Cheesy Nachos with steak

It’s that time of the month again, the time where I need to get my Mexican fix. As you’ll remember from my Mexican Feast post, I have as much of an obsession with Mexican food as I do with Indian food. It must be because both cuisines are based on fabulous spices and fresh flavours. So as you can imagine, these steak nachos hit the spot!

I’ve never actually asked anyone, but I’m sure there aren’t many people that don’t like Nachos. There must be something about oozy, cheesy covered chips served with creamy guacamole and a sprinkling of fiery chillies that make people swoon.ย  Well it definitely makes me swoon.

You could make nachos with chicken, fish, ground beef or beans. Anything really. Add sweetcorn or peas, use different cheeses, no other dish can be this easily transformed, I’m sure.It’s also the perfect party food. Use a big baking tray and let people pick at the nachos themselves.


I choose to serve my steak nachos with home-made guacamole, sour cream and fresh chillies but if you want to make it healthier, swop the sour cream for fat free smooth Cottage Cheese or Greek yoghurt. But quite honestly, with the chips and the cheese, why even bother swopping the sour cream? It’s not like you’ll be eating this everyday…ok I know, I also want to, but we just can’t ok!

I used left-over fillet steak that we had over the weekend and it was just absolutely delicious. But like I said, some savoury mince, grilled and shredded chicken, tuna or beans can all work beautifully with this. It really just depends on what you feel like.

Serves 6

300g Dorito’s or other Corn chips
1 tin chopped tomatoes
500g Steak (or other meat of your choice), cooked and sliced
1 cup crumbled Feta cheese
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
2 cups grated Mozzarella Cheese
2 large red chillies, sliced
Guacamole, sour cream, fresh chillies and fresh lemon to serve

  • Place the chips in a suitable dish or baking tray.
  • Cover with half the cheddar cheese. Spread the chopped tomatoes over the cheese followed by the steak.
  • Scatter over the Feta cheese and the rest of the Cheddar and Mozzarella. Sprinkle over the sliced chillies and place under a hot grill until the cheese is melted and gooey.
  • Serve immediately with a dollop of guacamole and sour cream, a scattering of extra chillies and a wedge of lemon.

    Wow… wow! I love cooking. I seriously do. I spend hours in the kitchen (I’m 23). I started hating cooking… I once made tuna mate (from the box) and it turned out into a stew… >.<

    Bout two years ago everything changed. I started baking muffins and now I'm onto lasagne, home-made pizzas, triple layer cakes and the like =) I constantly scour for cooking blogs overseas and could kick myself for not looking at home.

    Found your blog on SA Blog Awards and have voted for you. Great work… and if I hadn't already made roast chicken for lunch … I would be making this. Tomorrow, however, I'm so making this! =) Will look forward to following your blog. <3

      Hi Jovana.

      I’m so glad you enjoy cooking as much as I do. I find it almost therapeutic. When my twins give me a hard time, I retreat to the kitchen and all my stress and anxiety melts away like butter in a hot pan. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Well done on doing home-made pizzas. I’ve never made my own pizza dough but I’ll give it a try soon! ๐Ÿ™‚ So glad you found my blog and that you love it. It’s really my own little space where I can share the thing I love most (other than my husband, kids and shoes) with like-minded people. And thank you SO MUCH for voting for me! I really appreciate it SO MUCH!

      Keep reading and if you ever need to know something or just want to chat, feel free to contact me!
