steak nachos made in s skillet on the counter with toppings

Want a quick weeknight Mexican-inspired dish to try?

If you’re craving all the bold flavors of cheesy keto nachos, try creating them on the stove as a one-skillet steak nachos meal! It’s an easy low-carb weeknight meal I just know you’re gonna LOVE!

cooking steak on a cast iron pan

The idea is to first season and cook the steak on the stove using a hot cast iron skillet (it’s a great way to get that awesome crust, yet will still be tender on the inside). Then you’ll slice the steak and melt some cheese and jalapenos on top of the steak slices using the oven for a few minutes. Once melted, you can top your steak nachos with a little cilantro, fresh onion, avocado, and salsa as desired.

Hip Tips: 

  • Cooking steak on a cast iron skillet is brilliant, but you can always grill or cook how you prefer, then slice and melt cheese, and add toppings.
  • Try using your cast iron on your outdoor grill and cover the pan with foil to melt the cheese.
  • To achieve a deep brown crust without overcooking, let your uncooked steak come to room temp. Set it out for about 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Customize for your taste, including the type of cheese and all the topping ideas. Feel free to create your own nacho masterpiece, using keto ingredients of course!
  • Change up the meat, too. If steak isn’t preferred, chicken would taste great instead.
  • Feel free to serve this as is, or even on a bed of fresh shredded lettuce.
  • You can also make your own crispy cheese tortilla chips as I did in my Microwave nachos recipe!

    I make this but I like to use Steak-Eze I get from Sam’s Club. It’s thinly sliced steak in a patty and as you brown it it falls apart in thin strips (think philly cheese steak). Very easy.

      Oh cool! Thanks for sharing with us, Jill! I love super thin sliced steak.
