Mediterranean Nachos with Garlicky Yogurt, Chickpeas and Harissa
What a yummy, yummy dish!! You thought nachos were already an ultimate pleaser but then you try this twist and its such a tie!! I love the spicy kick of harissa with cool, tasty and tangy garlicky yogurt. The chickpeas give great texture and the addition of pita chips makes this dish authentically, exotically a must experience, delicious recipe to try!
For the Nachos
3 whole wheat pitas, broken into triangles
3 Tbsp olive
1 tsp thyme
2 cups yogurt
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 can chickpeas, drained
Salt and pepper to taste
For the Harissa Sauce
7 dried red chili peppers
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground caraway seeds

Preheat oven to 375F.
In a food processer, pulse the ingredients for harissa until a smooth paste forms.
On a baking sheet, toss pita pieces with olive oil, thyme, and salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer baking sheet to oven and bake 8-10 minutes, until toasted.
In a bowl, mix the yogurt and garlic well.
Arrange pita pieces on a serving plate. Drizzle with garlicky yogurt and harissa then pile chickpeas in the center. Garnish with a piece of parsley and enjoy!
