Fan-Favorite Skirt Steak Nachos – Super Bowl Grilling Series

Each new year is a time of reflection and expectation. A time to look back and take stock of the good and the bad, but also a time to plan and dream of what might be - a new job, a new hobby, a special relationship, and the next Super Bowl party to prepare for!!!

2022 kicks off with gridiron excitement as momentum builds towards the Super Bowl. We are continuing our Super Bowl Grilling Series to inspire those game-day menus. We begin with Fan-Favorite Skirt Steak Nachos. Perfect for any party but ideal for the big game, these nachos are super simple and flavorful. 

What sets these nachos apart is everything is done and assembled on the grill. While grilling the steak to medium-rare, the jalapenos, tomatoes, and onions also get a beautiful char. Grilling the veggies adds a stunning depth of flavor and texture, making this a cohesive dish rather than simple finger food. The cheese is melted on the grill as well using indirect heat. Create a whimsical nacho bar by simply multiplying this recipe so your guests can add their favorite toppings. So fire up the grill, grab your favorite jersey, and may the best team win!

Serves 3-4

Fan-Favorite Skirt Steak Nachos Ingredients

  • 2 aluminum pie pans or another shallow grill friendly dish
  • nachos, 3/4 large bag
  • 1lb skirt steak (or more)
  • 16 oz cheese- grated- I used a package of shredded “Mexican” cheeses
  • 1 can of seasoned black beans
  • 2 jalapenos
  • cilantro
  • tomatoes and onions, for the grill
  • arugula
  • salsa
  • sour cream
  • hot sauce

Fan-Favorite Skirt Steak Nachos Directions

  1. Drizzle skirt steak in olive oil, and add lots of salt and pepper. Grill the skirt steak on direct heat for no more than 8 minutes - you do not want to overcook the skirt steak.
  2. At the same time, grill your jalapenos, tomatoes, and onion slices. Add the beans and cook in a grill-safe pot or pan on the grill.
  3. By this time, you may have taken the meat off the grill. Take it off, tent it with foil, and let it rest until everything else is ready.
  4. Use two aluminum pie pans or another grill-friendly shallow dish (in a pinch, you could use doubled-up aluminum foil) and spray it with non-stick spray. Add your chips and divide the cheese between the two plates. The more cheese, the better.
  5. Put the dish of nachos on the grill on indirect heat and let it heat until all the cheese has melted (8-10 minutes approx.).
  6. Pull veggies, nachos, and beans off the grill. Chop the veggies and skirt steak and put them on the nachos. Next, smother them in the beans and add chopped cilantro.
  7. Add all your favorite toppings!
