basil. This step is a must. No really, I am demanding you do not skip this step.
The feta is the best part. It’s what gives these nachos that pretty goddess glow. Trust me, just do it!
I think Zues would approve.
P.S don’t forget to check out my first apple post of the season. It’s cheesy and caramely and awesome!
