How to Make Spicy Nachos with Steak
To make these cheesesteak nachos spicy, try adding a diced jalapeño pepper or a few shakes of hot sauce to the cheese sauce. Top the nachos with more diced jalapeños!
Because these nachos are a hybrid, it’s best to use a mix of cheeses. Classic cheddar helps create the nacho cheese sauce, while provolone adds the Philly cheesesteak flavor!
I like sirloin because it’s lean, tender, and juicy! You could also use flank steak or skirt steak. Flank is leaner than sirloin, while skirt is fattier.
You can make them on the day you plan to serve them and reheat them gently in the oven. However, these nachos are best eaten fresh from the oven. They don’t keep well as the tortilla chips start to get soggy.
It is important to slowly add the cheese to the milk on low heat to prevent the sauce from becoming grainy. If the cheese isn’t melting into the sauce, return it to low heat and stir constantly while it melts.
I don’t recommend freezing nachos, as the chips become soggy and the sauce can separate once thawed. Make only as much as you can eat in one sitting for the best results.
