I love to create new dishes with left overs. I don’t mind using my left overs if I can repurpose them into a new dish. That is what I did here. I made nacho with left over pulled pork. It’s great to keep some left overs in your freezer for a quick meal during the week. I’m a huge nacho fan. I can eat them all different ways and all the time. These are made to be slightly, (I said slightly) healthier. I used a lot less cheese than normal but they still came out amazing.
I baked these nachos in the oven but you can also do in the microwave! Take a look at this recipe that is sure to please anyone.
Pulled Pork Nachos
8-10 oz tortilla chips
10-12 oz cooked pulled pork, heated
2 jalapeños, diced (seeds removed)
1 small onion, diced or thinly sliced
8 oz shredded cheese, (I used Colby Jack)
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup bbq sauce
1 t onion powder
1 t garlic powder
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl mix together the sour cream and bbq sauce and onion and garlic powder. Set aside. Lay out the tortillas on a baking sheet. Spread the warm pulled pork over the top of the tortillas evenly, top with jalapeño, onion and cheese. Bake in oven till cheese melts and nachos are warm about 10-12 minutes. Serve with immediately with sour cream bbq sauce.
Notes: Feel free to use more cheese. I prefer my nachos covered in cheese, however I was trying to be slightly healthier and reduced the cheese. You can add more toppings or change up the toppings. It’s best to heat the pulled pork ahead of time so you don’t overcook in the oven so it dries out.
