Fajita Nachos Grande

Kim Biegacki


This meal always takes me back to San Antonio, Texas where I learned to cook up fajitas and fell in love with just how delicious they are.

I enjoy working with flank because it cooks up quickly and my husband loves it too. This is a hearty meal full of flavors. It is meaty, crunchy, spicy, cheezy and sure to be pleasy. It can be made for family and friends and especially for get-togethers too. It would be easy to double this up and serve it with some cold soda drinks or even make it more authentic and serve with some frozen margaritas.

I am sure you will enjoy.

Directions Step-By-Step

Prepare you flank the night before by either doing a marinade or a dry rub which I did. A little oil and fajita seasoning, cumin and coriander. Rub a little oil on the flank and then coat with the seasoning on both sides and put in a ziplock baggie or a sealed container and refrigerate overnight. ----This will cook up quickly on the grill 3 - 4 minutes or so.
Slice up your peppers and onions.
Saute in oil and then add ground ancho chili pepper and a little salt to your taste.
Put this in a dish that can go into the oven. Layer the tortilla chips first, then beans, sliced and drained jalapenos and 1/2 the cheeses.
Next add your sauteed peppers and onions, fajitas on top and then green chilies and the rest of the cheese.
Next place your nachos in oven to melt cheese.
Now the rest of your toppings, add your salsa, drizzle your sour cream or put several dollups on top. Add sliced green onions, black olives, cilantro and lime slices can be squeezed on top. Oh yeah, and put out a bottle of hot sauce for those who need more heat...like my husband does. LOL
Now, your ready to eat.

(I have to use whole olives cause my husband hates them. Easier to pick them off. LOL)
