Greek nachos

Oh lordy, this is a yummy recipe. I originally wanted to make Greek pizzas, but then my flat bread was stale, so I made nachos instead. You could do whatever you wanted with the main ingredients of this recipe: an open-faced sandwich, a pizza, a salad, etc.

I have this awesome seasoning from a restaurant in South Carolina where my friend's sister works. She brings us regular shipments and I need a new bottle soon; I am going through it as if it were chardonnay in a box in my fridge. You can order it online here, or use your Greek seasonings of choice.

Serves: 2
Preparation: 20 minutes

1 Tbsp. butter
1 lb. ground beef
1 Tbsp. Greek seasoning
2 c. tortilla chips
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 c. spinach
1/2 c. feta cheese, crumbled
1 cucumber, shredded
1/2 c. cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 large red onion, minced

1/2 c. Greek yogurt
1/4 c. mayonnaise
1/4 c. feta cheese
4 garlic cloves

1. Preheat oven to broil.
2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the ground beef and break into small pieces with a spatula. Add the Greek seasoning, mix well and fry until no longer pink; about ten minutes.
3. While the beef is cooking, put the ingredients for the sauce in a food processor. Pulse until smooth; set aside.
4. Assemble the chips on two oven-safe plates in an even layer. Layer half of the mozzarella cheese, 2 Tbsp. of the sauce, half of the spinach, half of the meat and half the feta cheese on each plate of chips.
5. Place under broiler, watching carefully. Remove when the cheese is melted; about 4 minutes.
6. Top with cucumber, tomatoes and onions. Drizzle on sauce to taste.
