  • - [Robin] Welcome to Tasty's nacho cook-Off.

  • Three members of the Tasty team face off

  • to see who can make the best nachos.

  • Competing in this event are Robin Broadfoot,

  • Tasty video producer,

  • Hannah Williams, Tasty video producer,

  • and Nick Guillory, Tasty social media strategist.

  • (upbeat surfer music)

  • So today I'm making steak and potato nachos,

  • so I made this into a video and once it was made,

  • I usually like to take my food home,

  • but in this case, it didn't happen,

  • because all my coworkers ate it.

  • I've got three russet potatoes, which I'm going to season

  • with olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika.

  • I'll bake the potatoes at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes.

  • While that's cooking, I'm going to season the steak and

  • get a nice sear on them roughly three minutes each side.

  • I'll flip the steak once.

  • After that, I'll let the steak rest for eight to 10 minutes

  • because it's still cooking after you take it out of the pan.

  • Once the potatoes are ready, I'm going to lay them

  • around the cast iron pan and sprinkle the steak on them.

  • When everything's assembled, I'm gonna cover the dish

  • with freshly grated cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese.

  • And then I'm just gonna boil it seven to 10 minutes

  • until everything's nice and melted and then top it off

  • with sour cream and salsa and serve it.

  • When I was younger, I wasn't really allowed in the kitchen.

  • My mom would always shoo me away,

  • but then going to college, my dad said this would be

  • a good way to go on dates, if women knew you could cook.

  • - [Hannah] Today I'm making Korean pork belly nachos.

  • I make a lot of desserts for Tasty.

  • I'm kind of known for making cheesecake.

  • This is a little out of my comfort zone.

  • So the first thing I'm gonna do

  • is get this pork in the marinade.

  • It's gonna marinate in some kimchi juice, soy sauce,

  • sesame oil, Korean red pepper, and honey.

  • Then I'm gonna sear it on extremely high heat to try to

  • render the fat a little bit to get it nice and crispy.

  • And while that cooks, I'm gonna dice my toppings.

  • I got some red onions, some kimchi, and I'll layer that

  • on top of the pork and the chips.

  • I'm gonna grate some cheddar and Monterey Jack

  • and let that melt on top of the nachos.

  • And then my finishing touches

  • are gonna be some diced tomatoes and green onions

  • and that's gonna go on top of everything once it's melted.

  • And I'm gonna mix some sour cream with kimchi juice

  • and drizzle that on top as a finishing touch

  • to tie it all together.

  • When I think of nachos, I think of kind of the standard

  • salsa, beans, cheese, whatever you like on that,

  • so this is just a really, really different type of nacho.

  • It's not too loaded, it's not too heavy,

  • but it still has a lot of flavor.

  • - [Nick] Hi, I'm Nick and I'm making

  • spicy, cheesy, blackened chicken nachos today.

  • These guys cook like this all the time.

  • This is my first time like cooking with all these cameras

  • and these fancy lights and these microphones.

  • Like I'm not gonna lie, I'm scared.

  • I'm gonna season my chicken with cajun seasoning,

  • garlic powder, chili powder, and hot sauce.

  • While that's cooking, I'm going to cut up some onions,

  • tomatoes, jalapenos, and corn.

  • I'll saute those veggies with more cajun seasoning.

  • I'll add the blackened chicken to the mixture

  • and top it all off with freshly grated

  • pepper jack cheese and salsa.

  • Broil that until the cheese is melted.

  • I'm from Louisiana and I love spicy food.

  • I like to entertain at home.

  • This will be like a cute little appetizer,

  • get everybody nice and spicy and moving around,

  • and hot and sweaty before we go dancing.

  • (upbeat surfer music)

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] What kind of beautiful mess is this

  • that I walked into?

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] That's exactly what nachos are,

  • a beautiful mess.

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] This is real crunchy.

  • It's got a nice crunch to it.

  • - [Taste-Tester 3] Got a nice crunch to it.

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] I love this, but it doesn't

  • have that classic nacho cheese.

  • - [Taste-Tester 3] Yeah.

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] It's very original though.

  • Okay, let's go to the next one.

  • It almost functions kind of like a dip.

  • This looks like a little bit of salsa, a little cheese.

  • That is delicious.

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] It is spicy, though.

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] This is the perfect

  • ratio of cheese right here.

  • Steak!

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] Steak and potatoes.

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] I want this so badly.

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] Are you kidding me?

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] There's a lot of cheese.

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] Oh wait, are there no chips?

  • Can we all agree though if this one had

  • crispy potato chips, it would win?

  • - [Taste-Tester 3] For sure, the flavors

  • in this one was on point.

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] Mainly we're just thankful that

  • they made this food for us.

  • - [Taste-Tester 3] I can't stop eating.

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] Yeah, I'm just gonna keep eating it.

  • My winner, my decision is this guy.

  • - [Taste-Tester 1] Mine is the blackened chicken.

  • - [Taste-Tester 2] Angela?

  • - [Angela] Mine was the blackened chicken, as well.

  • - [Nick] Yeah! I won, I won, I win everything.

  • Yes, what do I win?

  • (upbeat surfer music)

  • - [Narrator] Oh yes!

- [Robin] Welcome to Tasty's nacho cook-Off.
