My biggest problem with making pulled pork is the amount of leftovers we end up with! We usually freeze our leftover meats to use in other meals such as soups, like my hearty vegetable soup with pulled pork.

BUT THEN! We went to a local restaurant that served the most amazing nachos, and this idea popped into my head!

Usually, I make this with the leftovers from my oven roasted pulled pork shoulder, seasoned with my dry rub. If you are looking for a way to have leftovers…there’s an idea! 😉

This recipe is so easy and many of the ingredients can be swapped for other things you already have on hand.

Recipe for Pulled Pork Nachos

I actually use potato chips for this recipe. It was inspired by those restaurant nachos I talked about above!

First, remove the pulled pork from the fridge and let it rest for about 30 minutes. This will help the meat to become more pliable and easier to work with. If you are in a time crunch, place a microwave safe container of the meat into the microwave and nuke for about 30 seconds.

Lightly grease a baking sheet lined with heavy-duty foil. Spread the chips out onto the baking sheet in a single layer. It’s ok if they overlap…these nachos get heavy!

Then, layer the pulled pork on top of the chips. Add the purple onion, cheese and any other ingredients you want to use up.

Here are some other ideas:

  • Leftover baked beans

  • Tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Olives

Toss in the oven until the cheese is melted - about 15-20 minutes and serve immediately!
