Pulled Pork Nachos

Ohhhhhhh yeahhhhhhh. You know you want 'em. These are good.  Like really good.  It's 9am after a long evening out and all I want to do is eat my computer screen.   And you know how easy they are to make?  EASY.  Check it out. 


1/4 Cup BBQ Sauce 
2 Cups Pulled Pork
2 Cups Shredded Cheese (Mexican blends work well)
1/4 Cup Chopped White Onions 
1/8 Cup Chopped Green Onions 
Tortilla Chips (just enough to cover the pan)


3/4 Cup Sour Cream
2 Tbs Hot Sauce
2 Tbs BBQ Sauce 

You can make pulled pork a couple of different ways.  I always used my slow cooker.  NEVER AGAIN.  My mom made this pulled pork when I was home for the 4th and I'll tell you what - this was incredible.  She first rubs the pork down (bone in shoulder or pork butt) with a spicy dry rub. Then she throws the pork, fat side up, into a 425 degree oven, until you "can hear it sizzling."  Thanks Mom for the precise cooking instructions.  Let's call it an hour.  She then triple wraps the meat in heavy duty aluminum foil and slow cooks it at 300 degrees for 7 hours or until the meat is fork tender.

UPDATE:  This is for a very large, bone in piece of pork butt or shoulder (6-7 lbs).  Adjust the cooking time according to the size of the roast.  Basically estimate about an hour or so per pound.  

This will give you an incredibly moist pork with a beautiful crunchy bark.  Oh man.  Drool face over here.  

Anyway, create a thin layer of chips.  One of my biggest pet peeves are naked tortilla chips.  So, if you make a thin layer instead of a mountain, every chip will get some lovin'.  Mix the BBQ sauce with your pulled pork  and layer on top of the nachos.  Then add your cheese pleaaaase.  Putting the cheese on TOP of the pork is important because it will help keep the pork nice and moist.  Pop these babies in a 425 degree oven or until the cheese is melted and then top with your onions.  I like serving these with a sauce made with sour cream, BBQ sauce, and hot sauce.  Spicy, creamy, with a little bit of kick.  Da BOMB.  Stay hungry!
