  • 1/2 lb grass-fed top sirloin *a bigger steak yields wonderful leftovers
  • 4-5 garlic cloves *crushed or minced
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil



  • 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.


*Please use as many organic ingredients as possible.*
