Philly Cheesesteak Nachos

This recipe is proof that everything is better in nacho form. Even if you’re someone who likes their steak well-done, don’t cook it for too long on the stovetop! You just want a good sear on all sides. It’ll continue to cook in the oven while the cheese gets nice and melty.

As I get further into the second trimester of my pregnancy, the nausea and the food aversions have been replaced by a hunger that just won’t quit. Of course I’m not craving veggies or fruit, no, no, I’m craving Oreos, french fries, pizza and a plethora of other things I probably shouldn’t be eating. And what should you not do when you are in my shoes? Watch Man vs. Food. You see, when you watch Man vs. Food when you are as hungry as I am, you want everything you see. Strike that you need everything you see. That is exactly what happened after I saw a recent episode where he tried Philly Cheesesteak Nachos. There was no question, I needed them. So I made them. Then I ate them with reckless abandon.

A mash-up of a classic Philly cheesesteak sub and really good nachos. This is the perfect game-day food.

Preheat oven to 375°. Line a large baking sheet with foil. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then add onion and bell peppers. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the onions and peppers are tender, about 5 minutes.

Push peppers and onions to one side of the pan and add 1 tablespoon of oil to the other side. Add steak in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the steak is seared on one side. Season with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning then mix steak together with onions and peppers.

Cook until the steak is seared on all sides, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

On the prepared baking sheet, add about half of the chips. Top with half of the mozzarella, half the provolone and half the steak and peppers. Repeat to make another layer with remaining ingredients.

Bake until the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
