AL Chipino Loaded Greek Nachos

Think outside the box – is what we’re often told to do as both kids and adults. But perhaps this is another form of laissez-faire! It is also the simplest way to get rid of a pondering question, leave the kids in a frazzled confused state, and buy some time.

How many times have I been told that? Countless times. To no avail. Except when it comes to food. Somehow, that is the only time I actually put my mind and sense to work with a bubbling passion to create something new.

So here is a loaded nachos platter – Greek style! The AL Chipino Sea Salt + Black Pepper chips are the best ones to pair in this dish with the refreshing Greek components of chickpeas, pomegranates, parsley, tomatoes and spring onions. I use a Greek yogurt base for some juiciness and the salty feta does wonders to bring the whole platter together.
