Get ready because these are spicy hit and are sure to liven up any party. The homemade cheese sauce with Cajun spices and the addition of lobster will make this plate of nachos impossible to resist. Get the recipe here.
3. Greek Nachos
A lighter, and some would say healthier, take on traditional nachos. Pita is substituted for tortilla chips and hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, and feta make up the rest of the dish. With no meat necessary, this is a great way to satisfy those vegetarian nacho lovers. Also, you won’t feel guilty indulging in a whole pile of them. You can even substitute the hummus for Greek yogurt! Get the recipe here.
