Let’s do goddess football food!

I think it’s about time.

Especially since tomorrow I am totally going to be blowing your diets, but I promise it will be so worth it. So worth it.Loaded Greek Goddess Chickpea and Quinoa Pita Chip Nachos |

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!

  1. Tieghan, you are INSANE!!! In a really awesome goddess-like way, of course! This is a totally, mind-blowingly fantastic idea! I mean – yeah, it’s pretty easy to get me excited about food, but this recipe is something I am beside-myself-excited to try! Fabulous! Thanks for making my morning awesome – this was a great way to start my Friday! 😀

  2. Love your healthy twist on nachos Tieghan! I’m doing a healthy tailgating cooking demo tomorrow – would love to make these for the event.

  3. This look delish! Funny enough I made quinoa a few years ago and hated it. Just tried a new recipe with it the other day and am in love with it now so I’ve been looking for new recipes to try with it and this will be perfect. 🙂
