Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 20 mins


  • 2 slices applewood bacon
  • 3 oz sirloin steak cubed
  • 1 jalapeño sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 small shallot minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 8 oz Kettle Brand Krinkle Cut Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper chips
  • Beer Cheese Sauce recipe as follows
  • ½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 green onions sliced on the diagonal

Beer Cheese Sauce

  • ½ cup pepper jack cheese grated*
  • ¼ cup cream cheese
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons half & half or milk
  • 2 tablespoons 10 Barrel Trail Beer


  • Place the bacon in a 10” skillet and cook over medium-low heat until crisp, about 7 minutes. Remove, chop, and set aside.
  • Add the cubed sirloin, jalapeño slices, and cajun seasoning to the skillet. Sauté until sirloin begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Add the shallot and garlic and sauté until fragrant, 1-2 minutes more. Place mix into a bowl and drain off any extra fat if needed.
  • In the meantime, add ½ cup pepper jack, cream cheese, parmesan, half & half, and the beer to a small pot and heat over medium low, stirring frequently, until a smooth sauce forms. Add additional half & half or beer if needed to thin.
  • Place the chips into the now-empty skillet. Top the chips with the steak & jalapeños, the pepper jack & blue cheeses, bacon, and the beer-cheese sauce. Cover with a lid or a sheet of foil, return the skillet to the stove over low heat until everything is heated through.
  • Garnish with the sliced green onions. Enjoy!


* It is important to use freshly grated cheese for the sauce. Pre-shredded cheese that you buy in the store is coated in an anti-caking agent, which will prevent you from making a smooth sauce. This step can be done at home ahead of time, just stick the grated cheese in a baggie or container and store in your cooler.
