Philly Cheese Steak Loaded Nachos

Now, that it’s October, our back to school routine is in full swing. With my oldest going off to middle school this year, each of my boys are in different schools complete with different start and end times. Combine that with the fact my oldest has been training for his black belt test, lots of homework and my little man’s multiple soccer practices and games every week, it seems like we are literally always busy.

Since my husband, Chris, and I spend so much time focusing on the kids, it’s easy to forget to take time for each other. That’s why we try to have an at-home date night at least once a month, if not more often. When we do manage to carve out some time for a date night at home, we love to make a snack together, watch some movies and afterwards, ahem, head upstairs to the bedroom.

Inspired by our recent trip to Philadelphia, for our most recent date night at home Chris and I made some Philly Cheese Steak Loaded Nachos to munch on while we watched a couple of our favorite 80’s movies.

I love taking something in its traditional form and putting a different spin on it. These are definitely not your mama’s nachos. If you are bored with the same old nacho recipe, this recipe will spice things up for sure. While not the typical flavors associated with nachos, grilled steak, peppers, onions, and cheese sauce combine to make an amazing and fresh new topping with attitude for crunchy tortilla chips. They are the perfect snack to spice up your at-home date night.


  • 12 oz. pkg. pre cooked steak strips
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 large green pepper

Cheese sauce:

  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheese blend


1. Chop onions and green peppers.

Once the nachos were ready, Chris and I were ready for some quality time together. While I was at Walmart, I spotted some K-Y(R) Yours+Mine(R) Couples Lubricants(R) in the family planning aisle and thought that would be the perfect way to end our evening. I used a coupon for $1 off any K-Y(R) product.

Connecting with your loved one doesn’t have to be a fancy, expensive night out. Just being together, snuggling on the sofa watching some movies and sharing a delicious snack, should ignite that spark.


End the night with some alone time and try K-Y(R) Yours+Mine(R) Couples Lubricants(R). K-Y(R) Yours+Mine(R) Couples Lubricants(R) provide an invigorating warming sensation for him and a thrilling tingling sensation for her. Put the two together for a totally new, unexpected experience. It’s more exciting. More satisfying. More everything.

I love taking a few hours to unplug with no electronics and just hang out with my husband. And PS, we loved the K-Y(R) Yours+Mine(R) Couples Lubricants(R).

Want to spice up your date night at home, too? Here is a coupon for $1 off any K-Y(R) product.

About Taylor Nikaci


  1. top5life

    The dish looks very delicious. And, the idea of date every month is also mind blowing for keeping the spark alive,

  2. Theresa

    I like date night at least once a month. I do one with my best friend and her husband, but my husband and I don’t actively plan one just for us. This needs to change, I think!

  3. Kelly Hutchinson

    I am working on changing that very thing with my husband!

  4. Jeanine

    Unplugging – sounds like the perfect plan. I haven’t done that in a very long time.

  5. crystal

    It’s much harder for me to unplug than my husband. Working on it!

  6. Girl, Unspotted

    Oh this all looks so tempting! Got me craving for nachos right now.

  7. Scott

    We have a local Mexican grocery store that has amazing white cheese that would be perfect for this. Need to pick some up for Friday’s game – Go Cubs!

  8. Heather

    That looks awesome!! Fridays is usually our “taco or nacho night”, I’ll have to make this up instead!! I’m sure my husband would prefer the philly meat anyway.

  9. Liz Mays

    I love those nachos. That would be a fun change of pace! They’re perfect for a date night.

  10. Chrysa

    These look so good! I love nachos with a little “heft” to them and steak does that!

  11. gingermommyrants

    Such a great idea for date night! Parents often forget couple time is important too

  12. {Erica}EverythingMomandBaby

    What a refreshing alternative to the regular salsa and cheese/chili nacho’s. With the Jays in the playoffs I’ll have to try this.

  13. toughcookiemommy

    These nachos look so delicious. My husband loves Philly Cheesesteak so I know that he would have a ball munching on these.

  14. Jennifer H

    Whoa those look delish. I’m going to have to try those.

  24. Lois Alter Mark

    Sounds like a great date night! I am all over those nachos!

  25. leechrista

    Nachos are my favorite! Sometimes I order them as my entire meal. Appetizers for dinner. I’d fear they would make me gassy if KY were going to be in the mix though. So…Lee

  26. Theresa

    Now this is what I’m talkin’ about! Philly Nachos and date night are a perfect pairing!

  27. Mykidsguide

  46. Savannah miller

    K-Y, the Goonies and Philly cheese steak recipe!! Best date night ever :)!! I never tried these nachos before, but I can’t wait too. I don’t know if you like chicken enchiladas, but my hubby and I make something just like this with chicken enchilada and Mexican cheese in place of the cheese steak it is pretty good.

  56. Brett Martin

    Getting a date night is super important for your marriage. I need to do that more often!

  59. Jennifer Van Huss

    DH and I don’t get a lot of alone time. Being married 10 years, we realized this is very important! To celebrate our 10th anni, we bought ourselves a hot tub so that we could have a little oasis to escape to when the kids go to bed
