When I don’t have much time to cook, nachos are one of my favorite dinners to make. It’s an all in one meal that makes everyone happy. If your pork is already cooked, you can have this ready in under 10 minutes!

Pulled pork, how I love thee. So versatile and soooo GOOD! I used my recipe for slow cooker pulled pork from my 5 Recipes 5 Ingredients cookbook. It isn’t cooked in a sauce so it can adapt to the flavors of any recipe. If that interests you, grab it here:

    I like to make a big batch and then freeze it in smaller portions for recipes like these pulled pork nachos. Just freeze in freezer bags and then thaw and eat! Of course, any other pulled pork recipe would work in this dish too! Just know that if it has a different sauce or seasoning on it, it will change the flavor of these nachos.

    This is more of a method than a recipe. If you like more cheese than I do, add more cheese! Prefer red salsa to salsa verde, go for it! Make it your own!

    I mix the pork with a little taco seasoning for extra flavor. I have a great recipe where you can make your own HERE.

    Put a layer of your favorite corn chips in the bottom of the skillet and top them with your favorite cheese. We like to use a combination of sharp cheddar and Colby Jack, but you can use anything you like!

    Top with half of your pulled pork, and then another layer of cheese. Repeat this step. Chips, cheese, pork, cheese.

    Drizzle with your favorite salsa verde, and pop your skillet into a 375-degree oven for about 7 minutes or until the cheese is melty and starting to brown. Oh yum!

    While the nachos are cooking, slice up the romaine lettuce and avocado. Toss both with a little lime juice and salt. We also like to add fresh cilantro and another squeeze of lime to the top of ours! So good!

    Once the nachos are out of the oven, cover them with your other toppings, a blob of sour cream and dinner is DONE!
