Pulled Pork Nachos

I went rooting in the freezer the other night in order to plan some meals for the near future and I found a bag of pulled pork (actually found 3 bags) that I had done awhile back. Didn't feel like pulled pork sandwiches, but nachos sounded good.

First step, make some pico de gallo (no, I didn't use all the peppers and only 1/4 of the onion)

Dice it up all nice and fine

Time to build the nachos. Cheese was a mixture of Oaxaca, Chihuahua and some cheddar cheese. Also used some Hatch enchilada sauce.

Couple minutes under the broiler, guess I could have used the Egg, but I was trying to whip up the meal quick like. Topped it with some pico, sour cream and a bit of home-made quacamole on the side.

Nothing fancy or special, but a great way to use leftover pulled pork instead of just sandwiches. I think I'm gonna try some eggrolls with that next package....

  • Very nice, thanks for the idea! I've been doing a pulled pork Quesadilla with swiss cheese pickles and mustard. Kind of a Cuban Quesadilla.

    I say that is very fancy, and extra special!   I love PP nachos, and those are some of the nicest looking I have seen.  Do you chop everything for the pico with a knife or use a food processor/chopper?


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @SmokinDAWG82 - my wife actually made quesadillas. She wasn't feeling nachos.

    @SmokeyPitt - Thank you, kind Sir! I use a knife. The times I have tried a food processor, I always end up overdoing it and end up with salsa instead of pico.

  • Muy bueno.  Being a Texan, I'd probably use pulled brisket instead of pork, but that looks delicious too.

    I have some PP left over from Monday's cook.  This is a great idea for repurposing.

    Looks mighty tasty. I've made quesadillas with it, somehow never thought about nachos. I sure will now. That cold beer or (3) sounds good too. Although I seem to recall seeing it sold 6 to the (icy) bucket when I was down in TX.

  • Great idea, I had some leftover pp from the weekend, and we whipped this up for dinner.  It was great.  Only took us 3 minutes in the oven on broil at 400.  Great quick meal.
