It’s finally football season again!

After the long offseason, your favorite team is ready to hit the gridiron while you hit the couch to watch and root them on. The best thing about watching football from home no doubt is the snacks. Whether you are just entertaining your family, a few friends or the whole neighborhood, no one wants to watch the game on an empty stomach.

Two staple snack options for any Saturday or Sunday football fiesta are nachos and hummus. Both are crowd pleasers, simple and easy to eat. So, why not combine them?

Try this one on for size: Greek Nachos! Yeah, that’s right. We have a great new recipe from food blogger Kate that puts a Mediterranean twist on nachos, combining two members of snack royalty.

Pita chips take the place of nacho chips and are smothered by fresh parsley and tomatoes while olives and feta cheese give them a nice bite of the Mediterranean. Randall chickpeas and an easy-to-make, creamy hummus sauce really set this treat off.

Blow your guests away this weekend with a recipe that is sure to score a touchdown for your taste buds!
