That’s right. I said it. Pulled Pork Nachos.

Last week I made the most incredible slow cooker BBQ Pulled Pork. As a family of three, it was near impossible for us to eat enough sandwiches to use it all. A quick family brainstorm over the question “What can I make with pulled pork besides sandwiches?” and NACHOS were an instant win.

Fast forward to today and I’ve created drool worthy loaded pulled pork nachos that are loved by the entire family!

Ingredients for Leftover Pulled Pork Nachos

Here’s the deal, this is a recipe that uses leftovers, which means there aren’t many ingredients needed! THREE base ingredients plus your toppings. That’s it!

  • Tortilla Chips
  • Pulled Pork
  • Medium Cheddar
  • Toppings

Ingredient Note: I used leftovers from our BBQ pork. However, I did sperate it BEFORE I added BBQ sauce.

Nacho Topping Ideas:

The toppings are a place where I like to encourage you to get really creative. We used what we had on hand the first time around, but have quickly adapted and made this recipe including some or all of the following:

  • Black Beans
  • Tomatoes
  • Green Onion
  • Pico De Gallo
  • Guacamole
  • Jalapenos
  • Sour Cream

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat and shred the pork. If using homemade, I find it easy to heat in the microwave, covered with a paper towel, for 1 to 2 minutes. If using store bought, follow the package directions.
  3. Place a layer of tortilla chips in the bottom of a cast iron skillet or foil lined half sheet pan.
  4. Top the chips with shredded cheese followed by the pulled pork.
  5. This is where you will also add additional toppings that you want heated like black beans or jalapenos. Sprinkle evenly across the cheese covered chips.
  6. Bake until heated through and the cheese has melted completely, roughly 10 minutes.
  7. Top with a sprinkle of green onion and sour cream.
