Greek Nachos

We had these on a Wednesday night for dinner, and by Saturday we were both craving them again and made them again. We have a new favorite I believe!

You will need:
- Pita Chips
- Feta Cheese
- Diced Tomatoes
- Diced Cucumbers
- Diced Marinated Artichoke Hearts
- Sliced Olives
- Your Favorite Hummus
- Cooked, shredded chicken (I've been cooking a batch in my crock pot in chicken broth, placing in the kitchen aide, mixing for 20 seconds, and I get perfectly shredded chicken. I think freeze in small bags and pull out when needed, that made this recipe super easy!)

Place chips on a plate. Get the hummus and dilute it. We used two parts hummus to one part water. Sprinkle the hummus "sauce" over the chips. Sprinkle diced tomatoes, olives, artichokes, and cucumbers, and mix a little for variety of colors and flavors. Then add feta dn chicken and enjoy! It's that easy, and they really are to die for!

Hawaiian Haystacks

I first had this food at a church function and looked at it and thought "ew." But, my family rule was that you had to try everything my Mom made. You didn't have to like it, but you had to try it. I'm grateful they raised us to be open minded because I have fallen in love with many a food I thought "ew" when I first saw.
Did I mention these are super easy? Also they may be the world's greatest potluck food. Everyone can bring one topping, it's fantastic!

2 cups of chicken broth
1 Large can of cream of chicken soup
2 cups cooked, cubed chicken (I boil mine in the chicken broth)

Cook chicken in broth, remove when fully cooked (about 10-15 minutes) and dice the chicken. Throw back into pot, and add the cream of chicken soup.

You will also need:
2-4 cups cooked rice
chopped tomatoes
chopped olives
chopped celery
cheddar cheese
pineapple tidbits
chow mien noodles

Place rice on a plate, cover with sauce, add any desired toppings.
