Churrasco / Skirt Steak Nachos

  • Author: Robyn
  • Yield: Appetizer for 4, Meal for 2 1x


  • nachos, 3/4 large bag
  • 1 lb skirt steak (or more)
  • cheese- sliced- I used a package of shredded “Mexican” cheeses
  • 1 can of seasoned black beans
  • 2 jalapenos
  • cilantro

Optional ingredients

  • tomatoes and onions, for the grill
  • arugula
  • salsa
  • sour cream
  • hot sauce


  1. Drizzle skirt steak in olive oil, add lots of salt and peppper. Grill the skirt steak on direct heat, no more than 8 minutes. You do not want to overcook the skirt steak (and remember that the meat will continue to cook after it is taken off the grill).
  2. At the same time, grill your jalapenos, tomatoes and onion slices. In a grill safe pot or pan, add the beans and cook on the grill. Let all of these cook as the meat cooks.
  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 2 aluminum pie pans or another grill friendly shallow dish (in a pinch, doubled-up aluminum foil could be used) 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.

Add all your favorite toppings! I added sour cream, hot sauce and more salsa!

When tailgating, you can set up a “nacho bar” and let everyone add their favorite toppings!
