Cheesy nachos topped with seasoned steak, peppers, jalapeños, and spicy southwest ranch! Tailgating just got so much better!
1 large bag corn chips (I used Tostitos brand restaurant style tortilla chips)
1 pound skirt steak or flank steak, sliced into thin strips
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
4 cups shredded Mexican-style cheese
1 red pepper, diced
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 chipotle pepper packed in adobo sauce (found near the jalapeños at most grocery stores)
1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
optional: 1/3 cup sliced jalapeños
Spread chips out in a single layer on a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 425.
Sprinkle cheese over chips, then bake for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
Spray a large pan or skillet with cooking spray. Add steak and sprinkle with garlic powder, paprika, salt, black pepper, cumin, and chili powder. Saute 5-6 minutes until steak is no longer pink.
Remove cheesy chips from oven and top with cooked steak. Scatter diced peppers over steak.
Puree ranch and chipotle pepper until smooth. Drizzle over nachos. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Add jalapeños if desired.
