  • Bowl
  • Saucepan


  • 3 Minced Garlic Cloves
  • 2 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 ½ tbsp Kosher Salt
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 8 ounces Skirt Steak
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 ounces Grated Mild Cheddar
  • 1 tbsp Flour
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack
  • 2 ounces Asadero Cheese
  • 2 ounces Oaxaca
  • 1 tbsp Minced Pickled Jalapenos
  • 1 tbsp Pickled Jalapenos Juice
  • 1 cup Dried Black Beans
  • 2 tbsp Pico De Gallo
  • ½ cup Minced Sweet Onion
  • 1 tsp Dried Mexican Oregano
  • ¼ pound Tortilla chips
  • 110 ounce Large Tin Empty Can


  • Take a dish and put the steak in it. Then, mix lime juice, 2 minced garlic cloves and 1 tablespoon kosher salt in a bowl, and rub it over the steak from both sides.
  • Refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
  • Grill the steak over high heat until it gets charred completely. Leave it for some time, then chop.
  • Put butter and flour in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking until it gets smooth and toasted.
  • Put milk and heavy cream into it and bring it to a boil. Whisk in Monterey Jack, Oaxaca, grated mild cheddar and asadero cheese until they get melted.
  • Put a pinch each of cayenne and cumin; jalapeno juice, minced pickled jalapenos and Pico de Gallo. Remove the contents from heat and keep them warm.
  • Drain rinsed and soaked dried black beans and transfer to a saucepan. Add water and bring it to a boil. Now, put sweet onion, minced garlic, 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt and Mexican Oregano into the saucepan.
  • Simmer until the beans are tender.
  • Now, spoon some of the melty cheese in a tin can. Layer it up by tortilla chips one-quarter of the way up.
  • Put more cheese over the chips. Layer up with steak and beans as well. Season it with sliced red onion, sliced jalapeno, Pico de Gallo and drizzle with Mexican crema.
  • Repeat the above-mentioned step to make 3 more layers. After placing a large round tray over the nachos, invert the can. Now remove the can.
  • Garnish it with more red onion, jalapeno and cilantro.
