@LillyAdlin, Thanks for the suggestions and comment!

Cilantro has a pretty strong taste. Most people either love it or hate it. If you aren't sure about it I'd use it in moderation.

seasoned cooks need to take pity on those who may have just started cooking. remember to offer help surely someone did the same for you:)

If you don't know what skirt steak and cilantro are, you shouldn't be cooking, you should be getting take out.

Too many ingredients, Took too long.

What is pico la gallo? Ladynell

AndyGump - Cilantro is the leafy part of the coriander plant, sometimes called "Chinese parsley", commonly used with Mexican and Oriental food. Skirt steak is the plate, previously cheap, but now that fajitas are popular it's more expensive. It is the meat used for fajitas. Maybe if you don't have it in your area you could use flank steak? Marinate it with lime juice overnight for tenderness, grill, slice across the grain in strips.

Both skirt steak and cilantro are commonly found at any grocery store, even Walmart. Well, at least down here in the South. It you have problems finding it, I would suggest using chicken and skipping the cilantro. It is just a garnish. This is basically steak fajita nachos. Sounds yummy!

Just WHAT is a "Skirt" steak? in addition what is "cilantro" & where do you obtain it? This is one problem I have w/your recipe is you call for not so common ingredents w/o an explanation of what they are or where to obtain them. For the most part they are good & I have used a number of them Thanks AndyGump
