Ingredients

Instructions

    For the Roasted Red Pepper Salsa:
  1. Cut the red peppers into a medium dice and mix in a bowl with the garlic, salt, and oregano.
  2. Stir in the olive oil Taste and add more salt if necessary.
  3. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
    For the Nachos:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Take the roasted red pepper salsa out of the fridge and set it aside.
  3. Spread the pita chips in a single layer on a baking sheet or a large heatproof platter.
  4. Sprinkle both cheeses evenly over the chips.
  5. Scatter the pepperoncini over the cheese.
  6. Bake the chips just until the cheese is melted, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  7. Remove the chips from the oven and scatter olives and cherry tomato quarters over the top. Spoon some of the red pepper salsa on the nachos and then dab on small dollops of Greek yogurt. Place the remaining salsa into a bowl so folks can dip while they eat. Serve the nachos right away with the remaining salsa on the side for folks to dip.
    Twist It:
  1. Make the salsa into a smooth, creamy sauce in your food processor.
  2. Just add the roasted pepper, garlic, salt, and oregano to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until ingredients are pureed.
  3. You don't need to mince the garlic and oregano but just chop them roughly and let the processor do the work. (If your food processor is larger than a 1-quart model you may need to double the salsa recipe; serve any leftover salsa with eggs the next day.)
  4. With the motor running, pour in the olive oil until the mixture is completely smooth.
  5. Scrape the puree into a small bowl and mix in the yogurt until blended.
  6. Taste and add more salt if necessary. This gives you a creamy, bright red sauce that's a complete flavor blast.
  7. As soon as you pull the warm nachos from the oven, drizzle this sauce over the top in a lattice pattern.
  8. Cut the red peppers into a medium dice and mix in a bowl with the garlic, salt, and oregano. Stir in the olive oil. Taste and add more salt if necessary.
  9. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
