Recipe Steps

steps 6

37 min

  • Step 1

    Preheat an oven to 400 degrees. In a food processor, blend together the pork rinds and cheese until you have a finely crumbled mixture.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Line a 8X13 sheet tray with parchment paper and press the pork rind blend into the tray. Spread the mixture out thin so it bakes crisp like a tortilla chip.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Bake the tray for 6-7 minutes, keeping an eye on the oven so the edges don’t burn. Once the edges turn golden brown and the center a dark orange, remove the tray from the oven and cut triangular or square nacho chips. Leave them laying flat in the tray.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Reduce the oven heat to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, season the steak with the salt, pepper, onion powder, and cumin. Heat the olive oil in a pan over high heat and cook the steaks on both sides for about 5 minutes. Cooking until the steak has charred edges will be best for nachos.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Once the steak had cooled after cooking, thinly slice/chop the steak for the nachos. Quarter the grape tomatoes and dice the jalapenos.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Arrange the steak, tomatos, and jalapenos evenly over your nachos. Sprinkle the shredded pepperjack over the nachos as well. Bake in the oven until the cheese has melted - approximately 5-7 minutes.
    Step 6

    I wanted to love this but just couldn’t. The pork rinds didn’t seem to make a difference to the cheese chips. The tomatoes didn’t seem to make sense to be on there. And I did try with ground beef but didn’t like it. Wouldn’t make this again.

      Could you use ground beef? Or would it get too soggy?

        Ground beef works well here. Make sure to cook it to well done in the pan to remove all that excess moisture.
