These BBQ Steak Nachos are piled high with delicious flavors. Smokey pieces of grilled rib-eye steak tossed with Stubb’s BBQ Sauce, grilled corn, pinto beans, gooey melted cheese, and lots, lots more!

Serve them at a holiday cookout and they will disappear in no time. They are the perfect combo of sweet, spicy, salty, and smokey. When I make them, I just can’t get enough.

BBQ Steak Nachos are the perfect party food. Corn, steak, pinto beans and lots of cheese.


The 4th of July is only a few weeks away and besides the traditional cookout food, I love to serve something like these BBQ Steak Nachos. They are a little bit unexpected, but always a welcome surprise. 🙂

It is the sweet, smokey, and spicy combo that really makes me prefer BBQ Nachos over traditional nachos.

The flavor of these nachos starts with Stubb’s Beef Spice Rub which I use to flavor the steaks before grilling them. It also tastes great on grilled corn so I sprinkle a little on the corn before grilling it.

Stubb’s Beef Spice Rub includes a blend of molasses, paprika, coffee, and ancho and chipotle peppers. It has such a fantastic smokey flavor.

After the steak is grilled I let it rest a few and then cut it into bite-sized pieces and toss it with a little Stubb’s BBQ Sauce. Both the Sticky Sweet and Sweet Heat taste fantastic with grilled steak nachos.

To assemble the nachos, place a pile of tortilla chips on an oven-safe pan. I like to use a cast iron pan since it retains heat so well, but you can use a baking sheet or even a pie plate.

Top the chips with the grilled steak pieces tossed with Stubb’s BBQ Sauce, corn, pinto beans, and plenty of cheese. Place in a 375 degree oven until the cheese melts.

Then to really add some flavor, drizzle some BBQ Sauce and sour cream on top and sprinkle with fresh cilantro, red onion, avocado, and jalapeno slices. I mean, when dealing with something from Texas like Stubb’s BBQ Sauce, we have to go big or go home right? So I say pile those toppings high.

Nachos never tasted as good as they do Texas-style.

Stubb's Sriracha Sauce


And for even more heat, try adding a little Stubb’s Texas Sriracha!
