If making Simple Healthy Guacamole and Pico de Gallo prepare at same time as first marinade. If making Homemade Sweet Potato Chips, prepare while steak is coming up to room temperature.
For the Steak- Place steak in a shallow glass pan. Mince or crush garlic & spread over top of steak. Drizzle steak with olive oil. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 1-3 hours for first side. Once first side is marinaded remove garlic, flip steak and cover second side with original garlic. Cover and marinade again in refrigerator for 1-3 hours. 1 hour before grilling remove from refrigerator and let steak come up to room temperature.
Heat grill over a medium/high heat, making sure grill is fully heated before using. Place steak on grill and do not touch until you see a small amount of blood rise to the surface. Flip steak, refrain from touching again until a small amount of blood rises to the surface again. Cooking times will be approximately 7 mins per side. Once grilled, remove from heat and let rest for about 10 mins. Salt & pepper to taste. Slice against the grain in medium sized stripes and then into chunks for the nachos.
For the Nachos- Heat beans in a medium sauce pan over med/low heat or in glass saucepan with lid in the microwave for 8 mins on power level 8.
Divide Homemade Sweet Potato chips between 2 plates and top with beans, tomatoes, salsa, steak and guacamole.
