Cinco de Mayo Steak Chimichurri Nachos

Chimichurri Nachos

It’s Cinco de Mayo! The fifth of May 1862 is when the Mexican army achieved an unlikely victory over the French.

Sounds like a great reason to celebrate to me!

And, as with most cultures, how do we celebrate? Why, with food, of course!

Try this delicioso take on traditional nachos. It features steak in a chimichurri sauce – nacho style. Ole!

I literally want to eat my screen right now. I am so inspired.

Click here for super easy instructions on how to make this delectable Chimichurri Nachos dish. It’ll get you in the spirit in a hurry.

Happy fifth of May, everyone! And happy birthday to my littlest man today – my Cinco de Mayo baby!
