Fajita Nachos

You can start the night off with an enormous plate of mouth-watering Gordo’s Fajita Nachos. All the spiciness of beef (or chicken) fajitas layered in mounds of tortilla chips with onions, peppers, tomatoes and topping it off with the piping hot goodness of Gordo’s! Wow! A touchdown FOR SURE! Give him 6!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ½ lbs flank steak, or chicken
  • 1 container any flavor Gordo’s® Cheese Dip
  • 1 bag of tortilla chips
  • 1/2 onion (sliced)

Add toppings of your choice; sour cream, salsa, guacamole, pico de gallo, lettuce, tomatoes, and cilantro.
