Good Morning America; Mediterranean Hummus Pita Chip Nachos

Good Morning America

Good Morning America by Haley Yamada; Add a Mediterranean flair to this American snack-time favorite.

Meet the Mediterranean hummus pita chip nacho, a twist on the Super Bowl classic!

Gina Fensler of Cincinnati, Ohio, shared this recipe with Taste of Home. 

“My husband once piled all the Middle Eastern dishes I’d made on top of pita chips. It was delicious and fun, so we’ve kept doing it! I am half Lebanese, so we usually call these Lebanese nachos. Whatever you call them, you can’t help but like them!” Fensler wrote.

1/2 pound ground lamb or lean ground beef (90% lean)

1 tablespoon pine nuts

1/4 teaspoon salt
