It’s Superbowl time and that’s cause for a celebration!
Today, it’s all about the cheese and grilled meat, both requirements for any Superbowl party!
I took flank steak, marinated it in lemon, lime, and orange juice. Took a bunch of spices, rubbed it into the meat and refrigerated it for about 4 hours.
Remove the meat from the refrigerator and allow it to reach room temperature, then grill it for about 8 minutes per side.
Now, it’s time for the magic to happen.
Don’t forget to allow the meat to rest 5 minutes before slicing against the grain. We don’t want to lose our meat juices by slicing the meat to quickly.
Take tortilla chips, top with cheese and jalapenos, place under the broiler for about 3-5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
Remove from broiler and top with sour cream, tomatoes, guacamole, more cheese if you dare, and more jalapenos for a kick!
We have created a big bite of cheesy, meaty, goodness!
This is perfect Superbowl food. Excuse me while I take a real big bite!
