Sooo apparently football season started! Shows you how much I follow football, haha. Even though I don’t watch too much football, I do love relaxing Sunday afternoons with good company and good snacks. This Mediterranean Nachos recipe that I created for Randall Beans is perrrrfect for football Sunday snacking! It’s a nice change from the typical football snacking (which I love too!), because it features healthier pita chips, filling and heart-healthy garbanzo beans and hummus, and even fresh veggies. And the flavor? It’s out of this world! All the goodness of Mediterranean snacks on one platter. The crunchiness and all the delicious flavors together in one bite are irresistible, and the sriracha hummus sauce drizzle takes it over the top.
The Mediterranean Nachos can be shared with a large group as an appetizer, or split between a few of your favorite people for a more filling snack.
If you are looking for new recipes to impress your family and friends for football watching or parties, you should really give this Mediterranean Nachos recipe a try!
