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.

Tools Used in Making Pulled Pork Nachos

The most important tool you will need for this recipe is a skillet. I like to use the biggest one I have which is a 12 inch cast iron skillet but you can get them even bigger. If you don’t have one that large, a smaller skillet will work similarly but make sure to set your oven racks low enough so that the entire dish will fit in your oven!
