Creamy, Savory, Crunchy, and Sweet
The idea for these nachos first hit us when Lauren saw a Taco Bell commercial. It worked in our favor that she was incredibly hungry at the time. If she wasn’t, she may not have been convincing enough to coax Tyler into taking a trip to the grocery store. She had a vision of nachos with guacamole, veggies, and chunks of steak spread over the plate. After some brainstorming, we realized spreading some salsa all over would bring some welcome sweetness to the chips, and a squirt of lemon juice over the top would add some acid to catch your attention as soon as you take a bite. We were ready to bring the vision to life.

The layers of these nachos add a unique flavor and texture to each bite. The chip and guacamole combine a saltly crunchiness and creaminess. The caramelized veggies and seared steak contribute rich, juicy, savory-ness on top of that. And then the jalapeños, salsa, and lemon juice pile on a hit of sweetness/spice (depending on your salsa) and acid. Each bite is a treat! Make a plate of these Loaded Steak Nachos to pass around as an appetizer or make a full plate to sit down and enjoy for dinner. Whatever situation you’re eating these nachos in, you are in for a treat!
To ensure each bite is as delicious as possible, take time to ensure all the chips have a bit of each ingredient. It’ll still be tasty if you spread the toppings around quickly, but the key to a perfect bite each time you grab a chip is to make sure all the layers of flavor are present!
To make the steak especially tasty, take it out of the fridge about an hour before you start cooking it. Bringing it to room temperature will help it cook more evenly. And even though everything will be smelling amazing and you’ll want to hurry up and get these Loaded Steak Nachos plated, don’t skip the step of letting the steak rest before you cut it. It will make the steak much juicier once you eat it!
