Abuelo's Copycat Recipe
Individual tortilla chips baked with cheese and your choice of grilled fajita steak or chicken. Served with sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo and jalapeño slices.
1 lb flank steak
1 bag tortilla chips
2 cups shredded cheese (choose whatever your favorite is, I like Kraft's Mexican blend or a good white American cheese)
sliced green peppers
nonfat sour cream (optional)
1 envelope fajita seasoning mix
If you have a grill, grill flank steak seasoned with fajita seasoning until done.If not, you can also cook indoors in a well-greased skillet. Arrange tortilla chips on a baking sheet with aluminum foil covering it.A pizza pan works particularly well for this.Top the chips with the cooked Flank Steak, topped with cheese and any other toppings you desire, such as peppers or onions.I also like to add a bit of fajita seasoning to the cheese to give it a little zest. Place in 350 Degree oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on how long it takes to melt the cheese. Garnish with sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, tomatoes, or any other desired garnish.
Notes: If you want large individual chips like the restaurant break taco shells in half so they lay flat then load them up with meat, vegetables and cheese.
