Steak Nachos Supreme
Sheet pan baked nachos are part of our meal rotation here at TKG HQ.
We pretty much always have the ingredients on hand to whip them up.
You know stuff like beans, rice, cheese, and tortilla chips
But this time…we added steak! Oh, and a bunch of produce, to make it nachos supreme!
But hey, there’s an art to this process. Let’s taco bout that 😉
How to make nachos (baked nachos)
Step 1: Preheat an oven broiler to LOW setting and scatter a layer of tortilla chips on a 13 x 9 sheet pan.
Step 2: Sprinkle shredded Mexican cheese over the tortilla chips and place under broiler for a few minutes.
Step 3: Meanwhile, heat the steak pieces, rice, and pintos. You can do this in a skillet, in the oven, or in the microwave…your choice.
Step 5: When you’re ready to serve, carefully remove the warmed nachos from the oven. Scatter the produce over the top. We always add lettuce, avocado, cilantro, lime, salsa, and serrano peppers.
For a whole other level of slay, you could toss on my Avocado Ranch Dressing .
I mean, you’ll probably fall over because it’s so good, but you can just get back up and keep eating, like I do.
