PULLED PORK NACHOS
Pulled Pork Nachos are a family favorite around here. We like to slow cook pulled pork and serve it when we have guests. You never want to be that family that hosts a party and runs out of food, right? So we generally overdo it in the pulled pork cooking category and therefore, have quite a bit left over. What do we do with it all? The great news for us is that we love the stuff and we have found several ways to cook the leftovers. We freeze the rest and space it out. One of our favorites is BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos. This is one of those recipes that has evolved after having a heaping pile of leftover pulled pork. The whole pulled pork nacho recipe pulls together in just a few minutes. Check out our favorite Oven Roasted Pulled Pork if you need an easy and delicious recipe.
If you don’t have leftover pulled pork at the ready you can use the recipe above, or you can buy it at the store already pulled. Either way, you are going to love this unique spin on regular nachos!
HOW TO MAKE PULLED PORK NACHOS
The true key to making the best Pulled Pork Nachos is layering so it seems like we should talk about that first. We’ve all been to that restaurant and ordered the Nachos only to find that all of the good stuff is on top. All it takes is one selfish chip grabber to nab all the bait, leaving only dry chips and a few sparse shreds of semi-melted cheese. Layering is the most important tactic in creating the perfect nacho platter. For this recipe, you are going to bake the nachos in a skillet and work on perfecting uniform cheese and pulled pork placement. Repeat after me, chips, cheese, pulled pork, chips, cheese, pulled pork. You get the idea right? Once you have used up all of your chips, throw a heaping pile of cheese and pulled pork on top and pop the entire skillet into the oven.
After the dish has cooked through, the magic happens. The most important ingredients go on top, BBQ Sauce and our White Sauce. No dollops, that is how to selfish chip grabbers get away with it. If you have one, use a piping bag (or a ziplock bag with the tip cut off) to make a criss-cross or zig-zag pattern on top, that way everyone gets a bit of the good stuff.
