To make these mouth-watering steak nachos for two, you’ll need to gather a few key ingredients. 

Don’t worry, it’s nothing too complicated – here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • 8 ounces of flank steak, sliced thinly against the grain
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces of tortilla chips
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup of sliced jalapenos (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro (optional)
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced
  • 1/4 cup of salsa

Optional toppings:

  • Sour cream
  • Lime wedges

I do recommend using flank steak for this recipe, as it’s lean and flavorful.

However, you can use any type of steak you prefer, such as sirloin or ribeye.

Prepare The ingredients

  1. For a delicious and tender steak, I prefer to marinate it in a combination of olive oil, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper for a minimum of 30 minutes.

    This infusion of flavors not only enhances the taste but also adds tenderness to the meat.

    If you prefer, you can season the steak with your preferred blend of steak seasoning.

    This recipe is perfect for preparing a lovely meal for your loved ones.
  1. When it comes to tortilla chips, I prefer using sturdy restaurant-style chips, as they hold up well under the weight of the toppings.

    For the cheese, I recommend using a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese for maximum meltiness.

    And if you like a bit of heat, feel free to add some sliced jalapenos or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.

Make sure you have all the required ingredients on hand before you start making the steak nachos. (And don’t forget to customize the toppings to your liking!)

I recommend pairing your steak nachos with a cold drink to wash down all that spicy goodness.

A light beer or margarita is a classic choice, but you can also get creative with a fruity cocktail or mocktail.

While these steak nachos are amazing on their own, adding a side dish can really take your meal to the next level.

Black beans, rice, or guacamole are great options to complement the flavors of the nachos. Plus, they add some extra fiber and nutrients to your meal. (Double win!)

Simply double or triple the recipe, and serve on a large platter or baking dish. 

Just make sure to have plenty of napkins on hand, things could get a little messy.

Customize the toppings

Finally, don’t be afraid to get creative with your toppings. Swap out the salsa for pico de gallo or experiment with different types of meat like pulled pork or chorizo. 

And if you’re feeling adventurous, add some fresh pineapple or mango for a sweet and spicy twist.

As for me, I love adding a big dollop of guacamole and a squeeze of lime juice on top of my steak nachos. 

(It gives them a creamy and citrusy flavor that really makes them pop!)

Whatever toppings you choose, remember to have fun and enjoy the process. Nachos are all about letting loose and indulging in some delicious comfort food.

What is the correct order for nachos?

The correct order for nachos is subjective and varies depending on personal preference and the type of nachos being made. 

However, a common order for classic nachos is a base layer of tortilla chips, followed by a layer of refried beans, then a layer of shredded cheese. 

This is usually followed by toppings such as diced tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, and ground beef. 

The process is then repeated with another layer of chips and toppings until all ingredients are used up.

What sauces go with nachos?

Sauces that go well with nachos include salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and queso dip. 

Salsa is a classic choice and can be made from fresh tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and cilantro. 

Guacamole is a creamy and flavorful option made from mashed avocados, lime juice, onions, and spices. 

Cream is a cool and tangy option that complements the heat of spicy toppings.

Queso dip is a rich and cheesy sauce that can be made from melted cheese, milk, and spices.

What to serve before nachos?

Nachos can be served as an appetizer or a main course. 

If serving as an appetizer, it’s good to have some light and refreshing options to start with, such as a salad or a vegetable platter. 

This can help balance out the richness of the nachos and provide some additional nutrients. 

If serving as a main course, a side dish such as rice, beans, or grilled vegetables can help make the meal more filling and satisfying.

Do you put meat or cheese first on nachos?

The order in which you layer the ingredients on nachos is a matter of personal preference. 

However, a common order for classic nachos is a base layer of tortilla chips, followed by a layer of refried beans, then a layer of shredded cheese. 

Meat is typically added as a topping after the cheese, along with other toppings such as diced tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, and sour cream.

Do you put cheese on top or bottom of nachos?

The cheese is typically placed on top of the nachos so that it can melt and hold all the toppings together. 

A common order for classic nachos is a base layer of tortilla chips, followed by a layer of refried beans, then a layer of shredded cheese. 

This is usually followed by toppings such as diced tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, and ground beef. 

The process is then repeated with another layer of chips and toppings until all ingredients are used up, with cheese being the top layer.
