Serves 4



  1. Place beef steak and 1/2 cup HERDEZ® Salsa Verde in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes. Meanwhile, place potato puffs in single layer on aluminum foil-lined rimmed baking sheet; bake according to package directions or until browned and crisp. Prepare grill for medium heat.

  2. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Heat small skillet over medium heat until hot. Scramble eggs; set aside. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 7 to 10 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Remove; let rest 5 minutes. Slice steak lengthwise into thirds, then crosswise into 1/4-inch thick pieces. Keep warm.

  3. Push potato puffs close together in single layer so edges touch slightly. Evenly layer with eggs, bell pepper and cheese. Return to oven; bake 6 to 8 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted. Top with steak slices. Serve nachos with remaining 1 cup HERDEZ® Salsa Verde on the side. Garnish with green onions, cilantro and tomatoes, if desired.
