I’ve recently rediscovered how convenient and tasty nachos are as a snack or even a meal. While, of course, classic nachos will always be the greatest of all time, there are some super fun ways to diversify your nachos out there. Tortilla chips really serve as the perfect vessel for all types of toppings, and it’s incredibly easy to adjust the proportions here to make enough for yourself or a full tray to share with others. Here are two super fun twists on classic nachos that are so easy and can even be made in a microwave!

Greek nachos


  • Tortilla chips (you can also use pita chips)
  • Chicken/lamb (or any other meat/vegetarian substitute) 
  • Olives 
  • Cucumbers 
  • Hummus 
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated 


  1. Cook your meat or meat substitute with any seasonings you desire. Once it’s cooked, mix it with hummus. 
  2. Place however many chips you desire on a plate or a tray and top with the chicken and hummus mixture. 
  3. Chop the cucumbers and olives, and sprinkle them all over the nachos. 
  4. Cover with mozzarella cheese, and cook in the oven or microwave until the cheese is fully melted. 

Pizza nachos


  • Tortilla chips (or you can use really thinly sliced and toasted bread) 
  • Pizza, marinara or pesto sauce 
  • Mozzarella cheese, grated
  • Pizza toppings of choice (mushrooms, bell pepper, pepperoni, black olives, etc.)


  1. Place as many chips you desire on a plate or a tray, and add your sauce of choice all over the chips. 
  2. Cover with mozzarella cheese, and load on all the toppings your heart desires. 
  3. Cook in the oven or microwave until the cheese is fully melted.

As you can see, there are endless ways to switch up your classic nacho recipe — everything from trying out new flavors and toppings to switching out tortilla chips for another type of base layer. Take this opportunity to let your creativity shine through!
