Easy Party Appetizer-Greek Nachos

(Recipe by Siri Daly-Food Network)

Ingredients:

Nachos:

Six 5-inch pita rounds
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups crumbled feta cheese
1 large red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
3/4 cup sliced kalamata olives
3 tablespoons thinly sliced chives

Dressing:

1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions: 

For the dressing: Whisk together the yogurt, lemon juice, honey, garlic powder and cayenne until smooth.

For the nachos: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut each pita into 8 wedges. Arrange the pita wedges in a single layer on an aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Brush the pita wedges with the oil and sprinkle with the paprika and salt. Bake until crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.

Remove the pita wedges from the oven. Increase the heat to a high broil. Sprinkle the wedges with the feta, bell pepper, and red onion. Broil until the cheese starts to melt, about 3 minutes.

Sprinkle the wedges with the tomato, olives, and chives. Transfer the dressing to a squeeze bottle or spoon into a plastic ziptop bag and snip 1 corner to make a small hole. Drizzle the nachos with your desired amount of dressing. Reserve any remaining dressing for another use.
