Steak Fajita Potato Chip Nachos

You'd think it would be hard to improve on nachos.

You'd think.

But these "loaded" steak fajita potato chip nachos do just that.

Start out with your choice of thinly sliced grilled steak (I love skirt steak for this recipe), and add a heap of fresh vegetables, cheese, and potato chips.

Chop everything up and layer it onto a baking sheet.

And then layer again.

A quick run under the oven to get things all melty and you've got your new favorite "snack-for-dinner".

Which beats breakfast-for-dinner any day in my book.
